Year 2

Our class reader book

In Year Two we are learning about the Victorian era. Our class novel 'Tilly and The Time Machine' is about a girl called Tilly who lives with her dad. Tilly's dad builds a time machine in the shed and there's only one place Tilly really wants to go but then something goes wrong! Tilly's dad gets stuck in the past and only she can save him. On Tilly's adventure to find her dad she goes back in time to the Victorian era. She meets Queen Victoria and a chimney sweep. The children will dive deep into the vocabulary of the book, make predictions, retrieve information they need to answer questions and summarise and discuss what they have read with the rest of the class. I can't wait to read it with the class to find out how Tilly finds her dad and how she escapes the Victorian era.

Dear Lord,

Help my class to use their eyes to see their friends,

Open their ears to listen,

Let their heart love everyone around them,

Help them to grow and learn each day

and to be the best they can be this school year.

If you have any questions or concerns please see Miss Langston. I am more than happy to speak to parents about any issues or conerns or whether you want an update regarding your child.

Reading books

Reading is at the heart of all our learning at Holy Family. To support this at home, please could all children ensure that they read their school reading book every night and that the planner is signed by an adult. Children need a reading book in school each day. Books are closely matched to their reading ability and will be changed as they improve and can answer comprehension questions about the text.



All children will be given weekly English and maths homework along with the weekly spelling pattern we are focusing on the following week. This is to be completed and returned to school as required. All written homework must be presented to the highest standard. 



PE days are Mondays and Wednesdays - please make sure you bring the correct kit (white top, dark shorts and indoor shoes in the Winter term). Please make sure any earrings can be removed or are not worn on PE days. I recommend children bring their P.E kits to school on Monday, leave it at school and take it home Friday to be washed.


School uniform

We pride ourselves on the appearance of our children. Please help us to maintain this by ensuring all children attend in the correct uniform, including school shoes.
