Mr Jennings

Year 2 Class Teacher


Dear Parents, Guardians and Children,

Welcome to Honeygold Class, I am very excited to kick off the year getting to know you all and starting our learning journey together in year 2. 

Below, you will find outlined what we will be learning about during the autumn term. Due to the turbulent couple of years that we have experienced, there may be changes to help fill in any gaps that we meet on our journey together.  


During our first term in English we will be focusing on instruction writing, get your pots pans and ingredients out as we're following cooking instructions. I hope the children are excited as I to see what goes into the infamous pumpkin soup.

Following from instructions we will be delving into recounts and what has been. We will be recounting the Great Fire of London and what we have done on our Holidays along with many other ficticious ventures.


We have a strong focus this year on reading in Honeygold. It is a vital skill that needs to be honed this year as the children approach KS2 and SATs. I will be expecting the children to be reading daily for at least 10 minutes. Books will be changed on Fridays.

Reading at home will go hand in hand with reading at school and will unlock your childs undersdtanding of the english language both verbally and gramatically.


During the first autumn term in maths, we will be counting to 100, followed by addition and subtraction and leading to our timestables - Concentrating on the 2s 5s and 10s.


We begin our science topic looking within, our topic being Aniamls including Humans. The children will learn about movement, diets, keeping healthy and having good hygeine.


Londons burning or at least it was in 1666, we start this year delving into the mystery of thr Great Fire of London, we will looking into characters such as Samuel Pepys and how this event impacts us today.


As always, our first half term will recap and further delve into internet safety and making sure the children are confident in understanding what they can do to keep themselves safe online. 


Children will be having 2 PE session each week on Tuesday and Thursday. As a class, we regularly use the playground outside for movement breaks and I therefore recommend making sure that the children wear suitable school shoes to be outside running and playing.


On PE days the children are expected to come to school in the following NOT UNIFORM:

  • Bottle green shorts
  • Red Pippins t-shirt
  • Trainers
  • Socks (if children wear tights regularly) 
  • Black/Grey/Navy jogging bottoms
  • Sweat band (if needed to cover a religious bracelet)

Please make sure that children are not wearing any jewellery on PE days apart from for religious reasons. 


The children will be receiving their homework on a Friday and will be expected back in the following Wednesday. Alongside their homework, the children will be bringing home spellings each week to practice, this book will be kept at home and will be brought in for the spelling test only. 

I know it's going to be a fantastic energetic first term back and I am excited to get started.

As always, if you have any problems or questions, please send me an email at or call the school office to make an appointment.
