Kingstone & Thruxton Primary School

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2's Class page!

Hello and welcome to our class page! Our teacher is Miss Harrison who also leads Computing and Maths in school and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Jones.

We have 23 extremely clever, enthusiastic and hardworking children in our class and we always enjoy a challenge.

Our Big Question for this half term is; 

Big Question This term, our two big questions are ‘Why can’t a meerkat live in the North Pole?’ and ‘Why are humans not like tigers?’ We will explore these exciting questions by looking at a variety of animals and their habitats. Please take a look at our topic overview for more cross curricular links to our big questions.



This half term children will be going swimming on Wednesday afternoons so please could you send your child to school with a swimming kit each week. They will need a swimsuit, towel and googles (if needed). Preferably if girls could bring swimming hats if they already have one. As well as swimming, children will have the opportunity each day to walk, jog, skip, and engage in team games as part of our continuous provision.



Children will be set homework on Education City weekly (on Fridays), their log in can be found inside their reading diaries. The homework is optional but I would encourage your child to have a go when possible. There will also be homework linked to our topic which will be available on our class profile.


Reading Diary

Reading dairies should be in school every day so they can be checked by myself or Mrs Thomson, so please feel free to add any comments or concerns. It is important that children are listened to on a daily basis, comments from the listener should be recorded in your child’s diary. Your child will also have a pack of key words to learn, it is important these words are practised each day to help support fluency in their reading.



Spellings will go home on Friday’s and need to be learnt for a spelling test the following Friday. Please take a little time each evening to support your child with these. It is a vital part of their writing skills.  Spelling rules build up week on week, and it can be very difficult for children to catch up when they get left behind the rest of the class. 



News about upcoming trips will follow shortly. We will be going on an exciting trip to Bristol Zoo where we can test to see if humans really are like tigers and to learn how to survive the fierce Arctic winters.


Below is an optional topic homework for those of you who wish to complete them.


Here are some of the things we get up to in Class 2!
