Year 2 - Cardiff 2023 - 2024

Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to your child's first term in Year 2. The children have all settled really well and are adapting to life in Year 2. It has been really lovely to see how they have embraced the new challenges and increased expectations of Year 2. It can be quite overwhelming to make the transition into Year 2, but everyone has made an impressive start. This year your child(ren) will be working with Miss Aimson, Mrs Turnbull, Mrs Hall and Mrs Afzal. We hope you find all the information you need on the class page, both in practical terms and in terms of learning. Below we have attached a number of links and documents to enable you to support your child(ren) at home.






Book changing day: currently these are Monday and Wednesday, but sometimes may be changed based on staffing. 

Homework: this will be posted on Google Classroom on a Friday and Homework books given out the same day. Homework books need to be returned by the following Wednesday to enable us to mark the children's work. 

PE: Tuesday and Friday (until October half -term break)

In Year 2, we have exlpianed to the children how they are the 'eldest pupils' in K ey Stage 1. As such, they will be setting an example to our younger pupils. It is important that we encourage the children to be more independent. Your support with this would be really beneficial and very much appreciated. Below are some suggestions of how you can assist in promoting independence skills;

  • Encourage your child(ren) to get their own book bag ready at home.
  • Allow your child(ren) to carry their own book bag and water bottle on the way to school.
  • With homework, ask your child(ren) what they think they have to do first.
  • Allow them to make mistakes; they will learn from these!
  • Remind them about the power of good manners.
  • Please encourage your child(ren) to pick and eat healthy snacks at break times - however, in Key Stage 1 we do offer a healthy snack.


Many thanks for your continued support,


Mrs C Turnbull and Miss D Aimson.

Year 2 Class Teachers.
