Year 2

Our Year 2 teachers are Mrs Rimmer and Miss Kirkham who are supported by Mrs Simmonite and Ms Johnson.

Topic - Autumn Term 1 - What's for Tea?

During Autumn 1, the children explored where different foods cam from.  They learned about this in more detail during their residential trip to Whirlow Hall Farm where they found out what it was like to a working farmer!  They got busy in the kitchen towards the end of the half-term making products to serve at their very own "Pop-up Café".

 Topic - Autumn Term 2 -  "What's in your stocking?"

In Autumn 2 we will be travelling back to a time when Queen Victoria was on the throne.  We will be studying different sources to find out about the past.  We have already had a go at playing with different Victorian toys and we will be using these as inspiration for when we make our own later this half-term.

For more information on our topic and how this will be covered by the key National Curriculum subjects, please refer to our curriculum newsletter.

General Information

Uniform  - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kits are clearly labelled. 

Medication - Please let the school and your child's class teacher know if your child has any condition requiring medication, including allergies or asthma. If your child needs to be on a course of medication then please complete the relevant form with the school office. 

Our PE days are Monday (indoor) and Wednesday (outdoor).  Please ensure your child has their PE Kit in school throughout the week as PE days may vary due to school events/weather conditions.



At Woodhouse West we believe that learning at home is a key aspect of children’s development. It helps children improve and consolidate key skills, and provides a valuable opportunity for children to share with their parents/carers learning they have been doing at school.

Children can choose from a homework menu and for each task completed they earn a dojo point or even a Green Card!  This will be a range of activities relating to their current topic that parents can complete with their children. Please do share photographs of your children carrying out the tasks by e-mailing them to
