Year 2B 2019 - 2020

Ms Briscoe

Welcome to 2B 

Ms Briscoe's Class




'We Love, Learn and Live Like Jesus'

We are enjoying getting to know each other in Year 2 and have a busy timetable throughout the week.

Each day begins with an independent activity which is either Maths or English based and whilst the children get on with this, I will hear some of them read. Please ensure that your child's reading book and diary are in school with them each day.  

Our PE day is Thursday so please ensure full kit is in school each week for this. 

Please see the attached documents below which contain information about topics that the children will be involved in throughout Autumn Term and also the 'End of Year Expectations' for reading, writing and maths that the children will be assessed against. 


Snack and Water

A piece of fruit will be provided for your child every day throughout Year 2. If they wish to bring in an alternative healthy snack, this is ok. Please be mindful of nut allergies that may affect other pupils when choosing food to semd to school.

We encourage children to have their own water bottles with them. There is a tray provided for these so that the children have access to them throughout the day. Ensure they are named and contain only plain water; flavoured water or juice is not allowed. 


Wednesday Word

Every Wednesday your child will bring home the ‘Wednesday Word’. This is a link between home, school and parish and shares the Sunday Gospel. There are also some fun activities that you can share with your child related to the Gospel.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. If there is anything you can send in from home (photos, books, baptism candles etc) to support your child's learning with any of our topics please feel free!



Homework is given out on a Friday. There will be maths activities to complete and spellings to learn. Homework should be returned by Thursday of the week after it is given. Spelling tests will also take place on Thursdays. 

You will have recently received a login for Times Tables Rockstars, this is an online times table game accessed at ( or can be downloaded to your phone or tablet as an app. 

Please try to make time to read with your child; even 10 minutes per day really does make a difference! At this stage we are building on fluency and understanding so after reading, ask 'show me' questions or 'prove it' questions which require your child to demonstrate their deeper knowledge of the text.

Thank you for your continued support.
