St John's CE (VA) J and I School

Welcome to Green Class (Year 2)


Miss T Pollard  (Science Lead)


Mrs A Kidger


This is an exciting and busy year for your child and I hope that we can work together to ensure your child has the maximum possible success.  On this page you will be able to find information about school, the topics your child is learning and how you can help at home.

Teaching and Learning in Green Class:

As a Christian school learning from and about religion is fundamental to everything we do.  We learn about different religions in a dedicated RE lesson once a week as well as focussing on Christian values in class worship.  We learn about society and how we can be healthy and happy citizens through our weekly circle time activities and PHSCE sessions.

In Green class we follow the National Framework for Maths and English.  As well as this we study a range of interesting topics (many chosen in line with the children’s areas of interest), integrating class trips into our school year in order to bring this learning alive. The children also have the opportunity to develop their creative side in art and DT.   We love being active in Green class and express this through a range of sports and games in our PE lessons.  Most of all we try to have fun in everything that we do to keep the children interested, engaged and motivated in their learning.


It is important that Year 2 children read every day with an adult.

Homework is set weekly on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday.  Homework consists of: daily reading, literacy and/or numeracy work and occasionally topic based work.  This will help to consolidate the learning taking place within school.  If your child has any problems with their homework please encourage them to come and see me at the beginning of the week.

’I am so proud’ of my child:

During the year I am sure that there will be many occasions where you will feel exceptionally proud of your child’s achievements.  These might be achievements in school, at home or activities that they take part in at clubs out of school.  For example, your child may have achieved something musical or sporting, they may have been particularly helpful or they may have grasped a new skill they have been working hard at.  We would love to share these moments with you.  It would be great if you could download one of our forms, by clicking here, completing it with your child’s achievement and sending it into school.  

We look forward to hearing about what your child has achieved.

Other information:

Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled. The children should come to school wearing  PE kit on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Please encourage your child to bring a water bottle to school every day as this will avoid dehydration.

Please let the school and the class teacher know if your child has any allergies that we do not already know about, or needs to take any medication.

Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months.

If you need to discuss anything with Miss Pollard please feel free to make an appointment before or after school.  We will be more than happy to help you!
