Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to your first term in Year 2! We hope you had a wonderful summer holiday and are feeling refreshed and ready for a new year at Ashton Gate. We have lots of exciting learning and events planned for this academic year and are looking forward to sharing them with each of you.


Please refer to our curriculum overview and termly newsletter for information about what we will be learning about in each subject. If you or anyone that you know has any skills linked to what we will be learning about this term, and you would be willing and able to come in and share them with the children, please let your child’s class teacher know as this can be a very enriching experience for the children and they absolutely love having visitors.


During the first term we will be setting a homework challenge. The children will be asked to produce a piece of art inspired by the work of ‘Sonia Delaunay’ (who is to be researched at home) or ‘Paul Klee’ (who is studied in school). Please bring your artwork to school by Monday 16th October. We will be holding an art exhibition to showcase the children’s work and invite you to come into school and share this experience with the children on Wednesday 18th October 2023.


As always if you have any queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch with your child's class teacher. Email addresses can be found below and we will be available at the end of each day.


Just a reminder that Year 2 classes will  exit at the end of the day through the following Year 1 classroom doors:


Oak - Apple class

Maple - Elm class

Rowan - Cherry class

Sycamore - Beech class


Many thanks
