Year 2

Welcome to Year Two!



There are three classes in Year Two; 2MH, 2EB and 2MT. Year Two’s teaching team includes Miss Hughes (Teacher 2MH & Year 2 Leader), Miss Boyle (Teacher 2EB), Miss Turner and Mrs McFall (Teachers 2MT). The support staff in Year Two are Mr Beaver, Mrs Taylor and Miss Sutcliffe. On Friday afternoons, Mr Beaver teaches 2EB and Mr Hirst teaches 2MH. The children in Year Two enjoy a varied and exciting curriculum with lots of creative activities. We work very hard to ensure that the transition from Year One to Two is smooth and successful. The teachers will update this page; make sure you check back for weekly updates.


As of January we welcome Miss Black, a third year Edge Hill student, to the year two team...


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Miss Black and I will be a trainee teacher in your child’s class for the next 10 weeks. I am currently in my final year at Edge Hill University and in July I will be graduating with a Primary Education degree and Qualified Teaching Status.

The past week I have been observing Miss Boyle in her class, getting to know your children and the school. It is a pleasure to be placed at Linaker Primary School for my final placement and I am really looking forward to working with both the staff and pupils this term.

I will be available before and after school, so if you have any questions at any time do not hesitate to ask.

Key information

We have made a few changes to homework in Year 2 for 2017.  

Please click on the link below to find out a little bit more about reading, homework, spellings etc.

Traction Man

For Autumn term 1, Year 2 will be focussing their work around the topic 'Superheroes'. This will link in with our Science as we learn about materials, art as we design and print new superhero capes and history when we will be learning about heroes from the past.

The Dark

In Autumn term 2, the children will be doing lots of history. We will be focussing our work around a book named The Dark, written by Lemony Snicket. We will also be learning about the gunpowder plot and the great fire of London.

The Magic Paintbrush


In Spring Term 1 the year 2 topic is China. We have hooked the children in using a story by one of our favourite authors, Julia Donaldson. The story is set in China and is about a little girl named Shen. She gets given a very special gift.
