Year 2

Welcome from Miss Brewin-Woodhouse!

Hello, I am Miss Brewin and I am the Year 2 teacher at Shobnall Primary & Nursery School.

It is a pleasure to work with such wonderful children and keep them motivated with their learning. I am enthusiastic in ensuring all children receive new experiences with their learning and as many creative opportunities as possible.

I am very fortunate to work with such an enthusiastic team. This year Mrs Jamil, Mrs Shannon, Mrs Traczyk and Mrs Shannon will be working with us!

Key Information

The School Day

The school day starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3.30pm. The total time this amounts to in a typical week is 32.5 hours.

Book Bags and Equipment

Please ensure your child brings the following to school daily:

  • A small, school book bag.
  • A reading book and reading diary (which will be provided in class).
  • A water bottle (must contain water).


PE will be on Wednesdays. Children will need to come to school in their kit on their allocated day. An outdoor kit should consist of plain black or navy jogging bottoms, a plain black or navy sweatshirt and trainers. For health and safety, children who wear earrings should have these removed on PE days.


Our weekly timetable for 2023-2024 will be available to view imminently. Once available, please click on the link to view. Please note that this may be subject to change.

Year 2 Long Term Overview


For homework, we ask that the children read for at least 10 minutes every night, and talk about the books they are reading as this will support enjoyment, fluency and understanding. It is necessary for reading to be recorded in their reading diaries at least 3 times a week.  Each child has their own homework book. There will be spellings every week. These will also be uploaded onto Spelling Shed. I also set either a piece of English or Maths homework every Friday and collect it in the following Wednesday.
