frownWelcome to the Yellowhammer Classfrown


Hello and welcome to the Yellowhammer class page. My name is Mr Bradshaw and I am really excited about teaching Year 2 this year. I am currently in my 4th year of teaching. I have now taught in Key Stage 1 and 2. This is my second year teaching year 2 and I am really excited about starting the year!

I am the PE and RE leader for the school. 

I am particularly interested in sport and travelling. I love to visit new places. I like to spend my spare time, I like to read all different types of books, I like to cook and spend time with my friends and family.

The Great Fire Of London

The Great Fire Of London 1

This week, we travelled back in time to the 2nd September 1666. We found a diary entry from Samuel Pepys that had been left behind by him. We are going to step into the shoes of Samuel Pepys and write a diary entry of our own next week. 

Diwali Day

In year 2, we had a Diwali day. We learnt about the way that Diwali is celebrated and different clothes that people would wear at different celebrations. 

Teach your Monster to Read! 


We have a fab new platform for the children to practise their phonics skills at home and at school. It is called  Teach your Monster to Read. It is free to use on an internet browser. The children have been shown how to use it and are very excited to use it!

 I would love the children to use Bug Club at home to help them with their reading skills. There are lots of fabulous texts: comics, stories, plays, information texts and poems. Please encourage your child to read at home using Bug Club. It can be found following the link below. I will be sending home the children's log-in with the school code- wklh.

All of the reading stages have been updated there are lots of books to discover! 

Happy Reading!

Useful information



  • Weekly homework challenges include: spellings, reading, Times Table Rock Stars and Bug Club.

  • Each half term, we will alternate between weekly homework, which will be a number of challenges set every week, and half termly homework. This will be set at the beginning of the half term and will be handed in the week before the end of each half term. Children are to choose at least 3 of the activities to complete at home. Completed homework is to be handed in on the Monday of the last full week of each half term. 

  • Children are expected to read at home regularly and bring their reading book to school every day. 

  • If your child is having a school dinner then please share the different options available with them so that they know whether they are having the meat, vegetarian or salad option.

  • During the Summer term the children will complete their SATs. These are National tests which all children in Year 2 are required to complete. We will be working towards these throughout the year.



Many thanks,

Mr Bradshaw
