Carlton Junior and Infant School


Welcome to Year 2

My name is Mrs Akhtar and I am the class teacher for Year 2. I am also a senior member of staff at Carlton J & I School. I thoroughly enjoy working with the children of Carlton and developing them to become confident individuals with aspirations for their future.

I am very excited about showcasing your children’s work on our new school website every week and look forward to working alongside all parents to ensure the very best outcomes are achieved for all children.




This week children in Year 2 re-enacted the story Traction Man. We really enjoyed sequencing the story in action and watching the children perform in groups.

Well done! Year 2






This term in Science, we are leaning about Habitats in order to this we challenged the children to think about and understand the difference between objects that are living, not living or have never lived.

We talked and categorised objects that are living or non-living.

How to help you child

Ask your child if a familiar object in your house is living or non -living.





Happy New Year! We have had a wonderful first day back. We have been reading today and answering lots of questions relating to the text.

Thank you to all our parent’s for helping your child read during the holidays. Keep it up.




This week we have been really busy planning and writing our fantasy stories. We used story mountains to help us think about the different components of our stories.

 Keep it up Year 2 you are working really hard.




This week children in Year 2 have really impressed the staff. We have been looking at fantasy stories. The children have written their own character descriptions using adjectives.
