A little bit about me

Welcome to Y2! My name is Charlotte Perez Smith and I have been at Norton Free for nearly 2 years. I have been teaching for nearly 17 years and have worked in a variety of schools across South Yorkshire. 

I am a mum to a 7 year old little girl who I love to spend time with. I have a house full of 3 noisy cats and a very lovely dog.

In my spare time I love to read and go to the cinema.

My favourite subjects to teach are Art and English.

Below is some information about our learning in Year 2.

Drop off and Collection information- September 2023


Hello everyone. I hope that you have had a lovely summer holidays. There will be some slight changes to drop offs and collections in September. I have included information relevant to year 2 below.



Children in the breakfast club will stay with Mrs Rasdale and be taken to the Y2 classroom.


Start time: 8:50am


Miss Perez Smith or Mrs Lawton will greet the children at the door in a morning.



School finish time: 3:20pm


Children will be released from the Y2 classroom  to parents who should wait by the fence between the KS1 and KS2 yard where they were dropped off in the morning.


PE will be on a Thursday and a Friday afternoon. The children should come to school in their PE kit. Please ensure all jewellery, including earrings, are removed. Please send the children in jogging bottoms and a jacket/jumper when it is cold.


Reading books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday morning by Miss Rasdale. 


If you have any concerns about your child please contact the class teacher in the first instance. Miss Perez Smith can be contacted via email ( or through the school telephone number.

Year 2 topics


The Year 2 team includes Miss Perez Smith (Class Teacher), Ms Rasdale (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Lawton (Class teacher all day Tuesday).


Throughout Year 2 the children work on cross curricular topics which are changed each half term. Our topics for this year are:

A Twist in the Tale!
We will learn about fairy tales with a twist, our local area and materials.


Rumble in the Jungle

We will be learning about living things and their habitats as well as exploring the depths of the rainforest. We have an exciting in school animal experience this term.


London's Burning!

We will be identifying landmarks in London as well as looking at The Great Fire of London. We will also look at Firefighting, and how this has changed since the 17th Century.


Castles, Knights and Dragons
During this topic, we'll learn about the different parts of a castle and why they were built. We will enjoy investigating how knights lived and their role in society.


I need a hero!

We will learn about heroes of the past and present. 

Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside!
We will be comparing seaside holidays in the past with holidays today. Our work will focus on travel, clothing and leisure activities. We will have a focus that covers both history and geography, as we look at different seaside resorts 
in the UK.
