Welcome to Year 2's class page!

We are a class of 21 enthusiastic learners, lead by our teachers: Mrs O'Kane and Mrs Wilson. 

A warm welcome to our class page, where we would like to share our learning with you. On our page you will find pictures, examples of work as well as important notices/dates for your diary. Included at the bottom of the page is an overview of what topics are covered term by term.   

We hope you enjoy being a part of our learning journey!

An overview of the year....

Please click on the icon below to get an overview of the curriculm being provided for your child this year.  We are very busy in Year 2 and would love it if you would support us by discussing topics covered in school at home or by visiting the library so we are able to further enhance our knowledge through sharing books.

Key Information

PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday and Friday.  Please ensure that your child is sent into school with their full PE kit on a Monday so that it can remain in school for both lessons and be returned home to be washed on Friday. If your child is still struggling to get themselves changed, please continue to practise this at home so that they are able to do this independently.

Reading books will be changed every Thursday.  On a Thursday, your child will recieve two reading books.  When possible, try and read for 10 minutes each day with your child.  It is good practise to read the books provided more than once to help develop your child's fluency and vocabulary acquisition.  Please record any reading completed at home in the reading record provided.  It is so important that your child reads regulary and we really appreciate your support on this matter.  So that your child can read as often as possible, please send in their home reading books into school every day so that they can be read with an adult in school as well.

Homework will consist of spelling and times table practise.  Your child will be sent home with their log-in details so that they can access both the Spelling Shed and TTRS apps.

English

Year 2 have been busy writing about their experiences during the summer .  It has been lovely to get to know a little about what they have been up to and learn more about each of them as they settle back into the school routine.  

Moving forwards, we will be focussing on stories with familiar settings.  We are going to be looking at The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson, Not Now Bernard by David McKee and Peace at Last by Jilll Murphy.  We will be sequencing events and structuring sentences to create our very own narrative.  We will keep you posted with some oof our fabulous work!

Maths

Year 2 are off to a fantastic start! We have been introduced to the Times Table Rockstars app and are using it to learn our times tables. Remember, you can log in at home to practice too. Rapid recall of these facts has a massive impact on children's learning in all areas of Maths, so keep up the good work Year 2! 

Religious Education

We will be reflecting on the topic of Chosen People this term.  We will consider what it means to be chosen and how this makes us feel.

Times Tables

We use these songs at the start of our Maths lessons as a fun way of learning to count in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s. Ask your child to show you their funky moves!
