Welcome to the Year 2 home page!
Our class teachers are Miss O’Sullivan and Mrs Robson.
Long Term Overview
Children will receive a reading book, that will be changed every Monday. They will be practicing their phonics to progress further through the Read, Write, Inc reading scheme. We will hear the children read throughout the week on a one-to-one basis. Children will also read to adults during other activities, such as Guided Reading. The reading books that are sent home should be practiced regularly at home so that the children become fluent and confident when reading.
In Year 2, children will receive spellings and either Literacy/Maths homework on a Friday.
Year 2 children will be completing all PE lessons on a Monday and a Thursday. The required uniform for PE is shorts/ tracksuit trousers and a t-shirt.
Within Year 2, Class Dojo is used to reward children where they can collect Dojo points. It should also be used to communicate with the teacher about your child.

Learning This Term
We have loved getting to know our new class this Autumn term! In Year 2 we have been focusing on sentence structure, making sure we are using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. Refreshing ourselves with the phonic sounds after a lovely summer break. In Maths we have concentrating on place value in Maths, how to use manipulatives effectively and how to separate tens and ones. Looking forward to a fun half term 🙂
