Welcome to the Year 2 home page!
Our class teachers are Miss O’Sullivan, Mrs Ferguson.
Long Term Overview
Children will receive a reading book, that will be changed as they become confident in reading it. Within this, they will be practising their phonics to progress further through the 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 practised regularly at home so that the children become fluent and confident when reading.
In Year 2, children will receive spelling and timetables homework weekly, alongside their reading books. This is to enhance their learning in Phonics – the children will be taught sounds and words throughout the week.
Year 2 children will be completing all PE lessons on a Thursday and a Friday. 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
This term, our topic is all about pirates. At the beginning of our writing, we have an experience day. We used the ipads to find out as many amazing facts about pirates as we could. We can now tell you many facts about pirates. In Maths, we went on a 2D shape hunt. The children found the correct shapes and explained their properties.
