Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to Year 2!

Our class teacher is Mrs Parkinson and our teaching assistants are Miss Harris and Miss Mellor. Mrs Shepherdson will also be in our classroom on Tuesdays.

This year:

• PE is on a Monday with Mr Hatton. 

• Drumming is on a Thursday with Mr Smith.

• Dance is on a Friday.

Reading and Homework

We read everyday in our daily Phonics lessons in year 2.

Your child will have their reading book changed at least once a week. It is important that your child reads as much as possible (with an adult or older sibling) at home, in order for them to reach their full potential.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, the best way to do this is to phone the office.

Thank you

Mrs Parkinson


This half term (Autumn 2)

This half term we will be looking into Materials in Science.

This will include lot of experiments and looking at the properties of different materials - including glass, wood, plastic and metal.

In Maths we are working on Addition and Subtraction using 2 digit numbers.

In English we have started reading the book 'Juniper Jupiter' by Lizzy Stewart.


Autumn 1

Last half term we learnt lots about the Victorians in our History Topic.

We learnt lots about the Victorians during this topic including the ultimate Victorian - Queen Victoria, schools in this era, children working in coal mines and factories and the games children used to play to relax!

We also enjoyed a live lesson with Gallery Oldham where they taught us all about Oldhamers during the Victorian times and about the mills and factories Oldham became famous for. During this lesson we created a pop up mill picture of one of the mills. 

Using all this information we learnt, we wrote diaries pretending we were Victorian children at work!

We had lots of fun and really enjoyed this topic.
