Welcome to Year 2!

Our class teacher is Mrs Parkinson (Tuesday – Friday) and our teaching assistant is Miss Harris. On a Monday our teacher is Mrs Williams.

• PE is on a Tuesday with Mr Hatton.  

• Music is on a Wednesday with Mrs Brocklehurst.

• Dance is on a Friday.

Reading and Homework

We read every day in our daily Phonics lessons in year 2.

Your child will have their reading book changed at least once a week, it is clear your child has read the book at home when asked questions or the school diary is signed. 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. 

Autumn 1

This half term, we have started our learning about ‘Flight’ by making paper aeroplanes and testing how well they flew on the playground! We then looked at all the ways humans (unsuccessfully!) tried to fly. We will soon be looking at some of the first woman in the world to fly, along with their amazing achievements, including Bessie Coleman and Amelia Earhart.

We will also learn about Healthy Eating and how to keep our bodies healthy in our Science unit along with a DT unit around Mechanisms and Moving Monsters.

In English, we are reading ‘Penguin in Peril’ by Helen Hancocks.

In Maths, we are focusing on Number and Place Value looking at calculations within 20, but also understanding numbers to 100.
