Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to Year 2!

Our class teacher is Miss Birchall and our teaching assistants are Miss Harris and Mrs Morgan-Fox.

This year:

• PE is on a Monday with Mr Hatton. 

• Music is on a Thursday with Mrs Brocklehurst.

• Dance is on a Friday with Miss Lily.

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 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. 

This half term (Autumn 1)

This half term, we have completed a science learning unit about the uses of everyday materials. We completed different hands-on activities including sorting and grouping materials and objects, testing how we can change the shapes of different materials and using our knowledge to try and create a catapult! We had lots of fun learning in this way.

We will also be learning about history this half term – our learning unit is ‘My grandparents’ childhood.’ If your child has grandparents that they can talk to about what life was like for them growing up, this would be a great opportunity to enhance their learning!

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

In Maths, we are working on place value – this involves understanding the value of digits in 2-digit numbers, and how we can represent and make numbers.

We will also be learning how to create polystyrene printing in art.
