Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Free School Meal Voucher Scheme. Read More
As you will now be aware the Government has announced a plan for students to return to school over a phased period. These timescales are open to possible change given the rate of infection in the country. We are currently working to plan for return of pupils and we will ensure that you are updated as soon as possible. We reassure you that the health and wellbeing of you and your children will be at the front of our plans

Year
2

The teachers in Year 2 are Mrs Rowlands and Mrs Rowley. They are supported by teaching assistant Mrs Conrad.

In Year 2 we cover some fun and exciting topics. These include:

During our Journeys topic, we will use maps to find different locations and track journeys. We will look at journeys of famous explorers and vessels and how transport has changed through time.

In our Buildings topic we will look famous buildings around the world, past and present. We will look at why different materials are used to create different buildings and how homes vary in cultures around the world.

We will learn about the features of coastal areas and seaside towns, holiday destinations around the world and the wildlife that calls the coastline home.

In Literacy we learn how to write for a range of purposes. These include stories, poems, instructions, explanations and other non-fiction genres. We will use a range of stimuli including picture books, videos and out of school visits.

To help us with our spellings we use the No Nonsense Spelling scheme and have a focused spelling session every day in school. We take our test on Thursday mornings.

Children practice their reading scheme books at home and they are listened to regularly by a member of staff. A daily guided reading session focuses upon developing phonics to decode, alongside the reading skills of inference and deduction.

In Numeracy, children are able to consolidate their number work, focusing on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We also introduce the importance of learning our times tables, and by the end of the year we expect every child to know their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. We also learn to name different 2D and 3D shapes and identify their properties, along with looking at fractions and statistics. We also have a daily arithmetic session that focuses on developing fluency and accuracy in relation to the four operations.

We have a range of Science topics running throughout the year. We learn about animals including humans, plants, living things and their habitats and uses of everyday materials. We take part in practical investigations and ask questions about the world around us.

 Every child has the opportunity to participate in three class trips, three Inspire workshops and one assembly across the year.

Year 2 have a message for you...
