​​​​Welcome to Year 2!

 

In Year 2 we have lots of things to look forward to this year.

In our English work, we will be developing our reading and writing skills through a wide range of texts. We have recently had a visit from a very grumpy giant as part of our traditional tales topic! We really encourage a love of books and enjoyment of reading through individual, guided and shared reading activities.

In mathematics we will be taking part in plenty of ​practical activities involving number, shape, space, measure, and problem- solving to improve our Numeracy skills and relate them to real-life situations.

The Lunar Curriculum includes History, Geography, Design Technology, Art and ICT and these subjects are taught through topics and key questions. We have already explored the life of Florence Nightingale, the reasons why the Titanic sank and the battle of Queen Elizabeth I with Mary Queen of Scots. We look forward to using our skills to investigate other key questions such as; 'What makes up our landscape?'.

The children also have weekly sessions of R.E., Music, Science and P.E.

The children enjoy taking part in athletics, dance and gymnastic activities and need their P.E.kit in school all of the time.

The children must bring their reading book home every day and show that they have read 5 times a week to be entered into our 100 books raffle! Homework will be given on Fridays and expected on Tuesday and will include spellings, english or maths homework or research project!

If you have any questions about Year 2, please speak to a member of our staff.
