Year 2 2020 - 2021

Welcome to Year 2


Maths with Parents 

Maths with ParentsThe Maths with Parents programme is not only perfectly in line with Maths lessons in school but it is a really easy programme to follow each week. The initial registration is the only part that is a little bit complicated (some pupils were registered last year, others were not).

Spellings (updated 3/1/2020)

All children (who are in school) will be retested on their Year 1 words during the first week back. We will then send home a copy so you can see which words they need to continue to work on. 

Year 1 Common Exception Words

Year 2 Common Exception Words


The children have now completed their phonics screen. Some children will continue to work on phonics during the school day, other children will move onto 'Novel Study' but have a phonics intervention. Some children will move onto novel study. 


Read Write Inc. Phonics: Blue Set 6 Storybook 4 King Of The BirdsIf your child is still completing a phonics book within school, they will continue to read this book at home too.

The children have been assessed on our school reading scheme and as the children on novel study will no longer receive a phonics book they will have access to a reading book from our levelled books. Your child will bring home a book which they should be able to read easily. There shouldn't be a challenge in this book as it is their opportunity to show themselves off as a reader. They will read books at their instructional level in school with us. Due to Covid 19, the children will only be able to bring a book home on a Monday and will need to be returned the following Monday. This is so we can keep track of the 72 hour quarantine. The children can read other things as part of their daily read - magazines, menus, books you have at home. 

There are plenty of simple ways you can help your child with English in Year 2.

The children absolutely loved 'Movers and Shakers' before we broke off to enjoy our Christmas activities. We are continuing with this topic and linking it with our novel study. 

Our Cornerstones topic for Autumn Term 2 was 'Movers and Shakers'. This project began to teach the children about historically significant people who have had a major impact on the world. They have used timelines, stories and historical sources to find out about the people featured and used historical models to explore their significance.

Our Cornerstones topic for Autumn Term 1 was 'Wriggle and Crawl'. The children observed the lifecycle of a butterfly, researched all about the honey bee and independently completed a report about them, completed a mini beast hunt to see what they could find on the school grounds, along with many other activities. Keep your eye on the gallery - pictures to follow soon. 


For Anti-Bullying Week we all wore our craziest odd socks to celebrate our differences and what meakes us each unique. Check us out!
