Welcome to Year 2

Our Class Value is Courage


In year 2 we are becoming far more independent in our learning. We have lots of rich and interesting topics to look forward to. 
Homework consists of daily reading and practise of spellings. Spelling journals will be sent home at the start of each half term with a list to be learnt each week. Children will complete their spelling test on a Friday. To encourage independence, we ask that children place their own reading book in the basket to be changed when their reading log has been signed by an adult. 
Daily reading with your child is the very best way to support their reading. As well as listening to your child read their school scheme book, encourage them to read books of their own choosing to develop a love for reading. Sharing stories with your child is also a great way to model pace, fluency and expression in reading. We build time in the school day to share a class story. If you have any recommendations for a really amazing book we'd love to hear about it. Please ensure that your child has their reading book with them each day as they will be given opportunities to read in school. Any reading you do with your child is greatly appreciated. If you're looking for a little inspiration, a list of recommended texts for KS1 can be found on the English Curriculum Page. This is a great place to start when thinking about additional books for your child. 
All school uniform and PE kits should be labelled. The children in Year 2 are provided with a healthy snack each day. They also need a bottle of water.
