Welcome to Year 2.

We are a kind class who love learning about new things and try our best every day.

Our Topic is: "Movers and Shakers"

We are looking at historically significant people who have had a major impact on the world. We are learning to use timelines, stories and historical sources to find out about the people featured and use historical models to explore their significance.

In English, we will be using The Dark by Lemony Snicket. An empowering story about conquering your fears.

In Maths, we are using the White Rose scheme for Year 2. This will be building on knowledge learned year 1 and supporting all levels, so that every child is able to progress.

For our RE, we follow the Guildford Diocese recommended curriculum.

We will be also working on other parts of the curriculum, so that everyone has a chance to shine.

Every week the children will be given their homework on Monday, to be completed by the following Monday.

They will be given:

  • Weekly spellings to learn;
  • SPAG activities, focusing on Grammar and Punctuation, which will be sent home in their Orange homework book.
  • For Maths:

In addition, we ask for them to read for 15 minutes every day.

This is an important part of their learning and will support and reinforce their progress during the year.

Reading - Please look at the list below of recommended books to read with your child. Sharing books with them is something you can do regularly to support them in their learning.

Listen to your child read and read to them. Ask them questions about what they are reading: Do they understand all of the language? Are they following the plot developments? Can they make predictions about the progression of the story? Have they understood what's being inferred by the author?

These books are recommendations only, not compulsory!
