Classes

I am able. Corinthians 9:8

 

Welcome to our Year 2 class. Miss Smith is the class teacher and Mrs Bamford and Mrs Broughton are the Teaching Assistants.

We aim to create a fun, challenging classroom environment that allows children to shine and excel. Children are encouraged to become resilient, independent learners who develop a passion for their education.

 

R.E

In R.E this half term, we are focusing on signs and symbols in the Catholic faith. We will also be looking at another faith called Judaism.

Reading

Reading is an essential area of your child’s learning which can improve all areas of the curriculum. We aim to develop the children into becoming confident and independent readers. We encourage the children to read every night. Books will be changed once a week and we ask that you sign their reading record and a member of the teaching staff in Year 2 will also do this. We encourage parents and guardians to ask the children lots of questions about the book they are reading to develop their comprehension skills.

Spellings and times table

Spellings will be given out on a Friday with the children being tested on them the following Friday. We encourage lots of practice at home and the children will be given opportunities to practice within school time. Each week, the children will be challenged with a times table quiz. Currently, we are focusing on our 2 times table and we encourage children to practice at home. Your child also has a log in to TT Rockstars to complete online challenges encouraging their multiplication and division skills. 

Christmas Production

This years performance is called, 'Lights, Camel, Action'. It is a very entertaining production full of songs, dance and lots of funny jokes too. Please make sure that if your child has words to say they are practicing them every night.  Thank you for your continued support. 

For further information about what your child will be learning in Autumn 2 please look below.  

We are amazing!

We had one of our class worships in our brand new Faith Hub. We thought how we are connected to God.

Year 2 did some super science work. We investigated our local habitat in search of mini-beasts.

In history we have been learning all about Remembrance Day and why we wear a poppy. During art and DT we have created a War Memorial.
