Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 web page.

Welcome back to a new term. Mrs Chorlton and Miss Mir would like to thank all parents for their support so far and we would like to wish you a successful summer, we cannot believe we are in our last half term of the year! What a year it has been.

We are continuing to eat our lunches in the classroom and having our Pizza day in the hall on Wednesdays. Children now have a choice of jacket potatoes, paninis, wraps, sandwiches or a hot dinner. They are also welcome to bring a packed lunch from home.

Year 2 P.E. will be on a Monday and Tuesday.  Please ensure children wear their P.E. kit for both days instead of their uniform.  Our P.E. kit uniform is a plain white t shirt, black shorts or jogging pants and a plain black jumper, please ensure your child is in the correct kit. 

This half-term we will be focussing on developing our reading and writing skills with a focus on handwriting and letter formation. As always we will continue to practise our 2s, 5s and 10 times tables and the division facts related to these.

Our focus text will be Lila and the Secret of Rain by David Conway. We will be using this to write our own stories of when we have been scared. 

To help your child at home please read with them every day and practise their spellings which have been set on Spelling shed.  For maths the children need to be secure with doubling and halving numbers to 10 and 20 and number bonds to 10 and 20. If you need your child's log on details please contact their class teacher who will be happy to help.

Our IPC topic this half term is Hurray for Holidays! We will be looking at how holidays have changed and designing and making our own souvenir.  In Science, we will be learning about animals including humans, finding out how to keep healthy and observing how animals grow.
