Year 2 2022 - 2023

Welcome Back! We are really looking forward to getting to know all of our new pupils. Get ready for some super stories, terrific topics and amazing adventures!


In our English lessons we will read the story Troll Swap by Leigh Hodgkinson. It is all about being yourself and is very funny too. Are you a Tabitha - as loud as a foghorn or kind and polite like Timothy? 


In our maths lessons we will be making sure we know the values of two digit numbers - reading and writing them as well as ordering. We will work on number bonds and start to add and subtract numbers. We start by adding single digit numbers, move on to adding and subtracting 10s to and from numbers.


We will study the life of Amelia Earhart in our history lessons. In geography our focus is the United Kingdom and we look in detail at Northern Ireland and The Giant's Causeway. Our art and DT follow these topics. In Science we are learning about plants.


We will have two PE lessons a week - days to be confirmed. One outdoor lesson so please make sure children wear a clothes that are suitable for the weather! We will also have a hall time. On both days children should come into school in their PE clothes and stay in them all day. Please try and make sure girls have hair tied back on these days.  


Reading is our main form of homework in Year 2 and we expect children to read at least four times a week. We have daily reading lessons and will continue with a weekly written comprehension. Children will be sent home with two reading books – a reading book matched to their phonic ability and a library book. Please continue to record the reading books using the Go Read App.


Times Tables Rock Stars is our maths homework and children have been issued with their log in details. It is quite fast-paced so try to support your children when you can. Please don’t give up!


This year we will continue to focus on positivity as a whole school.  Each week there will be an exciting new theme, a focus quote and a song!  Watch out for the school newsletter to find out more!
