Year 2 2022 - 2023

Welcome to our summer term! We are very excited to see the children back in school for what will hopefully be a fun and sunny few months! We have lots of exciting things planned starting with our trip to the Liverpool World Museum. We will also be visiting Delamere forest on the train, taking part in sports day and our whole school music afternoon and undertaking Special Agent Training (known as SATs to some). We aim to take lots of our learning outside during the summer term so please make sure your child has suncream applied and brings a hat to wear on sunny days. However, since this is England, we still ask that they bring a coat to school so that we are prepared for those inevitable rainy moments.


In our English lessons, we are starting with the book The Last Wolf by Mini Gray (who was also the source of inspiration for our Greatest Show exhibsition earler in the year). We are sure that the children will be exctied to be looking at more of her books. 


In our maths lessons, we will be recapping everything the children have learnt this year and giving them the opportunity to apply their new knowledge by tackling reasoning and problem solving tasks. We will continue to work on developing fluent recall of number bonds and times tables. We do ask that children use Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots at home to help support with this - please see your class teaher if you have any problems with this. 


In science, we will be learning about how to keep ourselves healthy. In Geography, we will be learning about Canada and in our history we will finding out all about the Great Fire Of London.


We will have two PE lessons a week. We will be swimming on Wednesday afternoons - children will need to come to school in PE kit that they can easily change in and out of such as loose jogging bottoms. We will be walking to and from Brio for these lessons. We will do outdoor PE on Thursday afternoons.


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.

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!
