Year 2

 
Welcome to the Year 2 page!

Take a look at our lovely Harbour, Lighthouse and Pier classrooms!

Our first topic this term is centred around Oliver Jeffers' beautiful 'Here We Are' book. We will be focusing on the children as individuals and exploring how our classes and school are communities. In Science and PSHE, we will be learning about how to care for our environment and surroundings and how to stay healthy and safe too. As part of our work about where we are in the world, we will be studying the geography of our local area as well naming and locating the world's seven continents and five oceans. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email via the school office or face to face when collecting your child.

Additional Information:

 Reading

Encouraging a love of reading is the single most important contribution you can make to your child's educational development at this stage.  We ask that you and your child read four times each week. 

Spellings

A list of the Year 1 and 2 common exception words that your child is expected to read and write by the end of year can be found here.

Mental Maths

You can help your child by helping them to count in multiples of 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s and by practising number facts up to 10 and 20 (e.g. 8+2=10, 2+3=5, 8-6=2) 

There are also some great websites for supporting our work in class on number patterns and facts. Click here for a caterpillar ordering game where you can sequence number patterns. Click here for a great game for practising number bonds!
