Our love of Learning Leads us to Excellence

Year 2 

Welcome to Year 2!

 

Your teachers are Miss Drayton, Pat and Jean.

School Dinners

All the children in Year 2 are entitled to a school meal every day. 

P.ELessons

P.E. lessons will be on Wednesdays every week. Please make sure your child comes to school on a Wednesday wearing their P.E. kit. 

Spellings 

Spellings will be given out on Thursdays and will need to be learned for a test the following Thursday.  
 
Collins Little Wandle e-books, home readers and Library Books

Some children will be allocated a weekly e-book that can be accessed via the Collins website. 

https://ebooks.collinsopenpage.com 

This will be at the correct phonic stage for your child: this book is matched to the letters and sounds that your child can rapidly recall and blend together. Your child should be able to read this fluently and independently.   

The school’s expectation is that your child reads this book three times over the week.

If you are trying access these books via a phone or i-Pad, you may need to download the e-books app.  

Other children will be given a 'home reader' which can be changed as often as is needed. This is for children who can read fluently.   

The children will also get the chance to choose a book from the school Library once a week. This book is a ‘reading for pleasure’ book and should be shared with an adult at home.  

Phonics

In Key Stage 1 children continue to be taught phonics using Little Wandle Letters and Sounds, Revised. Listed below are some useful resources.

Art in Year 2

In the Autumn term Year 2 have worked on using using a water colour wash and silhouette foreground to create artwork inspired by our history work on The Great Fire of London. 

 

In the Spring term we have been working on creating artwork in the style of Henri Rousseau.  

Geography in Year 2

In the Spring term Year 2 have been learning about the hot and cold places of the world.  Most recently, we looked at the human features of Birmingham and compared them to the Arctic city of Nuuk in Greenland.
