Welcome to Year 2


Your Year 2 team are Mr Keane and Mrs McKerchar.

Our PE days are Mondays and Thursdays, and we have Terrific Tuesday sessions for creative outdoor learning every other Tuesday afternoon. Don't forget to wear appropriate clothing.

Homework will be uploaded to Google Classroom on a Friday. This is to be completed in Homework books and returned for marking by the following Wednesday. Reading books will be changed twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure that children return their books and Reading Journals on these days.

Summer Term

This term our topic is 'Our Cultural World'. We will learn about the oceans and continents and then focus our attention on Africa. We will compare Africa to the U.K, specifically the climate, geography and how people live.

In Science we will learn about 'Plants' and then move on to 'Animals, Including Humans'.

In Maths, we are following the White Rose Maths Scheme of learning and will begin by completing our unit on Measurement, before going on to Fractions, then Time. followed by Statistics.

In English, we will use texts linked to our topic such as 'Claude in the City' and 'The Ugly Five' to develop our reading and writing skills. We will also write newspaper articles, recounts and non-chronological reports.

We will also continue with daily Monster Phonics sessions to help us to recognise all the phonemes and graphemes found in the English language. This will help ensure we become fluent readers and accurate spellers.
