Welcome to Year 2
Our teacher in Year 2 is Miss Stokes. We are very lucky in Year 2 to have two fantastic Teaching Assistants, Miss Smith and Miss Harden. We do lots of fun, exciting things in Year 2 which incorporate all aspects of the curriculum. Please look on our blog to see what we have been doing.
We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.

We will have a meeting for parents in the Spring term to introduce and cover all of the above sections. More importantly we will be able to look at examples of Year 2 SATs papers.
Year 2 Curriculum Overview
Our first Topic in Year 2 is 'Famous People'. We will be covering lots of History objectives and learning about people from the past. We will be exploring Florence Nightingale's life and finding out about why Grace Darling is still remembered today. The highlight of our Topic will be our Famous People day. This is when each child is able to present their Learning Log to the rest of the class. More information will be provided to parents nearer to the time.
Our Class Novel
Our Reading focus for the first half term will be sharing stories as a class. We will be listening to stories, predicting what might happen and sharing our opinions backed up by evidence from the text.
