Important Year 2 Information
Welcome to Year 2!

All children have a school reading book. It is best if your child can bring his/her reading book to school everyday, preferably in a book bag to keep it clean and dry. Children can change their reading book as soon as they have finished their book, as long as their reading record has been signed by an adult who has heard them read. I would hope that children are changing their books at least twice a week and we have a motivational scheme in place to encourage reading at home.
Spellings will be given out on Mondays. These words will be tested the following Monday. The spellings follow the recommended spellings in the English National Curriculum. Children are also expected to know how to read and spell common exception words for year 1 & 2. Links to these can be found towards the bottom of the page.
Children in Year 2 have P.E. on Mondays and Thursdays. We follow the Real PE scheme and children have all been given log-ins so that they can access Real PE at home (see link at the bottom of the page). Details of the correct PE kit can be found elsewhere on the website. Children can leave their kits in school – we will send them home at each holiday period so you can wash them.
In our English lessons, we will be exploring the book ‘The Story Machine’. We will be getting creative and reinventing our own machine and explaining how it can be used. We will be continuing to focus on our punctuation, using third/first person, past tense, conjunctions and expanded noun phrases.
We will be consolidating our learning of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be learn about measuring mass and fractions. Alongside this, we will continue to work hard to develop our fluency of 2x, 5x & 10x tables.
Our unit this term is ‘Animals Including Humans’. The children will be learning that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults. They will find out about the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival and explore the importance for humans of exercise, eating the right food, and hygiene.
We are exploring the unit: Easter. How do symbols help us to understand the story.
Children will be extending their knowledge of the Easter story, and learning more about why Easter matters to Christians.
Our topic this term is ‘Has St George’s Always Been in Shaw?’ We will be looking at historic sources and comparing them to what Shaw is like in the present.
