Year 2


Teachers: Ms Brett-Smith
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Bridge
We are a happy and friendly class who take pride in doing the best that we can, and support each other to reach our full potential.

Mornings start with us working hard in phonics. In Year 2, we are now learning a variety of spelling rules and we are trying hard to use these in our writing. We then have our English lessons and we are reading a sequence book from Traction Man called ‘Traction Man Meets Turbo Dog’. Before our favourite time of the day lunch, we also learn Maths and Guided reading.

In the afternoons we follow a creative curriculum based on a topic each half term, where we find out the answers to all of the questions we may have. During the Autumn term we have been looking at the United Kingdom and the surrounded seas and we have also learnt about Florence Nightingale.

To find out more about our class and what activities we have been undertaking on a daily basis then please take a look at the details below. This page will be regularly updated with new material so please keep checking back for new information.

We went on a trip to London Zoo to learn about lifecycles. This is a perfect place to discover how a variety of different animals, grow, develop and produce offspring. We learnt all about a butterfly's lifecycle and acted out the different stages.as well as touching real animal skins and artefacts.
