Welcome to Year 2!
These are the adults who help us with our learning.
Teaching Staff - Miss Saunders (Assistant Headteacher), Mrs Brown and Miss Snell.
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Mills and Mrs Jolly.
High Level Teaching Assistants - Mrs King and Mrs Horrex.
Our Autumn 2 Topic is:
This term we will be learning all about Nurturing Nurses! This consists of developing an awareness of the lives of significant individuals, Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements. We will enjoy pretending we are soldiers and Florence Nightingale, turning the classroom into the Scutari Hospital. We will also compare how life was different in hospitals during this time. This will also include having lots of fun designing some sloppy porridge in DT for the soldiers in ‘Scutari Hospital’.
As well as this focus on History we will focus on online safety, music and our weekly PE and PSHE sessions. The children will also be partaking in our annual Christmas Performace on Monday 12th December.

Miss Saunders' and Mrs Brown's PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.

Spellings will be tested on a Monday and new spellings given out on the Tuesday.
Home learning is due back into school on a Thursday. Please ensure your child brings their home learning book back each week so that we can check which task they have completed. We will send home learning books back out on a Friday.
How can you help your child at home?
Reading at home
How can you help your child with reading at home?
We hope that you are able to read with your child as regularly as possible and record any comments in their yellow log. Also encouraging your child to take part in our reading challenges.
Maths at home
In Year 2 we spend time practising addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and missing number problems. At home you could support your child by giving them various calculation sentences. Find an example of arithmetic papers on our home learning page. This is what your child will practise in school.
By the end of Year 2 we aim for children to be secure with their 2x, 5x and 10x tables. You could use these websites below to practise these.
You could also use mathletics to practise all other areas of maths!
We build on the phonics learning your child has learnt in Year 1. You could use the websites below to practise their phonemes.
