Year 2 Information
Please download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 2. You may also wish to take a look at the Y2 Curriculum Overview 2017-18 (below), which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. Please do talk to us if you would like more information.
We are keen for parents to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help you do this, we produce a termly information sheet, outlining our main topics and giving suggestions for how you might follow them up at home:
No Nonsense Numbers
Phonics At Home.
As part of your home learning your child will be taking part in phonic activities set by their teacher. Many of you may have used Oxford Owl as it gives levelled reading books. The link below will also give you a video to show you how to make the sounds in a way that will help your child with reading and writing. The sounds are taught in a particular order in phases which develop during Reception and KS1. If you are unsure which phase your child is working on at the moment then please contact your child’s class teacher.
You don’t need to print out lots of flash cards or letters, just make your own or ask older brothers and sisters to help you.
There are lots of fun activities that you can do indoors and in the garden, hiding sounds so that your child can go on a treasure hunt, having competitions to see how many words you can make with a sound your child finds tricky or being sound detectives on your daily walk. Have fun together!
We’ve been inspired by illustrator Lauren Child to make our own fairy tale boxes in a collage style. It’s been lots of fun creating our rooms!
We have enjoyed our geography topic learning all about the UK. We used atlases to find countries, capitals and other cities and created our own maps too.
As part of our Science learning, year 2 have grouped and sorted things they found on a plant hunt. We also grew our own beans, observing how they changed over time.
Plant Charcoal Drawings
Year 2 were asked to make charcoal sketching’s of a flower. This was linked to our Science unit on plants.
High Street Maps
Year 2 were given the task of creating a map of the high street linked to our Autumn 1 high street topic.
