Welcome to Year 2!
Information about our class:
Our teacher is Miss Haley and our teaching assistant is Miss Hogan. Mrs Iddison teaches our class on a Thursday afternoon.
In Year Two, our faith in God is at the heart of everything we do. We believe that everyone is special and unique and strive to develop children’s talents to achieve their highest potential. We aim for our children to become confident, resilient learners and develop the skills they need for lifelong learning whilst inspiring them to be kind and caring members of the community.
We have 30 children in our class and we are always very busy.
A typical morning in Year 2 consists of phonics/spelling rules, English, handwriting, and maths.
In the afternoon, we study other subjects including RE (Religious education), science, geography, history, PE, computing, art, design and technology and music.
Prayer is an important part of our day in Year Two. We enjoy taking part in a Worship, including daily Class Worships, a weekly Virtues Collective Worship on a Wednesday and Key Stage One Worship on a Thursday. Through listening to messages from the Gospels, we learn and grow in our Catholic faith.
We welcome parents as partners in your child’s education and are very grateful for your invaluable support. If you have any concerns or questions, please make an appointment via the office to discuss these with us.
Homework is sent out on a Friday and should be completed by the following Friday.
We encourage every child to regularly use TT Rock stars to practise their times tables (20 minutes per week). You will find the login details for this on the front of the yellow reading record.
Reading books are changed twice a week and we encourage children to read widely and often at home every day with discussion and questions using the VIPERS booklet.
Please ensure your child brings a labelled water bottle into school with them every day.
PE is on a Tuesday and Wednesday in Autumn 1. Please send your child to school on these days in their PE kits.

Supporting your learning in Year 2
Please practise the spellings and vocabulary on the overviews sent out each half term.
This year the children will continue to learn how to write in cursive. In school we follow the Teach Handwriting approach to forming cursive letters. Please find below the link for the website.
It is important that you read a variety of different texts regularly, ideally every day, to develop your vocabulary and your general knowledge. Please also continue to read the online books which are available on Oxford Owl.
Use the FANTASTICS symbols to gather a range of ideas before you start your writing.
