Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Miss Harwood, Mr Brown and Miss Carmichael would like to welcome you to Year 2.

Year 2 is a great year, full of new experiences and big achievements, and we feel lucky to be sharing this part of your learning journey with you.

It can be a little daunting beginning a new school year but don’t worry, we are here to help you settle back in. Please come and talk to us if you do have any worries or if there is anything you are unsure about.

We are so happy to be welcoming you back to school and we’re really looking forward to getting to know you all a bit better. We’ll work hard together, learn lots of new things, and most importantly we’ll have plenty of fun!

See you soon,

Miss Harwood, Mr Brown and Miss Carmichael

 


Preview Learning week commencing 26 September 2022

Maths

In this week’s maths lessons we will continue to practise partitioning two-digit numbers to help secure the children’s understanding of place value. We will also build on last week’s work with number lines, this time counting in tens and ones up to 100 to identify patterns and missing numbers.

English

In English we will look at extending our writing through the use of compound sentences. These are sentences made up of two parts or ‘clauses’, joined with a conjunction such as or, and or but, for example…

Would you like to go to the park or would you prefer to go swimming?

My favourite animal is an elephant and I also like pandas too.

We wanted to play outside but it was raining.

Phonics

In our phonics lessons this week Miss Harwood and Mr Brown’s group will be revising the /j/ sound and its alternative spellings, plus the /ul/ sound and its alternative spellings (please see children’s phonics folders for more information on these spellings.)

Miss Carmichael’s group will be revising the sounds /sh/, /th/ and /ng/.

Please note that all phonics work will be completed in class, so there is no need to complete the phonics sheets at home – these are for reference and practice only.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Harwood, Mr Brown & Miss Carmichael
