Year 2

Welcome to the spring term and a happy new year to you all. 

We are so looking forward to this term’s exciting new topic, ‘Inventors and Inventions’, and all the fun and creative activities that we have planned!

As always, we will work hard to make the most of each learning opportunity, supporting each other to be the best we possibly can be. We have no doubt that you will continue to impress us with your hard work and enthusiasm, and we can’t wait to see what you will all achieve this year.

See you soon!

Miss Harwood, Mr Brown and Miss Carmichael


Preview Learning: Week commencing 30 January 2023


We will be learning all about the properties of 3-D shapes in our maths lessons this week; counting faces, edges and vertices. Children are encouraged to identify ‘real life’ 3-D shapes in the world around them, which is a great excuse to eat an ice cream in a cone!

Should you wish to support your child at home, you can recap our learning on shape with the White Rose workbook found here

In English we will continue our work on character description, looking particularly at the work of Roald Dahl and the fantastic characters he created in his stories. Our grammar focus this week will be contractions – using apostrophes to shorten words (or a group of words), omitting certain letters or sounds. For example do not becomes don’t, and you are becomes you’re.


In our phonics lessons this week we will be learning about the plural form of words ending ‘y’, where the final letter is changed to an i before ‘es’ is added e.g. baby becomes babies. For their spellings this week, children will be asked to add the appropriate plural ending to the following words:

baby, berry, city, copy, family, lady, lolly, pony, puppy and story.

Please support your child by helping them to learn this week’s spelling pattern at home.

Mrs Skantzos’ group will be practising some of the alternative spellings for the vowel sounds a, e, i, o and u, as well as focusing on the Year 2 Common Exception Words sure, sugar, eye, could, should and would.

Miss Carmichael’s group will be revising the /oa/ sound spelled oa and ow, and the /yoo/ sound spelled ue and ew.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Harwood, Mr Brown & Miss Carmichael
