Welcome to Year 2
We are a hardworking and vibrant Year 2 class. Our class teacher is Mrs Cooper and we also work with Mrs Burnside & Mrs Harvey.
Our Curriculum & Learning
In Year 2, we focus on a different topic each half term. This topic will create an overarching theme to our learning in other subjects. We will begin each topic with a ‘hook’ lesson to trigger our imaginations and leave us ready to learn more! Topic work allows the children to make links between subjects and gain a deeper understanding.
Our English work is taught using a class stories linked to our topic. We read a different stories every half term and our English work links to the stories where possible.
Our comprehension and writing tasks link to our novel sand we complete a range of writing genre in our lessons. Our reading lessons for on developing of skills linked to film clips, novel extracts, images and we use Reading VIPERS to help us with this.
Our Maths focuses on the skills developed through White Rose Maths. We follow the block planning schedule and differentiate the lessons to meet the needs of the children. We use a variety of White Rose teaching methods throughout our lessons.
Over the course of the year, we will be developing our knowledge and understanding of fluency, reasoning and problem solving. Our learning focuses on vocabulary as well as concrete, pictorial and abstract skills to develop the understanding required for each block of work.

Superheroes and Our Super World.
We begin the year exploring our topic ‘Superheroes and Our Super World’. The children will learn about Materials in Science alongside links to other subjects. The children will be reading a novel linked to the theme of Electricity and using this to inspire our reading and writing lessons. Our Humanities work will focus on Geography for the first half term and the children will develop their understanding of the world learning about Continents, oceans, mountains and rivers. Our Design and Technology work will link to the theme of Superheroes as the children design and build balloon powered Superhero vehicles!
We begin the year with our challenge grids for homework. The children will be given a grid of suggested tasks which they are expected to complete one per week. Homework will be shared on the Class Dojo pages and children are asked to post their work on Class Dojo by a specific day each week. The tasks completed are worth different amounts of Dojos which will be rewarded in class.
Our class newsletters are sent home via email every half term. The newsletter will share important information about what we are learning in class and share any upcoming events.
