This year in Year 2 we are looking at a range of topics, including Jamaica, The First Flight, Animals around the World, Castles and Seasons.
Reading is something we love to do and we really hope you can share this experience with your child. We ask you to listen to your child read daily and write a note in their diary to let the teacher know how they got on.
In Year 2, P.E is taught on a Monday and Tuesday each week. It is very important that each child brings their own P.E kit (shorts, t-shirt, jogging bottoms (for outdoor sessions) and plimsolls or trainers) and keeps this in school each half term.

Key Stage 1 phonics
Please note the school uses the Letters and Sounds scheme to teach reading and phonics across key stage one. Letters and Sounds provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching phonics. As a school, we are using this approach with the aim to promote fluency in speaking, reading and writing.
For more information about the Key Stage 1 curriculum, please contact Miss Eyre (Key Stage 1 leader).
