Welcome to Year 2

 

Welcome to year 2. This is an exciting year in your child's education. This year's work is all about consolidating the knowledge that we have been learning in key stage one. 

 

We are going to explore a variety of topics throughout the year. Our learning will explore the UK, The Plague, the Great Fire of London and lots in-between.  We will also be working on our maths skills using a number of functions to complete sums and expand our mathematical reasoning and numeracy skills.  

 

In reading, there will be a continuation of their phonetic understanding and moving from blending to read words to recognising words by sight. We're also moving towards a bigger focus on grammar, punctuation and spelling, so lots of reading at home will support this. There is a lot of work to be done, but the year is packed full of exciting things to discover before moving on to key stage 2.

We have been learning about Materials! Which Material do you think made the best bridge?
