Year 2 page

Welcome to the Year 2 taster area


We share all photos, learning links and messages on our ClassDojo platform however this page is designed to give you a taster of the topics and activities we do in school and a few activities you may wish to try at home. 


Experiences throughout our year are linked closely to problem solving, reasoning and becoming independent thinkers and learners. Children will be involved in group work led by a teacher and a teaching assistant and independent work.


Topic work is integral to the school day and classes work on English and Maths that are linked to our topics to encourage enjoyment and a deeper understanding.


In Maths, children are given many opportunities to problem solve and apply to real life situations.

Children write for a purpose in English and read a variety of texts whilst developing what they have learned through daily phonics work.


Work is planned so that all children are given work that is at their level to ensure they are making the most progress they possibly can.


To support the work we do in school we have created some activities you can do at home. These activities are to encourage your child to continue their learning that we have been doing in school.


To send us anything you have been doing or any questions, please message us on the class dojo page. Your child also has a unique profile and can upload any work or photos on this for the class teachers to see. We LOVE to see anything you do at home so please always do share this with us on this area.
