Year 2

Hello and welcome to Year 2

The class teacher is Mrs Dent and the class is supported by Mrs Russell and Mrs Williams.

Year 2 is an exciting year as the children grow in confidence and become independent learners.

In Year 2 we aim to extend children’s knowledge and enrich the curriculum by learning through enjoyment. We will be learning about lots of exciting things; including:

  • The Great Fire of London
  • Pointillism artwork
  • The Great Plague
  • Traditional Tales

This year, in school, we are focusing on reading and spelling. We will read a range of texts and learn lots of new vocabulary.

Please find below  a great reading list for year 2. This can also be found in your child’s homelearning book.

Brilliant Book List Y2

We encourage children to work hard at school and home, to prepare them for the end of Key Stage SATs and transition into Key Stage 2. We have lots of fun and enjoy learning  new things!
