Year 2

A very warm welcome from Miss Emily Davey

Welcome to Year 2! The children are now the oldest in the ‘Infants’ and this year they will develop their leadership skills and learn to be role models for the younger children in our school. They will continue to learn through exploration and discovery, taking more ownership of their learning and depth of challenge.

I look forward to working with parents to help the children to achieve their full potential in all areas.

Year Of Hope

Mathematics

There are eight areas of study: number and place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, properties of shapes, position and direction, and statistics.

Children in Year 2 need to be confident with number bonds to 10 and 20, and to recognise the position of the first 100 numbers on a hundred square. They should also be able to visualise the 100 square in their heads. Children will be encouraged to reason and articulate how they arrived at an answer or solved a problem. Mental maths should be practised daily.

English

Reading

Every child will have a Home Reading Record Book. They will be heard read at least once a week on a specified day in a guided reading group. They will take one reading book home to support their learning as well as free-choice of library books for you to share and read to them. Please remember to sign the Reading Record Book and add any comments.

Spelling

Children will be given weekly spellings to learn.

Handwriting

Children will continue to use the lead in stroke and develop their cursive writing.
