In Year 2 we have 24 fantastic, enthusiastic children and we love to be creative and have fun with our learning.We encourage and support children to become more independent and it is always amazing to see how much they progress and grow in confidence throughout the year.
Our teaching team this year is Miss Musgrove, Mrs Meredith and Mrs Duery

Children should read/be read to daily for 20 mins, this should be recorded in their reading records. You’ll be amazed at how much progress they make! Children will have their books for a week before taking their quizzes and receiving a book to match their reading comprehension. Asking questions about what has been read will show you if your child has understood the story/text.
You can get access to free online audiobooks here: Sooper Books
Things to remember...
Children should read at home a minimum of 4 times a week and this should be recorded in their reading record.
Children will start the year reading decodable phonics books which are matched to our Phonics Scheme, Little Wandle. As they progress through the year, they will work through the Accelerated Reader Programme which helps develop their comprehension. They complete a comprehension quiz on the book they have read and then can choose another book from the school library.
We have weekly PE lessons and PE kits should be left in school and should contain kit appropriate for both indoor and outdoor lessons.
We also have weeklyOutdoor Learning which gives the children a chance to spend time learning in our fantastic outdoor environment. Appropriate warm, wet weather clothing should be brought in during winter months.
Children are encouraged to play Number Bots at home to help them develop their Maths skills and there are many certificates to collect as they work through the Number Bots levels.
