Welcome to our Year Two class page. Here you will find all the information about our class and the year ahead including our weekly timetable with our daily routines, curriculum overviews and homework. For more information about what is taught in Year Two, you might also want to have a look at the curriculum pages of the website. 

If you have a child in Year Two, we will be uploading snap shots of our learning onto Seesaw. So keep checking in when you can ?

We love to learn and read in Year 2, I am passionate about books and love our daily read aloud sessions which we share together after lunch as a class.  Year Two will be exploring a beautiful collection of fiction texts and poetry this half term. The children will have the opportunity to choose which book we will be reading next.

Reading for pleasure is very important in Year Two, there is nothing better than becoming lost in a wonderful book. All the children are encouraged to read across the curriculum and at every opportunity. This term we have whole class shared reading every Wedensday morning and guided reading Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. Please make sure reading records are brought into school every day.
