Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome to Year 2.

In Year 2 all children work in groups or individually to produce pieces of work every lesson.  All work is differentiated meaning that your child is working at their level. Everyone is expected to have a go and do their best every day.

Reading is incredibly important for your child’s progress.  We will read with your child three times a week, following the Read, Write Inc scheme of work and would appreciate you reading at home as often as you can (preferably every day) to support this.  Read, Write Inc books will be sent home and changed every Wednesday.  Children will also be given an Oxford reading Tree book which will be changed frequently in class and read alongside their Read, Write Inc books.

In English we will be reading stories and non-fiction books. We will be writing in sentences using capital letters at the beginning, finger spaces between words and full stops at the end.  Children will begin to write using adjectives and conjunctions to give more detail in their writing.  We will develop our reading skills including phonics, sight vocabulary and comprehension.  Year 2 has three handwriting sessions each week where we learn how to form letters correctly and begin to join.

In Maths we will be securing our understanding of 2 digit numbers, adding and taking away, ordering and counting forwards and backwards in 1s, 2s. 5’s and 10s.  We will begin to learn the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and explore the related division facts.  Children will learn to tell the time to the nearest 15 minutes and work with money.

We are very excited to begin our new Dimensions themed topic Curriculum where children will explore a range of topics and carry out lessons based on Geography, Science, History, PSHE and Music.  Please take a look at the themes your child will be covering each half term in the files section for Year 2.
