Year 2 Information

Summer Term

We are keen for parents to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help with this we produce Topic Overviews for each term outlining our main topics.

Please download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 2. You may also wish to take a look at the Y2 Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. Please talk to us if you would like more information.

No Nonsense Facts

Purple Mash

We are delighted to tell you that we have now set up Class Blogs on Purple Mash for each class in Year 1 to Year 6. Children can now share, with their teacher and classmates, some of the wonderful things they have been doing at home. Teachers will check their Class Blogs once a day. All posts and comments need to be ‘approved’ by the class teacher before they can be seen ‘live’ by other members of the class. The blogs have been set up so that they are only accessible by the class teacher and members of the class. Please see the attachment for some simple instructions on how to access and post information onto the Class Blog. We are looking forward to sharing work and finding out what you have been doing at home.

Journey Stories

Year 2 have had an exciting half term in English making up their own journey stories based on ‘ The way back home’ . We looked at a range of journey stories and found what the features were of this type of story .The children learnt what an expanded noun phrase was and then used these to describe the characters they had made up for their own stories. They learnt the story map off by heart and added actions, which they loved performing . The children then became authors and wrote their own story using their new story map and new characters.
