Year 2

Welcome to Year Two

Thank you so much for all your support this half term. We are overwhelmed by the support you have shown us. 

Spring 2 is just around the corner and we have added our Newsletter on here. It is called Spring 2. It outlines what your children will be learning over the next half term (some very exciting things about DRAGONS!).

We have left on these useful websites on the homepage for you to access and added in our Oxford Owl login to the 'Reading and Writing' section.

Reading and Writing

At this age reading is very important! Year 2 children should spend 30 minutes a day reading or completing a reading activity. This could be them reading independently, reading to an adult, practising sounds and sight words, listening to stories or completing comprehension tasks.

Year 2 should try to include adjectives, conjunctions, openers and adverbs in their writing.

Spelling and Handwriting

Children should practise 10 spellings every week. Year 2 should learn the first 100 red words, then move on to the common exception words while also learning the weekly spellings from the log book. For great ideas on how to learn new spelling words click here: https://www.theschoolrun.com/teachers-tricks-make-spelling-easy 

In school the children do 10 minutes of handwriting everyday. If you wish to print the handwriting sheets and for more information on handwriting, please visit: https://www.teachhandwriting.co.uk/route-c-letter-choice-3-ks1.html .
