Year 2

In Year 2, the children develop their independent learning approaches within a supportive and considerate environment. The Year 2 team work closely together to create a thorough curriculum that inspires children to embrace learning challenges.

We are

  • 2 Maurice - Miss Lee & Mrs Parker
  • 2 Kahlo - Miss Knight & Mrs Rose
  • 2 Klimt - Mr Ebsworth & Mrs Hinde

We are lucky to be supported by our HLTA, Mrs Cressey.

Ways to help at home

  • Practise your spellings and common exception words
  • As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
