Year 2

Our teachers are Miss Dowie, Miss Boniface and Mrs Hughes.

Mrs Dasgupta works alongside and supports all the Year Two teachers.



The teaching of reading is a very important part of our Key Stage One curriculum and we teach reading skills daily.


In Year Two we try to organise our Reading Programme to make it as simple as possible for both parents and children. We follow on from the reading,phonics and spelling work that the Year One teachers have put in place, to ensure progression and to make it an easy transition for us all!


Your child has been given a reading book and a Reading Record. We have chosen the books with the children and liaised with Year One staff to try and ensure your child has an appropriate book. Please comment in the Reading Record and let us know how your child got on so we can change books accordingly.


Please come and ask us if you have any questions about the way we organise reading in Year Two.


Bug Club

This term we are launching our new online reading programme. Your child has been given their log-in details and we know lots of you have already accessed the eBooks. We aim to allocate at least 1 eBook for each child per week this term. We are sure this new way of reading will motivate the children to keep reading!



Both 2D and 2B will have PE on a Monday.

Please ensure that all children have kits in school and plimsolls that fit.



Both 2D and 2B will have their library session on Thursday.


Homework and Spellings

Homework is given out Friday and needs to be returned by Wednesday. A letter covering homework and spelling arrangements is included in the homework book.

The children will have a weekly spelling test on a Friday. The spellings will be sent home on a sheet which will include your child's previous spelling results.


Thank you for your continued support.
