The teachers in Year 2 are Miss Riley (2 Peacocks) and Mrs Howey (2 Partridges). The Educational Teaching Assistants working in our classes are Mrs Norfolk, Mrs Grayston and Mrs Macdonald.
In Year 2, the children have a lot more responsibility and work more independently. As the oldest in KS1, they should set an example to the younger children.
Below is a summary of what we will be covering in English each half term. For more details on this, and to look at the other work we do in Year 2, please look at our half termly newsletter.
This half term in writing we will looking at using different sentence types, consolidating our use of punctuation and using a range of conjunctions in our writing. We will also improve our spelling skills and ensure we are applying the spellings which we know.
In reading we will continue to read a range of genres. We will focus on reading fluently, using expression and ensuring children have a range of strategies to decode any unknown words. We will also be developing our comprehension skills through weekly comprehension tasks.
Wherever possible, we aim to link reading and writing opportunities to our topic work.
