Year 2 2021 - 2022

Miss Hornby

Mrs Rosson

Welcome to Year Two

Hello everyone,

Sending you all a warm welcome to the wonderful world of Year Two! This year your child's class Teachers are myself (Miss Hornby) and the lovely Mrs Rosson who you will see on a Tuesday afternoon and Thursday. Our fabulous teaching assistants Mrs Thomas, Miss Wishart and Ms Gallacher will be on hand at various times throughout the week to support your child and their learning. We all can't wait to get stuck in with the busy year ahead and welcome your children back to school in September feeling refreshed and ready to learn. 

This year is set to be VERY exciting as we embark on our continuous provision journey throughout both of our KS1 classrooms. You can find out more by following this link: A Parents Guide to Continuous Provision in KS1.

If you have any queries or concerns at any point throughout the year please do not hesitate to contact me via email a.hornby@buglawton.cheshire.sch.uk or pop a note inside your child's planner and a member of the Year Two team will respond appropriately. 

I look forward to seeing you all very soon but in the meantime enjoy exploring a little sneak peek of what Year Two has in store for you and your child... Meet the Teacher

Take care and happy holidays!

Autumn Term 2

In our Literacy sessions this half term we will be exploring the features and structure of non-chronological report's whilst developing our skills to create a report of our favourite tropical island animal featured in our class text 'Grandad's Island'. As we approach Christmas time we will also be diving into some wonderful shape poetry!

Our children will become Scientists through the continuation of our 'living things and their habitats' study. As part of this study children will learn all about food chains. Our scientific journey will then take us to discover more about 'animals including humans' where we will learn all about basic needs and survival.

As we progress through the term our children will continue to develop their Historical skills through the exploration of the life and achievements of Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell and how their work impacted nursing today. 

We will become Artists and Designers as we continue to develop the skills and knowledge required to complete a textile project. 

To become Mathematicians this term we will explore Addition and Subtraction and Money.

Autumn Term 1

In our Literacy sessions this term we will be exploring setting and character descriptions using the text 'Grandad's Island' as our hook and inspiration. We will have a big focus on letter formation and sentence structure to ensure our children have the best foundations for writing in Year Two.

It would be great if you could discuss your child's 'real-life hero' with them over the summer holiday's.

Grandads Island

Our children will become Scientists through our 'living things and their habitats'. As part of this study children will learn all about animal habitats and food chains. We will also be participating in a very exciting trip to support this learning - keep your eyes peeled for more information!

As we progress through the term our children will become Historians through the exploration of the life and achievements of Florence Nightingale as part of our 'significant individuals' study.

Spellings

In Year 2 children will continue to use the Spelling Shed scheme to help learn their spellings. The children will be given a username and password that you can find inside their planner. This app can be downloaded at home on a tablet, phone, or accessed via the website. Children can practise their weekly assigned spellings through a variety of games. The children's efforts and progress is trackable, and they enter a 'Super League' of spellers, both within our school and the country!

Year 2 PE 

PE will take place every Thursday afternoon with Mrs Rosson and Friday afternoon with our Bee Active team. On these days, children should come into school wearing the correct kit. No other change of clothes is necessary. 

Home Learning

We would love for all children to read at home with a grown up for a minimum of 10 minutes per day. You can choose to read a range of different texts from your school reading books, newspapers, magazines or your favourite bedtime story. All books read at home can be recorded in your planners.
