Year 2

Welcome to Year Two!


This half term we will be learning about people and places that are important to us. We will be finding out about the Pope as part of our RE and Faith week and looking at Italy and Rome in Geography. Later in the half term we hope to celebrate all the different countries represented in our beautiful and brilliant class. We will also have time to reflect on the wonderful year we have together and begin to prepare for the transition into Year Three!


To support your child's learning in Maths at home:


  • The 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables and related division facts
  • Using money and recognising coins
  • Telling the time


To support your child's learning in English:


Please read with them every night, taking time to discuss what the story was about. Books from the library, other story books, picture books, newspapers, magazines and comics are all excellent reading materials and also provide children with the opportunity to experience different ways of writing and sharing information and also provides an alternative to their school reading book.
