Year 2 Curriculum long term plan

Class Information:

  • PE – Tuesdays (Dance) and Thursdays (Hand ball skills)
  • Reading books – Reading books will be sent home in your child’s phonics folder. These texts will be matched to your child’s current phonic level. I also encourage children to borrow books from our reading corner or read books from home. We now log reading through our new Boom Reader app. If you have lost your child's log in information or are having trouble accessing the app please come and see us.
  • Phonics Folder – This needs to be in school every day. The current sound your child has been practicing will be at the front of the file. Please take time to discuss the sound and read and spell some of the words. Feel free to write on the sheet.
  • Spelling -Need to know words that are tailored individually to your child are tested on a Friday. If your child acheives 5/5 they will recieve the next set in their phonics folder.
  • Snack – money to be brought in a purse or wallet daily. This allows the children to be able to get used to what coins look like and their value. Fruit and milk are still given out daily.
  • Homework – will be set on see saw and will alternate between English and Maths. Reading and times table practice should be practiced regularly.

We love reading!

We love reading in Year 2 and we love to hear about the books your children are enjoying. In Autumn term we read many of Roald Dahls classics including the Twits (Mrs Stead loves to do the voices), Georges Marvellous Medicine and The Magic Finger. We are currently enjoying a christmasy treat from Tom Fletcher - The Christmasaurus.
