In Year Two we have fun exploring many new things and we enjoy being active, confident learners.

We have English and Maths each day and an exciting range of Topic, Computing, PE, RE and
Science lessons each week.




In Year Two we encourage the children to read every day or at least three times a week. The home school reading books must come into school daily. The children have the opportunity to change their reading book every day and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school.  We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read.  In addition, the children have an opportunity to receive certificates for the amount of times they read at home as part of our new Race to Read challenge!


We are also introducing ERIC TIME (Everyone Reads In Class) across the school.  ERIC Time will happen every Friday afternoon for ten minutes. The aim is to encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading. All children and adults in class will be reading at this time.
