Learning in Year 2 2023-2024

Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to Year 2.

Our Autumn theme is 'Magic at the Movies!' We will be looking at the films Ratatouille and Up!

During Autumn 2 we are focussing on the film 'UP'. In English we will be writingletters to a local care home, sharing what we have been learning at school and linking this to our Geography learning of maps to create a map to get from school to the care home. As part of our new incentive 'Agents of Change' we will be decorating pebbles with positive messages for the residents of the care home. 

Our theme topics this year will be: 

Autumn 1: Magic at the Movies - Ratatouille 

Autumn 2: Magic at the Movies- UP

Spring 1 & 2:  Power and Protest! – Little People, Big Dreams. 

Spring 2:  Power and Protest! – How to change the world. 

Summer 1 & 2:  Around the World in 80 Days. 

PE days 

Please look at your class newsletter for PE times. 

Reading and Phonics 

We follow Little Wandle Letters and Sounds, and children will continue to embed this into their reading and writing this year.  Please use your child’s reading card to show that you are reading with them at home. We ask that you read 5 times a week and tick their card to show you have done so; please ensure that your child’s books and reading card are with them in school each day.  Your child’s books will be changed on a Monday.  


As well as supporting your child at home by reading 5 times a week, please practice basic math skills such as counting backwards, forwards and across 100, adding and subtracting numbers to 100 and time – o’clock, half past and quarter to and past. If you need any advice or support with any of this, please speak to your class teacher.
