Learning in Year 2 2022-2023

Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to Year 2. This term we have some exciting learning around the theme 'Power and Protest!' 

We will be looking at the Little People, Big Dreams book series exploring the lives of many influential people, as well as Look Up! by Nathan Bryon, focusing on Mae Jemison.  


Our theme topics this year will be: 

Autumn 1: Power and Protest! – Little People, Big Dreams. 

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

Spring 1 & 2: Magic at the Movies. 

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


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.
