Year 2 Curriculum Overview

Please remember to read a book with your child for at least 5 - 10 minutes every night and sign your child’s reading diary.

Each Friday, your child will get spellings to revise at home for a spelling test the following Friday.

Please send your child in their PE kit on the days they do PE, Wednesday and Friday. PE kit is a plain white t-shirt with blue or black shorts. Plain black or blue tracksuit bottoms may be worn in the winter.

Please also provide your child with a water bottle to bring to school each day.

We have been on a fantastic enrichment day to Knowsley Safari Park this term. Not only did we go on a safari drive where we got to see camels, rhinoceros and wildebeest, but we also enjoyed our lunch whilst watching the sea lions perform for us. It was very exciting! We also put on our detective hats for a Discovery Workshop where we investigated clues to solve the mystery.
Y2K also managed to see the amazing Birds of Prey display where we saw haws, owls and a vulture!

In English, we are continuing to build stamina in writing and we have worked hard to engage our audience by including conjunctions, adverbs, different sentence openers and contractions.

We had a very exciting visit from Ged who works at the Bat Conservation Trust! He taught us lots of facts about bats and we amazed him with our knowledge of nocturnal animals. We had a lot of fun writing about our experience, especially because Ged showed us a real life pipistrelle bat he'd brought with him!

The stories we have been reading and writing about this term are I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen and You Must Bring a Hat by Simon Philip and Kate Hindley.
