Year 2 2017 - 2018

Mrs Dunn

Welcome to Year 2

Your class teacher is Mrs Dunn

Our class teaching assistant is Miss Barnes and Miss Brewell & Mrs Bancroft also work in the class


Year 2 is going to be a busy and exciting year for you and your child. Year 2 will see your child grow up and mature as they take on the next steps in their learning. 

We will be focusing on reading and comprehension of what they have read - this is one of the most important skills in life and we strongly encourage a reading ethos in Year 2. We try to encourage each child to read every night at home or as often as possible. Throughout the year there are prizes, rewards, challenges and reading activities which will keep your child engaged and motivated to become a fluent and strong reader. 

In Year 2, we will be counting in 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's - by the end of the year your child should know these as times tables. Any games, practise, rote learning, activities and support you can give at home is strongly appreciated. 

Please keep a look out on the website and at the termly class newsletter to keep you updated about what exciting activities and learning is taking place in Year 2.
