Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!
We are all really excited to be back in the classroom with the children and are looking forward to supporting the children through this year. We are continuing to plan using learning menus similar to those used during lockdown.  We will update this weekly to enable your child's learning to continue at home should they be unable to be at school due needing to isolate.
The learning featured will be similar to what we will be doing in school so we can make sure the children are staying up to date with the learning covered which will help to prevent gaps in the children's progress. 
Here is a link to our parent information talk.

The two classes in Year 2 are, Whales and Dolphins


In Whales our teachers are Mrs Parrish (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Allum (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)

 Mrs. Abbott is our TA and Miss Shaw works in our class during Thursday afternoon and also with Premier Sports on a Friday afternoon. Mrs Eldred will also be running Forest Schools with 15 children on a Tuesday afternoon, the children will change after half term.


In Dolphins Mr Glover is the teacher and Mrs. Ling is our TA. Miss Shaw and Premier Sports work in the class on Friday afternoons. Premier Sports will also be working with 15 children on a Tuesday afternoon, the children will change after half term. 






This term we will be learning about the history of our local area, the Dales, they will research and use maps to help them discover what used to be here. We love this term as we always discover new things alongside the children.
We usually go for a walk around the Dale but this year we are excited to make our first virtual tour of the local area and will be asking the children to see what they can spot too. 
The children will have role play areas in the classroom linked to the topic too where they can develop their creativity. 
We have another exciting Power of Reading text we will be reading but we can't tell you what it's called yet, you will have to watch this space for the reveal! Our English will be linked to the text too as will lots of other subjects. 
You will find our Medium Term plans below along with our parent leaflet which has even more information.
