Year 2



Welcome to Year 2!

Our class teacher is Mrs Swift and our teaching assistant is Mrs Yardley 

Our topic for this half term is Explorers!

In English we are starting with a grammar focus and then moving onto the  book, “The Pirates Next Door” by Johnny Duddle. We will build up to planning and writing their own narratives based on the text. As well as this, the children will be looking at the features of Non-Chronological Reports and writing their own including the features we have learnt.  

In maths we are continuing to build and extend our ever developing skills set through practical and problem solving approaches. 

We are really looking forward to our new school year together so keep checking back for updates and pictures of what we have been up to in

Year 2!

Phonics at Home


In Year 2 we focus on recognising and using Phase 5 & 6 Phonics, click the link below for the sounds that your child will be learning in order to support them at home. 





We went to Hesketh Bank Christian Centre to The Narnia Experience.

What a fabulous first few weeks we have had in Year 2!

We have investigated lots of maths concepts practically, visited the woods and even had a pirate and an explorer or two come to visit! 



Exploring Artefacts!

Today in Year 2 we have had a fabulous time exploring artefacts that we have borrowed from our Museum Loan Service. The children were encouraged to ask questions, make observations and investiagte the resources that we had in class.
