Year 2

Welcome to Owls Class.

Our Year 2 class is called ‘Owls’. Our teacher is Miss Smythe and our teaching assistants are called Ms Waby and Mrs Philips. We have an outdoor area, which is attached to our classroom. We use this to extend our learning. Our classroom is bright and well-resourced.

We enjoy literacy, numeracy and phonics lessons every day. Our other subjects are taught through topics. This year, our topics are 'Fabulous and Famous', 'Fire and Ice', 'Amazing Animals' and 'Under the Sea.  For special occasions, we work with year 1 (Rabbits) on joint activities. We enjoyed working with Rabbits class for our Guy Fawkes day in November.

We have a PE lesson once a week and a swimming lesson every Monday. We are encouraged to read with an adult at least 4 times a week at home. We have learning logs and phonic challenges for our homework. For our learning logs, we are given an open-ended question to answer. We can answer this in whichever way we choose – writing, drawing, model making etc. For our phonic challenges, we are given a phoneme (sound) each week. We have to write words and sentences with that phoneme in. We also have some key words to learn each week. Below is our maths strategies booklet which shows you how we are taught at school so that you can support us at home.
