Year 2 Long Term Plan 2021-22CTA
Click the link below for important information about what we will be learning in Year 2 this half term.
The teachers in Year 2 are Mrs Wimpenny (2 White Rhinos) and Mrs Basar (2 Buffalos). The Educational Teaching Assistants working in our classes are Miss Lord and Mrs Scholey.
Below is a summary of what we will be covering in English this year. For more details on this, and to look at the other work we do in Year 2, please look at our half termly newsletters.
In Year 2 we will be looking at using different sentence types, consolidating our use of punctuation and using a range of conjunctions in our writing. We will also improve our spelling skills and ensure we are applying the spellings which we know.
In reading we will read a range of genres and complete whole class guided reading activities alongside 1-1 reading with an adult. We will focus on reading fluently, using expression and ensuring children have a range of strategies to decode any unknown words. Additionally, we will look at a variety of questions types to strengthen reading comprehension skills.
Wherever possible, we aim to link reading and writing opportunities to our topic work.
