Important information

PE days this half term are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on these days.
The teachers in Year 2 are Miss Riley (2 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 which will begin in Autumn 1.

English

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.

Maths objectives for Year 2:

In our maths lessons, we will be covering many different areas such as:

  • Interpreting and reading scales
  • Measuring (capacity, length and mass)
  • Column method for addition with carrying  and subtraction with borrowing.
  • Place value.
  • 2D and 3D shape – identifying shapes and describing their properties (vertices, edges, faces)
  • Data handling (pictograms, bar charts, venn and carroll diagrams)
  • Money – writing and reading amounts, conversion of pence to pounds, calculating change
  • Lines of symmetry
  • Position and direction (left, right, forwards, backwards)
  • Solving two step problems
  • Rounding to the nearest ten and nearest hundred
  • Telling the time

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
