Welcome to Year 2


Welcome to Year 2 and the Autumn Term 

MrRosell Hughes, Miss Wilson and Miss Hooker are the class teachers in Year 2. Mrs Coates (Learning support) will be working across both classes.  

Autumn Term: Heroism 

This autumn term in Y2, we are exploring the theme of HEROISM, both as what heroism means and how we can recognise this in others. 

Our Autumn Bookshelf: 

  • Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs 
  • How to be a Hero 
  • Grandad’s Island
  • Great Women who made History
  • Fantastic Mr Fox 
  • Billy and the Beast 

We will be creating character and setting descriptions using adjectives and adverbs as well as retelling some of the stories and using story maps to help us bring the stories to life. We will be looking at how we can be heroes and that not all heroes wear capes!  We will set a kindness challenge and see how many heroic deeds we can complete in the school day and across our community.  There will be lots of opportunities to be creative in art, music, science, PE and other areas of the curriculum. 

Important Information  

School reading books will be changed weekly at the start and end of the week. 

We are timetabled to have PE every Tuesday and Friday, but please have both your indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day, as plans may change! 

Home Learning and Spellings are sent home on a Wednesday, due for the following Monday. 

Keep up with our summer learning adventures on Twitter,  so please visit our blog or follow us on Twitter @GorseyY2 to keep up to date with everything we get up to!
