Year Groups: Year 2
A warm welcome to Year 2
Our Class Christian Values are: Wisdom (2R), Respect (2G) and Kindness (2P).
We sent home a letter about phonics on Friday 23rd October. Please find below some resources to support your child in phonics. Sound and blend each real and alien word. Why not hide the words around a room and encourage your child to find them?
Many thanks for your support.

Y2 Class Christian Values
In Year 2, we embed our Class Christian Values into as much of our learning as is possible. Our Class Christian Values are:
2G – Respect
2P – Kindness
2R – Wisdom
Please see below for Autumn term 2 spellings, which this term have a phonics focus.
Your child will bring home their reading record containing 2 books at their reading level. Please listen to them read every night and check their understanding, asking questions as they go through the book. Please then record that you have heard them read, in their reading record.
When your child has read through both books twice, they will be changed at school.
Please note: Once your child reaches level 12, these books become much lengthier; we only expect them to read these books once before changing, provided they are fluent on the first read.
If your child is isolating at home and they have finished their reading books, click on this link to access free age appropriate eBooks.
Thank you for your support.
Worksheets and games will be set on Abacus every Friday to reflect the learning in class (beginning Friday 18th September). Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you need login details.

Prayers on our class values
World Book Day
On World Book Day, we dressed up as our favourite book characters. Can you guess who we are?
In Y2, we made displays showing how each person is different and how we should celebrate our differences. We learned a lot of amazing things about each other!
Florence Nightingale Day
To celebrate the end of our topic on Florence Nightingale, we had a re-enactment day. We dressed as nurses and soldiers and acted out the Battle of Inkerman on the school field. We then set up a field hospitals and the nurses bandaged up the wounded! It was a very exciting day for us all.
Peter Brown visit
Year 2 were very lucky to have a visit from local artist, Peter Brown. He showed the children some of his work, talked about how he paints different weather in his pictures of Bath and kindly gave us some of his books. The children had the opportunity to ask lots of questions and were then inspired to create their own pictures using paints and charcoal. Seb in 2LH said “It was the best day ever!”
DT in Year 2
We enjoyed designing, making and using our very own glove puppets. We learned how to do blanket stitch to join the pieces of felt and decorated them to create monsters and animals.
Christmas in Year 2
Year 2 performed their Nativities, ‘It Takes A Village’ on Monday 16th December. The children loved the traditional retelling of the Christmas story and sang songs from the show with some of their favourite Christmas Carols.
