Weekly Spelling:  This half term we have started teaching spelling through the No Nonsense Spelling Programme. Each week your child will bring home spellings with a rule we have been teaching in school. Below are a variety of different ways to practice and learn spellings at home. We will also be using these in school to support the children's progress.

Reading in Year 2: 

Below are some tips to support your child's reading. It is so important that children read regularly at home as well as at school. We really do appreciate your support in this matter.

The children have made a great start to the term and we are already getting stuck into our topic, BLAST OFF! Please find below information about the curriculum this term.

Transition Information: Please find below the transition documents for Flamingo Class, who will become Penguins in September. We are looking forward to meeting all of the children in person next term. Thank you to everyone who has joined the class zoom calls, watched Mrs Mott and Miss Panting's story video, and sent in letters and pictures. We have loved hearing from you and look forward to the children starting in Year 2.

Spelling and Phonics in Year 2.

Below you will find details of spelling patterns which we will be teaching your child this year. Because of COVID 19, the children did not complete their phonics screening so all children from Year 2 will complete the screen in Autumn 2020. 

The two documents below contain the Year 2 common exceptions words which should be known by the end of the year; the second is the English Appendix, containing all spelling patterns and rules which are taught across the school.
