Year 2 – Badger

Welcome to Year 2. The children are in their final year of the Infants School and will be working with more independence as they continue to progress academically.

We follow the letters and sounds approach for phonics and use Oxford Reading Tree Scheme for Reading.

Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like more information about the curriculum.

  • Santa & his lost elf and reindeer

    This week, we had an exciting letter from Santa telling us he has lost an elf and reindeer when he was practising flying! He asked us for help, and we went on a hunt to look for items that might lead us to where the elf and reindeer might be hiding! We are now writing about it in our English lessons. 


  • Life Processes

    This week Badger class have been looking at life processes. We sorted pictures of various items, living and non-living things by checking them against the life processes deciding whether they were dead or never alive. 

  • Numbers

    Badger class have been learning to represent numbers in a variety of ways. 

    We used beads, base 10, money, arrow cards and the cherry model to show the same number! Badger class really enjoyed using all the different mathematical equipment. 

  • Design & Technology

    Year 2 have been learning about wheels and axles in Design and Technology. We looked at different ways we can attach the wheels to the axle and finding solutions to keeping the axle in place! We are looking forward to making our buses using the cardboard boxes we have been collecting.

  • Harvest Week

    This week Badger class have been learning about Bees as part of Harvest Week. For Art this week, we created our own wild flower garden painting using string art.
