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.

It’s all about balance
A well-balanced diet combined with exercising helps to keep the body healthy; in science we explored the benefits of exercising and eating a balanced diet. In English and maths, we learnt about types of sentences and ordering values, respectively.
Wheels, Axles and Place Value!
We have learnt that the wheel and axle is a simple machine that helps make work easier; our scooters, bikes, cars and wheelbarrows have wheels and axles. As is the case in a design and technology lesson, we made a start on designing our axle type. In maths, we have been learning about the place value of the digits in a number. We are learning new things everyday!
Enjoying the sun
After a fun but busy week practising counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, as well as reading and exploring the themes in our book, ‘Frog and the Stranger’, we spent time on the field.
Here we are developing our hand-eye coordination and wrist strength and getting lots of fresh air in the process, in our Game On session.
Seamlessly and with bucket loads of confidence and energy, Badger Class have made a great start to Year 2. We have been exploring numbers, physical and human features (in Watford), talking and writing about what happiness means to us…and it has only been a week!
