Mrs Burgess

Learning Support Assistant and Extended School

Welcome to Year 2!

Throughout the year pupils will cover four topics: Comparing the UK and Kenya, Fire! Fire!, Riotous Royalty and Oh! I do like to be beside the Seaside.

Within these, they will take part in a range of lessons to develop their knowledge and understanding including Art, DT, History and Geography. They also look at different areas of Science including: Living Things and their Habitats, Plants, Animals including Humans and Uses of Every Day Materials.

Over the year we go on a number of educational visits linked to our areas of study including: a local walk, a visit from Yorkshire owl Experience, the National Emergency Services Museum in Sheffield as well as a trip to the seaside and an ice cream. Yummy!


Things you need to know:

  • Spellings are taught in school using Spelling Shed. Please make sure you use the app or the website - there are lots of games to help you learn your spellings! (Your log in details will be in your planner).
  • Grid homework is given out at the beginning of each topic. 
  • Our PE days are Monday and Thursday every week - please have your PE kt in school for these days.
  • Bring your planner to school every day to support your learning in class.

Grown ups - please try to read for 5-10 minutes every day and sign your child's planner each time you do so. Please don't read all the books in one go - we are trying to build good reading habits!
