 Our Class Novel

 

This term our class novel is Katie Morag and the New Pier. 

 

This ties in with our Coastlines topic. We will be looking closely to see if we can spot any familiar coastal features, as well as making predictions and using the text as inspiration for some descriptive writing. 

 

 

Little People Big Dreams Rosa Parks book cover

In the autumn term our class novel was Little People, Big Dreams Rosa Parks.

 

We read this as a class and learned a lot about Rosa Parks and her decision to fight for equal rights, as well as looking carefully at the language used and the features of a biography.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Phonics 

 

In Year 2 we continue to follow the RWI scheme to practise and improve our phonics knowledge.

 

From Reception through to Year 2 we deliver daily phonics and reading sessions. We stream the classes across KS1 so that the children are grouped according to ability. This means that they are reading at their own level, every day.

Spelling

 

These are the words we learn in Year 2 that do not follow the spelling rules we learn. 

 

 

Handwriting

 

In Year 2 we begin learning how to join our handwriting.
