Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

 

Mrs Leneghan is the class teacher and Mrs Lowe is the teaching assistant. On this page, you will find information about Class Two news, pictures of things we've done and more.

Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.

 

The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 2. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!
