2022-23 Year 2

We wanted to welcome you all to a new school year. We hope you enjoyed a well deserved summer holiday! We are looking forward to hearing all about your summer breaks and we are so excited about starting the new academic year in Year 2. 


Ms Sassoli (Monday and Tuesday) and Ms Barnes-Weston (Wednesday-Friday) will be your teachers this year and Mrs Wright will be your teaching assistant within the classroom. We will be using Class Dojo to share weekly learning and celebrating your achievements. 


Please find below the yearly overview for Year 2 and an example of a weekly timetable.  Please note that on occasions lesson will be blocked or swapped around but every Monday will be a PE session and every Thursday until October Half term will be a swimming lesson.  After Half Term the swimming will become a second weekly PE lesson on a Thursday.



We will be starting our traditional tales unit at the start of this term. We will explore the story of Little Red Riding Hood, finding the traditional tale features and learning about proper nouns (a noun that names a particular person, place, or thing). We will be collecting adjectives to use in our own retelling of the story.



At Isleham we follow the Power Maths scheme of work and across the Autumn term we will be covering four units of work, which include numbers to 100, addition and subtraction (two units) and properties of shapes. The overview of the units are shown below and we will be sharing learning weekly on Class Dojo as the units progress.

In our Science lessons we are going to be learning about materials. We will identify and name materials and consider their properties. We will then use this knowledge to think about why materials may be suitable for their purpose.
Why are windows made from glass and not fabric? 
Children will sort materials into criteria and take part in some investigations to answer scientific questions. 

 Foundation Subjects

 We offer a broad and balanced curriculum at Isleham C of E school.  The yearly overview highlights the subjects taught and there will be opportunities of trips and events tied into our areas of learning throughout the year.  We will be holding a  Year 2 Curriculum information session on  Monday 12th September 3.30 - 3.45 where we will talk through the areas taught this term.    If you can't make this please see the PowerPoint below which will be uploaded after the event with all the information you need.

How to help your child in Year 2:


Support your child with daily reading and encourage them by ticking that you have heard/seen them read in their reading record book. Don’t forget to add a comment yourself.

Reading record books  to come into school every day, please.
