Year 2

 Welcome to Year 2!


Burgundy class is taught by Mrs Cowdrith and Mrs Kamanyire.

Ruby class is taught by Miss Trainor.

There are three fantastic teaching assistants who work across both classes: Mrs Graham, Ms Monk and Mr Nash.

Twisted Tales

Whose side are you on?

This half-term our topic is Twisted Tales. In English, we will be reading alternative versions of traditional tales. We will learn to analyse characters and make predictions. In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and money. In Geography, we will be learning map skills by focusing on directions and learning to read and draw a map. In Art we will explore Miro and Hundertwasser to learn about colour, line and pattern. In Music we will be learning about African music, and in PE we will focus on developing multi-skills and dance.

General Information

Book-bags should be brought into school every day: we encourage children to be as independent as possible and to remember their book-bag for themselves.

We hear children read in Guided Reading sessions, and individually at other times.

Children are encouraged to change their books regularly.

Our PE days are;

    Burgundy Class: Monday (outdoor) and Thursday (indoor)

Ruby Class: Monday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor)

On PE days please bring your Morley PE kit to change into at school (see here for more details). A PE kit consists of: T-shirt, shorts, long-sleeved top and jogging bottoms, spare socks, trainers or plimsolls.  Long hair must be tied back and no jewellery please.

Children will need to bring a filled and named water bottle to school each day. The class tap is drinking water and the children are able to fill their bottles as needed.
