Fireflies - Year 2 Class
Welcome to Fireflies!
Hello and welcome to Fireflies!
The class teacher of Fireflies is Miss Fowler with Mrs Allen supporting as the class TA.
As children move into Year 2, there is a greater shift towards taught lessons containing fun and engaging activities. There will always be opportunities for learning in a practical, 'hands-on' way, making use of equipment and outdoor areas. During the year, we will be continuing to encourage a more independent approach to learning ready for Key Stage 2.

A typical day in Year 2...
The day starts with phonics / spelling, followed by Literacy where we complete tasks based off the class text. After break, we have Maths and Guided Reading. After Lunch we fill the afternoons with other subjects including RE, Science, History, Geography, P.E., PSHE, Music, Computing and Art or D.T. We then finish the day with Collective Worship and a story.
Can all children come to school ready in their P.E. kits on the following days:
|Autumn 1||Monday and Wednesday.|
|Autumn 2||Monday and Tuesday|
|Spring 1||Monday and Thursday|
|Spring 2||Monday and Wednesday|
Children are expected to read everyday at home and their reading record are checked twice a week. Book change days are on a Monday and Thursday, so please make sure you bring your reading book on those days. Children who read 4 times a week will get a golden ticket to put into Mrs David's special bag in celebration assembly and be in with a chance of winning a free book.
