Fireflies - Year 2 Class

Welcome to Fireflies!

Hello and welcome to Fireflies! smiley


The class teacher of Fireflies is Miss Fowler, with Mrs Allen (Mon -Thurs) and Miss Shearer (Tues - Fri) supporting as Class TAs. 


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 the next year. 


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. On a Friday, we have a R.E. lesson in place of a literacy lesson. We finish off the day with our other subjects, that include science, history, geography, P.E., music, computing and art or D.T. 


P.E. Kits... 

Can all children come to school ready in their P.E. kits on the following days: 

Autumn 1Wednesday and Thursday.
Autumn 2Tuesday and Thursday.
Spring 1Tuesday and Thursday. 
Spring 2Tuesday and Wednesday. 
Summer 1Thursday
Summer 2Monday


Home Learning... 

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.
