Dormice (Year 2 AS)


Dear Parents/ Carers,

We know it can be tricky sometimes to know how best to support your child at home without a clear understanding of what is taught in school and how. To help, we have created some subject videos across the core subjects of reading, phonics and maths which will highlight what we teaching in Year 2, some methods of how we teach it, plus some top tips and hints from both of us. This should help bridge the link between home and school for all of our Foxes and Dormice children.

Reading & Phonics -

Maths -

Please have a watch and if you have any questions following the videos please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

Mr Riordan and Miss Etheridge

Year 2 Class Teachers


Welcome back, Dormice!

Welcome back, Dormice and I hope you had a fantastic Christmas break and a very happy New Year! Our Spring 1 topic is ‘Fire! Fire!’ based on The Great Fire of London! We will be reading and writing diaries based upon Samuel Pepys’ as well as investigating all the events of the 1666 fire in History alongside what life was during the period compared to 2022. In Maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division, statistics, shape, fractions and measure. Our topic will allow us to conduct scientific investigations regarding materials and heat, plus investigating materials and their suitability, such as how waterproof different materials are. This will feed into our D&T projects as we create products, items and houses. In RE, we will explore the question: ‘Why does Easter matter to Christians?’ as well as studying the New Year in different religions.
