Welcome to Year 2 Chestnust!
Welcome to Year 2!
We are having lots of fun getting to know each other and we are ready to get stuck in with our learning. In year 2, we will learn lots of interesting and new things but most importantly, we like to have lots of fun! Your mental health and wellbeing is paramount to us. Therefore, we will be spending a lot of time completing activities that enable us to feel great and make us think about our own wellbeing and how important this is. This will include having numerous opportunities to talk out about our feelings and identifying all emotions.
In Year 2 we embrace growth. Our children learn that oopses and wobbles are necessary in order to challenge themselves and grow their brains to become the best independent learners they can be.
Please help us in school by remembering the following:
Children must arrive at school wearing their full school uniform. Please make sure all items of clothing are named.

We will be uploading the half termly overviews that link to the areas of our curriculum and tell you the types of activities that we will be doing in school.

We understand that the mathematical methods taught in school may be different from what adults at home know and use. Use this link to find videos that explain the methods taught in school for each operation.
Phonics continues from Year 1, and in Year 2 children gain new skills and enhance their current phonics skills. I would like draw your attention to Mini Writers Club on Instagram. They have lots of handy explanations (like the ones below) and activity ideas, so why not take a look.
