Copernicus (Year 2)

Welcome to Year 2

Teacher: Mrs Dowson

Teaching Assistant: Miss Hewitt



Year 2 marks the last year of KS1 and it is a very fun, exciting and busy year. The children in our class love to learn and we make sure that our learning is done in lots of different ways so that everyone is able to access it at an appropriate level. Your child will take part in many exciting opportunities linked to our topics- The Scented Garden, Towers, Tunnels and Turrets, Land Ahoy!, Wiggle and Crawl and Beachcombers. In addition, we will enjoy teaching and learning the curriculum in preparation for the end of year SATS which will take place in May. 

Phonics Screening Check 


The Year 1 phonics screening will take place the first week back after half term 6th – 10th June.

Year 2 children who did not pass the phonic screening in the Autumn term will also be resitting the phonics screening check during this week. 

Your child has made super progress in their reading this year.

Let’s keep them reading this half-term for maximum success in the Phonics Screening Check.

Three things you can do to help:

  • Take a look at the ‘Helping your child with Phonics’ information pack to find out how we teach phonics and what resources we use.
  • Listen to your child read the book bag books sent home and the eBooks that they have been allocated on New login cards have been sent home again before the half term. (Some children may be given ditty sheets instead of books.)
  • Click on the virtual classroom links so that children can practise all of the set two and set three sounds ready for the phonics screening check.

Please read below to find out about what we have been learning this half term and visit our WOW Moments page. 

PE is on a Wednesday. Please ensure children come to school in appropriate clothes and footwear for PE. 

Reading books are changed every Monday and Friday. Please make sure book bags are in school on these days. Children will bring home a reading book matched to their phonic ability and a book for pleasure out of the library that you can read to them.
