Copernicus (Year 2)

Welcome to Year 2

Teacher: Mrs Dowson

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Curtis



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- Towers, Tunnels and Turrets, Land Ahoy and Wiggle and Crawl. 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 and Reading


Year 2 children who did not pass the phonic screening check in year 1 will resit the phonics screening in June 2023.


To support your child's phonics and reading:


  • Take a look at the ‘Helping your child with Phonics’ information pack to find out how we teach phonics and what resources we use.
  • 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.
  • Listen to your child read the book bag books sent home and the eBooks that they have been allocated on New login cards can be requested from the school office.
  • Make sure your child brings in their bookbag on a Monday and Friday to get a new book matched to their phonic ability and a reading for pleasure book that you can read to them. The class with the most reads each week wins a story time with the Miss Cooper and hot chocolate!
