Year 2 2022 - 2023

Mrs Ainsworth

Mr Moorcroft


Welcome to Year 2!


"The child grew and became strong in body, mind and spirit."



The class teacher is Mrs. Ainsworth from Monday to Thursday and Mrs. Hill on a Friday. We are supported by Mrs. Chorley every morning. Mrs. Harrison will be teaching Year 2 on Tuesday mornings.


Year 2 will receive daily Phonics/Spellings sessions and weekly Guided Group reading sessions with an adult. Children need to bring in  their reading folder each day. Home books can be changed on Mondays and Thursdays. 

This half-term our English Pathways text will be 'The Last Wolf'

Reading for pleasure

To encourage reading for pleasure, your child will choose a book from our class library. This book may not be fully decodable to your child however with your support at home the book will become accessible and allow them to experience a book of their interests. This can be changed at any time and there is no expectation on how many times this is read.
