Welcome to Year 2

Please follow our class Twitter page https://twitter.com/Mrs_Murt_KSL

Mrs Rogers and myself would like to welcome you to our class page. Here you will find information about what goes on in our classroom and when things are due in school.

 

This term we are focusing on reading and applying our phonics to our writing. Due to the pandemic the children have missed a lot of school and in order to close the gap we need to ensure all the children are fluent readers. To help us work on this, we would really appreciate if you could read with your child daily. We may also send additional sounds home for them to work on. 

 

Below is a link to our termly curriculum overviews.
