Year 2 2023 - 2024

Mrs Dobson


Welcome to Year 2


Mrs Dobson and Mr Howarth


Class Dojo is a great way for me to keep in touch with you all. It's also great to share what you've been up to at home!


The Autumn term's context for learning within our vision is 'The Legacy of Adventure: Myths, Marvels and Mayhem.' Over the term, we will be learning about hot and cold places around the world and Ibn Battuta, and investigating 3 main concepts: courage, equality and legacy.


The Bog Baby : Willis, Jeanne, Millward, Gwen: Books

We will be reading the story of 'Bog Baby' by Jeanne Willis. 

When two small sisters go fishing to the magic pond, they find something much better than a frog or a newt. They find a bog baby. Small and blue with wings like a dragon, the girls decide to make him their secret. I won't tell if you won't.

But the bog baby is a wild thing, and when he becomes poorly, the girls decide they must tell their mum. And she tells them the greatest lesson: if you really love something, you have to let it go.



Place Value:  Numbers to 100, skip counting in 2's, 3's, 10's and 5s

Addition and subtraction:  Number bonds to 10, 20 and 100

Measurement:  Using a ruler to measure and calculate money.

Geometry:  2D shape - Describe, and identify lines of symmetry.


We will be investigating the uses of living things and their habitats and exploring them through our bog baby. We will be finding out what makes living things and where living things live.
