Fox Class - Year 2


Welcome to Fox Class
I am Miss Wells Fox Class teacher we are a year 2 class! 
Year 2 can be a big jump from year 1 for some children and takes a bit of getting used to.
In Fox Class, the children work extra hard to push themselves and achieve their targets. They support each other and learn to become more independent. They understand that sometimes in learning we have to take risks. We call this jumping in the learning pit!

Maths is taught using the White Rose Hub teaching sequence. The children are given varied fluency and problem solving questions to assess their application of methods and mental calculation strategies.


We have two sessions of PE during the week (usually on a Tuesday and Friday). When the weather is good, both will be outside. 


We use the scheme - Power of Reading - to plan English which is based around a focus book. Varied writing tasks are set every week which are connected to the book. Lesson time is put aside each week to teach spelling, punctuation and grammar.  

Each Friday, the children are given a new set of spelling words as homework. This is linked to the spelling rule we are learning in phonics and is due back on the following Thursday.  Children who are unable to hand their homework in on time will attend homework club on Friday lunchtimes to complete this work. 

Some of the year 2 children have the opportunity to use Accelerated Reader. It is able to assess a child’s reading age and then recommends suitable books for them. Daily sessions are set aside each day in school for silent reading and for the children to take quizzes when they finish books. We would still like your child to read at home at least five times a week and hand in their communication diary, signed by you each day.


If you have any questions, please do talk to me in person or email me.
