Carlton Junior and Infant School


Welcome to Year 2

I am delighted to be able to introduce myself as your child's new class teacher and would like to welcome you to our Year 2 class page.

On this page you will find out what your child has been learning about during their time at school.

It is really important to share and celebrate the learning that takes place at school and work together to ensure the very best outcomes are achieved for all our children.

Reminder: Please remember to bring your guided reading books back to school everyday


Take a look at what we will be learning about this half term. 



We have been learning how to count forward and back in tens using this video to help us.

 Our Investors in Pupils display tells us what our individual targets are for this half term.

Please ask your child about their target and support them to achieve their goals.


The formation of letters is very important in English. We therefore practise how to form letters correctly using the cursive hand writing script. Please ensure your child practises their handwriting at home. 


Children in Year 2 are enjoying reading in their new Reading Area.  Please support your child to read at home. 

The more you read,

the more you will know.

The more that you learn,

the more places you'll go.

We have been learning about the place value of 2-digit numbers.

We used dienes to help us partition numbers and to identify how many tens and ones are in 2-digit numbers. 



Take a look at the video we are using to learn our 3 times tables.
