Welcome to Y2Mc class page!

Already this year we have been so busy learning new things and settling into Year 2!

During our Literacy learning, we have been using Talk$Writing to support in learning the story ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’. We have thoroughly enjoyed the story and even invented our own version of the story with our own characters.

To show off all we have learnt, we had a fantastic ‘Tiger Who Came to Tea’ party! A big thank you to all of our lovely families who came to share our success.

The Tiger even managed to come and visit us – after he had been to Sophie’s house!

During the Autumn term, our topic is ‘It’s a Wonderful World’. We have started our topic by looking at the UK, including countries, capitals and surrounding seas. You can find a handy song to help remember the countries and capitals on YouTube:


Our first RE topic ‘Beginnings’ has given us lots of opportunity to reflect on our own beginnings every day. We have learnt all about the Story of Creation through Godly Play. During our Autumn ‘Stay and Pray’ we shared the story with our parents and family. To show what we had learnt from the story, we all made a promise to God about how we will look after his creations. We sent them up to God using bio-degradable balloons.

We hope God received our promises. We will be making a special effort to act out our pledges.


This year, we have already blown Miss McCarthy away with our reading. We have all been trying our best to read at home, to earn Dojo points to gain awards and prizes. ALL of our class have earned our ’15 reads’ award, with some even earning their ’25 reads’ and ’50 reads’!

Remember – we earn an extra 10 Dojo points when we can read all of our Year 1 Common Exception Words and 20 Dojo Points when we can read all of our Year 2 Common Exception Words!

We are so proud of our reading achievements!
