Welcome to Class 2D and our class webpage. Your class teacher is Mrs Dowker and Mrs Davies is our teaching assistant who will be in class to support you with your learning. On Wednesday morning, Mrs Baker is in 2D teaching whilst Mrs Dowker has her time out of class. Our topic for the second half of the spring term is Incredible India.

To all the amazing children and their families in 2D at this time, I am thinking of all of you and will keep in touch with you as much as I can via our class page. I have added a satchel image for the home learning links. Click on this and it takes you to links to lots of different pages where I have put weblinks, video clips and some learning activities that you can print off. I have put the times table songs and the internet link for the Maths games into the home learning pages as well as there pictures that you are use to clicking on below.

Keep reading and I am looking forward to hearing what books you are enjoying at home and any new authors you have discovered that you can share with me.

Most importantly, look after each other, be kind and helpful to your grown-ups, brothers, sisters and other people in your family.

I will see you all as soon as this all gets sorted and we are back together.

Bye in person but I will be in touch.

Thank you to everyone who came to the Year 2 Curriculum evening, it was lovely to see you. If you couldn't make it, don't worry the slides shown can be seen on the link below as a pdf. On Friday 20th September we sent home the Year 1 and 2 common exception words and the 100 High frequency words that we talked about.

At Torrisholme, we are continuously striving to develop ways to encourage our children to read for pleasure. We have created a ‘HOT BOOKS’ list of 30 up-to-date, age-appropriate texts, compiled from a range of suggested reading lists. This is not an exhaustive list of fabulous year group appropriate books but is more a fun challenge list for our children to explore texts written in a wide range of styles by a selection of current and popular children’s authors.


How many can your child read or share with you?


On your marks…

          get set…

                                and READ!
