Year 2: Ivy Class Mrs Briscoe

A list of brilliant books that explore lots of different themes that you and your child could share together.

Welcome back, Ivy class!


It is great to see you all back in school. I have been impressed by how quickly you have settled down to our new way of working and most importantly how you are enjoying being back with your friends.

In term one we will be learning about the Great Fire of London and link this to our science work when we learn about different materials and their properties.  In term two we will travel across the world to the Kalahari dessert and learn about what animals need to survive. Please look at the reading inspired curriculum and knowledge organisers to find out more.



Please try to read every night. You can change your reading book every week. Please try to make some time to read to your child – the children are able to choose a text every week that may quite challenging for them to read independently but they would love to listen to you read to them or even take turns.

Spelling Shed and TTRockStars will also be part of our homework.

Knowledge Organisers

We have started to introduce Knowledge Organisers over the past year. These documents provide children and parents/carers with factual information about the main book they are reading this term. Please feel free to print off the knowledge organiser and share it with your child. The aim is that they provide another opportunity to talk about learning at home. 


The Extraordinary Lives document supports our curriculum. It shares some of the key figures from history to the present day who we will spend some time thinking about during the year. Some of these figures link directly to some of the books we read and we will look at in detail. Others, we may mention briefly in Worship or during PSHE.
