Year 2 - Saola
Welcome Year 2!
This year the theme for the Holy Trinity class names comes from different continents around the world. In Year 2 our selected continent is Asia. Our class name, Saola, is taken from an indigenous animal to Vietnam and Laos found in the mountains and rainforests of the Annamite Range. The saola comes from the bovine family has the nickname of 'The Asian Unicorn' due to its beautiful, majestic horns.
Year 2 Curriculum Map
Please see below what Year 2 are learning this term. If you click on the documents, they will open into a large version.
The documents are Knowledge Organisers. They contain key facts and information that the children need to have as a basic knowledge and understanding of the topic – giving them the ‘bigger picture’ of what they will be learning at school.
The Department for Education have written and recorded online lessons presented by phonics experts. These are designed to cover new phonics teaching that children would have received over the summer term had they been in school.
Three sets of lessons will be available. One set for Reception and one for Year 1 , based on where children are expected to be in their learning in the summer term. A third set of lessons focuses on extra blending practice which is an area that some children find the most challenging.
