Year 2

Here are the key books we study in class in Year 2. Below, you can click the document to find out more about how and why we use these books.


Autumn 1:

This half term, we've been reading some older literature which children over the past hundred years would have read. This has enabled the children to make links with our history learning this half term.


We've looked closely at the 'Tale of Peter Rabbit' by Beatrix Potter and found out about her life. The tale acted as a stimulus for some of our writing this half term, including writing our very own versions of the story.  We've also read 'The Enchanted Wood' by Enid Blyton and have loved seeing what wonderful characters would be coming down the Faraway Tree. 


We actively encourage the children to find an author or genre that they are interested in and to read as much as possible for pleasure. This includes the children reading and listening to both stories and non-fiction texts.
