Welcome to Year 2
Year 2 is taught this year by Miss Bell and supported by Mrs Dwyer. We also have Miss Ibbotson teaching us RE and Senora Stansfield teaching us Spanish on a Tuesday.
Subjects are taught in a variety of different ways to support the needs of every learner. We work hard to encourage engagement and motivation from every child and are dedicated to support our children to instill lifelong love of learning.
Phonics, Maths and Literacy are taught during the morning which leaves our afternoons open to explore the rest of the curriculum, following the interests of the children.
In May your child will be assessed with the statutory KS1 SATs. You can find more information about what this means by clicking here
Every child in school has a Learning Journal. This is to assist them with their learning and documents their targets. There is a section in this for parents and teachers to use to communicate and also a reading record section. Learning Journals must be brought to school every morning and taken home at the end of every day.
PE will be on a Wednesday morning and Monday afternoon this year. It is very important that you have PE kit in school every day. Please ensure you have a white T shirt, black shorts/track suits and trainers in school. You may also want a purple hoody for when we are outside.
Home Learning will be sent home on a Friday. Please make sure it is returned by the following Thursday. Children will have weekly spellings to practice linked to the common exception words and any new spelling rules we learn about during the year. They will also have key number facts to practice at the beginning of each half term.
Please continue to read with and to your child too. Children will have the opportunity on a Friday to visit the library and take home an additional library book.
