Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to Year 2’s page where lots of exciting and interesting new learning is taking place!

In Year 2 we continue to develop the children’s growing independence and thinking skills through our learning challenges.  Pupils are given the opportunity to self-select the level of challenge with support and guidance at hand.

Daily Maths and English lessons are taught, along with History, Geography and Science led topics.  The curriculum is brought to life through a range of engaging themes such as Fire! Fire!, Global Gardens and Life on an island.

Key skills are practised and effort praised, pupils are encouraged to have a go and learn to realise their strengths and those things that they cannot do – yet!

During the Summer term all Year 2 pupils are formally assessed as part of the end of Key Stage assessment programme, known as SATS.

Highlights for this half term

 

Both Year 2 classes enjoyed a fun filled day at Delamere Forest learning all about the different animals that live there.  They carried out a bug hunt, made animal shelters and even climbed to the top of Old Pale Hill.  Ranger Ben entertained the children with his enthusiasm and knowledge of forest animals.  All of the children had a brilliant time….and some even fell asleep on the coach on the way back to school.

 

Things to look forward to…

The children are looking forward to moving into Y3, so we are beginning to get them ‘Junior ready’ in time for September.  Class 2T are looking forward to making their own puppets before the term finishes.

Building wonderful classroom communities with parents, carers and pupils.
