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

This half term we have been super busy preparing for our Christmas production of Christmas counts.  The children worked tirelessly on learning their lines, when to come on stage, dance moves and their singing.  It culminated in an absolutely fantastic production and the children were extremely proud of themselves.

Science lessons for 2T have been focused on investigating materials, learning about their properties and using their enquiry skills to find out more.

2S have been exploring the Scottish island of Struay where the fictional character Katie Morag lives.  The children have produced maps, learned about geographical features and have compared life on Struay to theirs in Altrincham.

Things to look forward to…

Year 2 are looking forward to learning all about the Great Fire of London in History and learning some traditional poems in English next half term.

Building wonderful classroom communities with parents, carers and pupils.
