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

 

All of the children have settled well into the new routines of year 2 and are working hard, learning to become more independent. 

2S have been writing some super instructions and helped the people of Fairyland to create some maps to help visitors find their way around.

2T have been learning all about Katie Morag from her stories by Mairie Hedderwick.  The children have been retelling and rewriting the stories in their own words.

Year 2 have been continuing to learn about numbers and the number system and are using this knowledge to help with calculations and problem solving.

Both classes have loved going to the new library and self selecting their books to develop their love of reading.

Things to look forward to…

Year 2 will be busy with our preparations for the KS1 Christmas production. The children are looking

forward to learning new songs and practising their acting skills for their stage debuts.

Building wonderful classroom communities with parents, carers and pupils.
