Welcome to the Year 2 class page!
In Year 2, we pride ourselves on working hard but also on enjoying ourselves and having fun. Research has shown that cultivating happiness in the classroom is crucial to your child's academic success. There's learning for learning's sake (because that's what we all do at school, right?) and then there's learning for the love of learning. That's where we want our children to be.
The children in Year 2 are lucky enough to be supported by a highly experienced team of class teachers:
- Miss Schofield BA (hons), MA, PGCE
- Mrs Groom (Teaching Assistant)
On here, you will be able to find useful information and updates about your child’s learning. Our one BIG ask is that you hear your child read as much as you possibly can: we recommend a minimum of 4 times a week. Don't forget to sign their reading record books too! If you have any questions at all, at any time, please don't hesitate to ask.
Please be aware that children should come into school on Mondays and Wednesdays, dressed for PE. They will stay in these clothes for the duration of the day.
|Monday||PE / Science / Computing|
|Tuesday||Topic / Art|
|Wednesday||PE / PSHE|
|Thursday||RE / Music|
|Friday||Spellings / Art / Golden time|
Year 2 Times Tables Superstars!
Over the coming months, I will be completing optional assessment of the children on their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. If they would like to come to me and recite their tables at any point, they will receive recognition and a reward.
Star of the Week: Rudy!
For excellent story-writing in English.
R.E: The Big Question...
What did Jesus teach?
Is it possible to be kind to everyone all of the time?
In line with our school values and our Discovery RE curriculum, Year two will be learning, this term, about the importance of kindness within the context of Christianity. The children will be considering some of the parables through which Jesus sought to teach us about kindness, as well as thinking about examples of their own kindness to others and the difficulties they can encounter when doing this. I would be grateful if you could reiterate the importance of acts of kindness at home.
Orator of the Week: Katie!
Our orator of the week will be chosen for his / her use of oracy in the classroom: for using kind or polite words, body-language to express themselves, good eye-contact and listening skills, excellent vocabulary, verbal contributions or expression, all essential skills for progress and learning.
