Year 2

 

Welcome to Year 2

 

​We are very excited to welcome you to our Year 2 page. In Year 2, we continue to encourage pupils to develop a love of learning and a zest for life. We want our pupils to experience a rich, broad and stimulating curriculum, and they are encouraged to work hard and enjoy their achievements from the start. Please browse our page to find out what we will have in store for them over the next year.

 

The Year 2 Team

 

Our Year 2 class teachers are Miss Cunniffe and Miss Robinson. Our fabulous learning support assistants, Miss Redmond and Mrs Partington also work with our Y2 children, enabling them to make the best possible progress throughout their learning journey. This year, we are also very lucky to have a graduate teacher, Miss Gaskill working with us.

​​Homework
                                               
In order to support your child's learning and development at home, we do expect that you are able to guide them in completing some weekly home learning:
  • 15 minutes reading per night
  • Practising spellings for their weekly spelling quiz.
  • Spend time on Mathletics (usernames and passwords are in the front of their reading records - remember they need at least 1000 points per week to earn a certificate) 
  • Challenges linked to the topics we are learning about.  These will be sent home with your child throughout the topic, but will not be set weekly.
  • Engage with and complete family challenges and projects sent home over half terms.

 

What can parents can do to help?

 

  • ​Keep up-to-date with your child's learning via Tapestry.  Please feel free to 'like' and share comments in order to celebrate your child's ongoing achievements.
  • Read books with your child and talk about the story, the poems or the information in them.  Explore which parts of the book they enjoyed the most and why?
  • Allow your child to read at their own pace and encourage them to re-read their favourite stories.  Regularly sign their reading records.
  • Find lots of opportunities to write together - make lists before you go shopping and write letters / texts to friends and family.  Help them to make their own books, posters or labels for things in their own bedroom.
  • Help your child to count forwards and backwards from different numbers and help them to recite their x2, x5 and x10 tables.
  • Use Mathletics to recall number facts and consolidate mathematical concepts that have been taught in school.

 

Topics, Trips and Visits
In Year 2 we have lots of exciting topics and learning focuses:

PE days

 

Miss Robinson's class: P.E. lessons will take place each Monday by their class teacher and by our PE coach on Thursday.

 

Miss Cunniffe's class : P.E. lessons will take place each Thursday and Friday by our PE coach.

 

Please can you ensure that your child has their P.E. kit in school each week?  Also, if your child wears earrings, please can these be removed on P.E. days?  Alternatively you may wish to send into school plasters to cover their stud earrings (Please be advised that school cannot supply these).
