Welcome to Year 2!
Welcome to Year 2's page! This is an exciting and important year for you and your child as they approach their last year in key stage 1. We aim to provide a smooth transition back to school after the last few unsettled months. We aim to provide the children with a rich learning environment where children can learn effectively inside and outside of the classroom. Over the year, swimming, role play and forest school will continue to be a feature of school life in Year 2. Wherever possible, we take on a thematic approach to your child’s learning. This allows them to become immersed in the theme regardless of its specific subject. Ultimately, we want your child to enjoy learning and explore their interests further. Children will follow a programme of study to meet the curriculum for Year 2 with a daily maths and English session as well as targeted phonics.
PE is on a Monday and Friday. Children will need to come to school in their kit and appropriate footwear. PE this term will be outside.
This will be in the first part of the Autumn term. Due to the unpredictable weather, please ensure children are well prepared with warm layers and ready for wet weather!
Please try to read with your child three times a week. They will be rewarded for the amount of times they read at home through our Reading Rocket Challenge! You could support them by asking them questions about the text they have read.
Your child will be provided with spellings each week.
A SATs meeting will be held later in the year to discuss how the school approaches this time.
