Year Two

Welcome to year 2. We have two year 2 classes, one called Gandhi and the other called Hawking. Each class has their own teacher and we are lucky enough to have 3 teaching assistants to help us learn.

 

 

 

Being in year 2 is a lot of fun. We are the oldest children in key stage 1 so we need to set an example to the younger children so that they know what to do in school and how important it is to be kind to each other.

We really work on our fluency of reading in year 2 so its important that we read at home every single day. We read a lot in school too. We want to be able to read fluently ready for being in year 3. We also work hard the learn key facts in maths using our Maths Passports. Don’t forget to ask us what our latest target is!

Our PE lessons are on a Wednesday. It is a good idea to bring your full PE kit into school at the start of every term, and keep it in school until a school holiday. This is to make sure you have your kit in school for every PE lesson. Please make sure you put your name in any clothing you send into school so that we can help you do their best to look after it.

We know that in year 2 we do our SATs but we really don’t worry about this. Its not like the tests in year 6. Our teachers use lots of our work from our books to help them assess how we are doing. We are really lucky too as Mrs Summerscales and Miss Clapham and experts in assessment in year 2 and even go to other schools to help them with assessment too.

We have put some information together below so you can find out more about what we learn in year 2:
