Year 2 Class
Welcome to Year 2’s class page.
Meet the Year 2 team
Miss Philbin-Smith: Class Teacher
Miss Cahill: Support Assistant
In Year 2 we encourage children to begin to apply their fabulous early years learning and build upon their growing skill set. We celebrate the children’s achievements and encourage a love of learning! Each half term we focus on a particular topic and use a cross-curricular approach to engage and enthuse the children. Our topics for this academic year are: Women Throughout History, The Great Fire of London and Chinese New Year.
The children are taught Religious Education, PSHE (Jigsaw), English, Mathematics, Read Write Inc, Science, History, Geography, Computing, Internet Safety, Music, Art and Design Technology.
Our two School Council Representatives are chosen by the children each year and take our ideas and share them with the rest of the School Council. This year the children have nominated Harry and Willow. We also have two class Eco School Councillors and many more other important child-led roles which enable the children to feel valued and important.
We hope the information on this page gives you a ‘window’ into life in Year 2. Our door is always open if you would like to visit!
Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. The children are required to come to school in their PE kit on these days. In PE we are currently learning the rules of bench ball with Coach Dave and learning about rhythm and movement in dance with Miss Smith.
Book bags and homework will be sent out on a Friday. Book bags are due back in on a Tuesday and homework is to be sent back via Seesaw on Thursdays. It is important that your child completes their homework each week as it consolidates their learning from school and also gives them a chance to show off what it is that they can do.
These assessments usually take place throughout the month of May. I will update you on SATs information as soon as we know more about it as this year may differ due to Covid.
As you will be aware, Year 2 is still a SATs year. These will take place in May and June. The children will be assessed on their reading, writing, SPaG. and mathematics. These results are important as they are used as a guideline for how the children are progressing. Further information will become available to you and I am hoping to hold a parents’ meeting in order to explain this process further to you during this half term.
