Year 2 Class
Welcome to Year 2’s class page.
Meet the Year 2 team
Mrs Day: Class Teacher
Mrs Johnson: 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: The History of St Helens, The Great Fire of London and Oceans and Seas of the world.
The children are taught Religious Education, Jigsaw, English, Mathametics, 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. 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 have lots of fun in Year 2 and there are many opportunities for children to consolidate their learning through taking part in activities such as extra-curricular visits and workshops throughout the year.
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!
The children will be having PE each Tuesday and Friday. PE days vary throughout the year depending on the planned provision.
Dance and Indoor Athletics
They will need to have a full PE kit of white t-shirt, black shorts and black PE pumps. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term for washing.
Please ensure that your child’s name is in their PE kit also.
Homework is given out each Friday. It will need to be returned by the following Wednesday. This gives us time to change their book, mark homework and prepare the next set. 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.
The children will be given spellings to learn each Friday. They will be tested on the following Friday.
Your child’s reading book will be in their homework bag each Friday and return them, with their homework on a Thursday. Please ensure that you read with your child each week and sign their reading diary.
These assessments take place throughout the month of May.
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, S.P.A.G. and maths skills. 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.
