Hello and welcome to our new Year Two page for 2018/2019.
The staff in Year Two this year will be Mrs Whittell, Mrs Azaam, Miss Dimmock and Mrs Skolas. What an exciting year we have ahead of us!
In Year Two, learning through exploring and being creative underpins all that we do and we adopt a 'cross curricular' approach to learning. Whenever possible, the children's learning will be based around the topic for each half term and their reading, writing and maths skills will be applied in all subjects. The Year Two team are excited about being part of your child’s learning journey and highly value the impact which a strong parent teacher partnership can have. Please drop in and see us informally any time after school, or if you require more time, feel free to make an appointment via the school office.
Our school day includes daily phonics, English and Mathematics lessons. and the children in Year 2 also have weekly Science, Topic and Art/ICT lessons. Throughout the term the children will bake in small groups and enjoy the goods which they have designed and made. Each half term we begin with an RE/ PSHE week which we then refer to and build upon throughout each day in school.
Please ensure your child has the correct uniform, PE kit and a water bottle each day for school, so that they are ready to learn.
We welcome you to join us each Friday at 8.45am for 'Reading Club', which runs until 9am. During this time, please feel free to ask any questions about supporting your child's reading at home and how best to help them to make progress- we appreciate that many of us learned to read in a different way and are more than happy to help!
