Hello and welcome to our new Year Two page for 2019/2020.
The staff in Year Two this year will be Mrs Whittell, Miss Abernethy, Miss Dimmock and Mrs Skolas. What an exciting year we have ahead of us! Please follow our Y2 class Twitter page to see what we do in our learning, to find out about the exciting things which we have planned and for useful resources to support learning at home.
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 lessons 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 as your drop off your child or pick them up, or if you require more time, feel free to make an appointment via the school office.
Our school day includes daily Phonics, Reading, English and Mathematics lessons. The children in Year 2 also have a rich and varied timetable including weekly Science, Topic, R.E, P.E and Art/Computing lessons, with lots of extra experiences and visitors to help us to learn. Throughout the term, the children will bake in small groups and enjoy sharing the goods which they have designed and made.
Please ensure your child has the correct uniform, PE kit, book bag with their reading book and a water bottle each day for school, so that they are ready to learn. Our suggested baking money contribution is 50p per week.
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 learning at home and how best to help them to make progress- we appreciate that many of us learned to read, write and solve maths problems in a different way and are more than happy to show you how we teach these skills in Year Two.
We look forward to an exciting year working with both children and parents and welcome any questions that you may have.
Mrs Whittell, Miss Abernethy, Miss Dimmock and Mrs Skolas.
