Welcome to Year 2. Children here are taught by Mrs Mellett in 2MM assisted by Mrs Perrett and Mrs Seymour and Mrs Barringham in 2SB assisted by Mrs Pawar.
In year 2 we build on our learning from year 1 and start to become more independent learners. We like to take our learning out of the classroom wherever possible to make use of our school grounds as well as trips in the local area.
In maths we are working on developing our knowledge of place value and addition and subtraction. We use lots of concrete apparatus to secure our understanding.
In English we love exploring books to inspire our writing and we are working really hard to develop our sentence structure and punctuation to make our writing interesting to read.
Children in Year 2 are assessed on their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum in the Year 2 SATs tests in May. Although they are tests, they are administered in a familiar way with the children and they often don’t realise they are doing a test at all. We never talk about tests with the children they are a tool for teachers and not something parents or children should be worried or concerned about. Your child’s results in the tests will be reported to you in their end of year report. You can find more information in the side panels.
