Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

In year 2, we focus on building independence and resilience towards learning. Expectations are high; we take our Seven Secrets of Success very seriously because we understand just how crucial they are to achieving lifelong success.

We also understand how important it is to take risks in our learning; nothing ventured, nothing gained!

We foster a positive attitude towards learning, where aspirations can be set high and a child’s emotional well-being and development are at the forefront of all that we do. Although typical learning is more formal than previous years, play still plays an integral part in our learning and development in the classroom. Drama in particular is an excellent vehicle to develop both confident speakers and writers.

Children are encouraged to take on responsibilities around the class – some of these responsibilities include: plant monitor; book monitor; light monitor and tidy monitor. This is all part of helping our children to take responsibility for themselves, others and their environment.

This year, we will buddy up with Year 5 once a week where we will focus on developing our Thrive skills for life targets as well as developing our reading and writing skills together.

We will attend forest school on alternate half terms where we will focus on furthering our Science, Geography, DT and social skills with Rob.

What can parents do?

The most important thing that parents and carers can do at home to support their child’s learning is regular reading followed by discussion about the book. Alongside this, in Year 2, building their confidence with the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table will provide them will an excellent foundation for their mathematical development.

Children are expected to read to an adult at home 4 times a week. They need an adult to sign their home school diary each time in order to collect their reading tokens and to be ticked off on the homework sheet. The week runs from Friday to Thursday in preparation for the Rewards Assembly on a Friday morning.


Discovery 

We are kicking off the year with a space theme. We plan to discover the planets as well as using our imaginations to explore alien life! We will visit the National Space Centre and get to see a real rocket up close and personal as well as experiencing their planetarium. 

Throughout the year, our discovery lessons will include themes such as 'Under the Sea', 'Magical Creatures'  and 'Safari'.
