In Year 2, children come into class independently in the mornings and learn to become more responsible in their learning and in looking after themselves and their belongings.
We have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned through our topics such as the Great Fire of London, Native Americans and Inventors and Inventions.
Mis Irving is particularly passionate about Reading, Science and Art. She is always on the lookout for a good book to share and hopes to encourage a love of learning in all. As science coordinator, Miss Irving encourages pupils to question and explore the world around them and develop their scientific enquiry skills and knowledge. As part of this, Miss Irving is part of the environmental team, who are part of a nationwide initiative called ‘LessCO2’. She makes sure that the pupils are involved in the process through whole school lessons and extra-curricular clubs.
Things to remember:
Homework: In term 1, our main aim is to ensure that every child completes their reading homework. Children must read at least five times a week at home and reading journals should be signed by an adult and brought into school on Mondays. Reading books can be changed at any time. We will begin to send home spelling homework during term 1 and Maths homework from term 2.
PE will be on Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons but PE kit should be in school all week, including warmer kit when we go outdoors in colder weather.
Our Year Group information booklets set out in more detail our expectations.
We are always looking for parents and carers to support us by volunteering to read in school, help out on projects or offer support in their areas of expertise. Please do talk to a member of staff if you have any time to spare.
We look forward to a wonderful Year 2 and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any queries.
