Welcome to Year 2!
In Year 2, we are the oldest children in the infants. This means we work hard to be role models for the younger children in Foundation and Year 1. We learn through practical activities using a range of equipment, drama and building our independent learning skills. We are split between two classes – Butterworth and Rosen. As a year group, we spend lots of time together, playing together at break and lunch as well as during PE and Learning Focus lessons.
Following on from Year 1, the focus on spelling and reading continues into Year 2. As well as further developing our word reading and recognising common exception words, we look at the wider grammar and punctuation rules as well as developing our reading comprehension skills.
Each term, our learning is led by our ‘Learning Focus’. This means that in all lessons, we are able to make learning links to all other areas to the curriculum. We work together in our corridor with Year 1 and throughout the year, we have joint celebrations, trips and performances! In the Summer term, the children are assessed on their Maths, Writing and Reading skills through SATS and teacher assessment.
The documents below details some of the skills and topics that are taught each term.
