Welcome everyone to Year 2! My name is Mrs Farrier, I am the class teacher and Miss Hale is our teaching assistant.
Year 2 is an extremely exciting year and I can assure you, your child is going to have lots of fun whilst working hard and making excellent progress. I am so excited to take your children on a learning journey throughout the year and work alongside fabulous parents. We aim to provide the balance of a challenging and stimulating curriculum which enthuses the children to become creative, hardworking, independent learners. ALL children are challenged in their lessons and children regularly have the opportunity to review their own learning. We believe that it is important for children to enjoy school and enjoy learning and this will be something we aim to achieve. We are extremely fortunate to have two classrooms to use. One of our classrooms is the main teaching room and the other classroom our ‘Linked Learning Room’ is for continued provision. It is very important that Year 2 children still have the opportunity to take charge of their own learning and create their own learning activities. Our Learning Environment is very important to us in Year 2 and it promotes happiness and hard workers.
‘A great classroom environment comes from the heart. It’s built on love, laughter, achievement and a feeling that everyone belongs.’
End of Year Assessments (SATS)
It is a statutory requirement that children are assessed at the end of Key Stage 1. These assessments will take place throughout May. Throughout the year we will be working extremely hard to help your child achieve their potential and we hope you will support us in doing so. We do not require you to do any additional work with your children at home to prepare them for SATS, we will take care of this in school with our daily learning and teaching.
Year 2 Long Term Plan
Throughout the year, we teach a variety of stimulating and exciting topics to engage the children in their learning. We aim for all pupils to develop a lifelong love of learning and develop the basic skills and knowledge to prepare our children for Year 3.
