Ready to Teach, Ready to Learn
Mrs Ward, Mr Carroll and Miss Catford
We offer challenges and support to all children to ensure they reach their potential in all lessons.
We encourage the children to explore the world with all their senses and to begin to ask questions about their learning and the world around them.
In Year 2 we have a positive learning attitude and work hard to achieve our personal goals and targets. We all try to make the right 'Choices' and give a 100% in everything we do.
Warren Berger: 'Knowing the answers will help you in school, but knowing how to question will help you in life.'
During May, all Year 2 children take the end of Key Stage national tests (‘SATs’). These tests are designed to check that children in all schools are making progress. The tests are a tool for teachers to help them measure your child’s performance and identify their needs as they move into key stage 2. They also allow teachers to see how your child is performing against national expected standards.
To prepare for the tests children will be practicing and getting support throughout the school day.
Can we ask to support your child at home by completing the following:
Children will be also be able to attend our extra SATS club after school which will start in February. Watch this space for the exact start date.
Year 2 SATS will take place across the 4 weeks of May 2022. Please can we ask that you do not book any holidays for your child during this time. Year 2 is an important year for your child's education.
Children who complete their reading and spellings homework will receive a certificate and have entry into our termly draw.
Those with 100% attendance for the week will be entered into a weekly draw to win a prize.
For every time a child reads they will gain a raffle ticket. At the end of each half term the raffle will be drawn to win a book prize.
YEAR 2 TIMELINE
During the Autumn term, we had lots of fun in our lessons.
Our Spring term was very different this year as we spent most of learning at home. Here is some of the things we did using SeeSaw as our learning platform and when we returned to school.
We are back at school for the summer term and things are exciting already. We have made an assembly for all of the school to watch about our 'Choices' been growing plants and learning lots of other wonderful things in class. Look at our photos.
