Year 2 Teachers: Miss Longman & Mrs Jackson
Teaching Assistants: Mrs J
In Year 2, their last year of Key Stage 1, the children take their learning a step further and become lots more independent in all that they do - from accessing resources they need to working independently as much as possible. This is always helped by our becoming such fantastic readers by the time we get to Year 2 that we can much more independently access our learning. We learn to work better within our group 'teams' and do lots of sharing and group working.
Our mornings are usually filled with English and Maths as well as progressing to learning spelling rules which follow on from the many alternative sounds that we learned in Phonics in Reception and Year 1 and all sorts of new grammar. The children can come home and tell their parents all sorts of new things like what a subordinating conjunction is and what different pronouns are; their learning journey has begun in earnest, ready to jump into Year 3 and Key Stage 2.
Afternoons are taken up with Geography, History, Science, PE and Music and all our days are dotted with extra learning about PSHE to ensure a balanced and fun-filled curriculum
