Welcome to our Class 2 Page!
Miss Roper and Mrs Richardson are working extremely hard alongside all children to ensure that all of the superstar learners in class two make great progress in all areas of the curriculum this year.
As the final year in key stage one, year 2 is a very important year where the children consolidate and build on their skills as independent, resilient learners in preparation for their journey into key stage two.
This is the year we prepare the children to complete SATs assessments. Attached in the useful links section is a summary of what the children will be assessed against which was shared with parents at the Key Stage One SATs meeting. Through enjoyable daily reading, maths and writing lessons, children will develop and refine a broad range of skills so that they are totally prepared for each assessment and feel confident to achieve. These assessments will form part of our teacher judgement of your child’s attainment at the end of the year. You can support your child in their progress by reading at home and completing weekly homework together.
Class 2 loves to read! Your child will read and complete reading activities every day in reading sessions, Read Write Inc phonics sessions and through other subjects. We are working hard as a school to encourage children to read at least three times per week at home and record this in their reading journal. Those who do will receive a raffle ticket, have their photograph displayed on our reading celebration wall and our star reader of the week (the child who reads the most) will receive a prize, a certificate and an individual photo on our celebration wall for the week! Class 2 are currently reading Don’t look in this book!.
Maths and English
Children receive high quality maths and English teaching daily at a level which is appropriate to their needs and as part of a learning journey. Sometimes this learning is linked to our topic and at other times, it is taught discreetly to develop a particular skill. Our working walls are updated regularly so pop in and see what we have been working on this week!
This term, class 2 have kickstarted their new school year with their topic The Animal Kingdom! We have visited Yorkshire Wildlife Park to gain first hand experiences of animals in their habitats.
Important Dates and Information
PE – Our current PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. We recommend that your child has their PE kit at school all week in order to participate in both of these sessions and that they have both an indoor and outdoor PE kit.
Reading Journal check – Reading journals are checked by Miss Roper and Mrs Richardson. This is when we award star reader certificates, take photographs of our super readers and celebrate all of your reading efforts at home.
Any questions, please come and see Miss Roper.
