Welcome to Year 2
In Year 2 the class teachers are Miss Eacott (2E), Mr Challis (2C) and Mrs Stanney (2S).
Our teaching assistants are Miss Hall, Mrs Campling and Miss Ella.
We are also supported by Mr Dennis, Mr Otter, Miss Greatorex, Miss Marron and Miss Adamson.
Year 2 can feel like a big change for the children - they are expected to become even more independent and are taught new learning skills in preparation for their move into KS2.
Children's development is assessed by the class teachers throughout the year. These assessments are then supported at the end of the year by a more formal test, which is delivered nationally.
All Y2 children should enter through the outer door between Reception classes and the Studio. Children walk past the IT suite and on to their classes.

The children will take part in a number of different Literacy sessions. They do Reading Workshop sessions as well as phonics following the Read Write Inc programme. The children will also be starting 'Active English' to help them with their grammar.
The children will be taught a variety of text types during the Summer term, including; narrative, non-chronological reports and adverts. They will also continue to develop skills in punctuation and be supported in developing sentence structure.
Throughout the year the children will be covering various aspects of numeracy, starting with place value and working through calculations, statistics, measure and shape. The children will take part in a range of activities to enhance their mathematical knowledge and skill.
We encourage the Year 2 children to learn their times tables and number bonds, using 'Active Maths' to support this learning in school. Any extra support at home is greatly appreciated.
