About Year 2

Hello. My name is Miss Sterling and I would like to welcome you to Year 2.

 

Year 2 is an extremely important year for all pupils. We continue to build upon the basic key skills taught in Year 1 and focus on deepening children’s understanding of the key concepts in Reading, Writing and Maths. During the Summer term pupils are assessed in Reading, Writing and Maths.

YEAR 2

In English, we study a range of text types, including adventure stories such as Peter Pan, stories by Julia Donaldson and traditional tales such as Jack and the Beanstalk. We love putting our own twists on the stories once we have learned them. We also begin to look at the grammatical features of writing more closely. In Mathematics we spend time learning to add and subtract two digit numbers, developing an understanding of multiplication and learning to tell the time. This all helps to make sure that we understand the key skills of mental arithmetic by the time our children leave Year Two.

 

Our foundation subjects are taught through the IPC. The Year 2 IPC units are fun and exciting and provide cross curricular links. Many units have a focus on science which provides us with the many opportunities to put on a white coat and become scientists! We love conducting experiments, practising fair tests and predicting outcomes. Each week, year two also enjoy playing a range of musical instruments with a specialist music teacher.
