Welcome to Year Two
Welcome to Year Two! We are two-form entry so have two classes in this year group, both named after authors: Rosen Class are taught by Miss Sue Mathie and Seuss Class are taught by Jacqueline White and James Williams. Year 2 teachers are supported by Sarah Dredge and Steph Colgan. Our classes are also identified by the year group followed by the class teacher’s initials. Y2SM = Rosen Class Y2JW = Seuss Class
We are going to be exploring six exciting topics across the year, which will give the children the opportunity to experience all areas of the wider curriculum. These topics are:
|Autumn 1||Autumn 2||Spring 1||Spring 2||Summer 1||Summer 2|
|Magnificent Monarchs||Coastline||Land Ahoy!||The Secret Garden||Movers and Shakers||Wriggle and Crawl|
During May of the summer term in Year 2 children sit SATS papers - these are statutory tests taken by primary school children, which provide information about your child’s progress compared to children of the same age nationally. The SATS papers focus on the English skills of grammar, spelling, punctuation and comprehension and the Mathematics skills of arithmetic and reasoning. SATS results are shared with parents with the end of year report.
More information about Year 2 SATS is on the following link:www.satspapers.org.uk
You will also be invited, in the Spring Term, to attend a meeting about the SATs. You will have the opportunity to learn more about them, look at past papers and to ask us any questions that you might have.
We use a range of rewards throughout Year 2 from; House points, Star of Week certificates, which are presented in our Celebration Assemblies, and presentation points. We use ClassDojo and Schoolcomms to communicate with parents.
