Welcome to Year Two!
We have four classes in our year group, each with a class teacher and supported by a teaching assistant.
In Year 2 we aim to provide a stimulating and exciting curriculum, to challenge and develop the children’s knowledge and skills, building on their previous learning. We encourage both individual and collaborative learning and ensure our teaching meets the needs of all children. There is a real emphasis on developing social skills, questioning, behaviours and motivation to empower all children, to become lifelong learners.
A high priority is to allow children to gain independence and the necessary skills to allow a smooth transition to their junior school. As a school with many children with English as an additional language, care is taken to ensure that children are given the necessary vocabulary and grammar, for both written and oral English.
We work closely with parents, not only to ensure that their children enjoy, achieve and succeed but in also providing guidance on how to support children’s learning at home. High attendance is crucial to aid your children’s progression.
