Welcome to Year 2
The Year 2 team consists of Mr. Small and Mrs. Rutter
In year 2, Our learning becomes a little bit more formalised, but it is still topic related. We base our literacy and maths on our topic theme where possible. Phonics takes place daily as does handwriting practice, which is now fully cursive.
We have lots of craft activities and take our learning outside as often as we can.
Music is a strong theme throughout the week, used to support many lessons and activities from story telling, to tidying up! Structured music teaching takes place on a Wednesday morning with Mrs. Dennis.
Year 2 visit Forest School on a Wednesday morning with Mr Howard, Mrs Barker and Mrs David.
PE takes place twice a week and in the Autumn term we have received dance lessons from Emma. After Christmas we will be going for weekly swimming sessions at Studley swimming pool. Please ensure your children have PE kits suitable for indoor and outdoor sports and fit correctly.
During Topic time we will be covering stories including The Cats of Tiffany Street and later will be learning all about Florence Nightingale and the human body.
Children are able to change their reading books daily during snack time. This is the childs responsibilty and allows them to develop choice and independence.
