Our teacher is Mr Stilwell, working alongside him is Miss High, our teaching assistant. We want to develop a passion and thirst for learning in Year 2. Across our topics and in Literacy we cover both History and Geography objectives that create many opportunities for cross-curricular learning, creating exciting challenges each day that are delivered through carefully planned lessons that address the children’s learning styles and help develop their curiosity.
In Maths we use Maths No Problem, this programme ensures that all the small steps are taught so that pupils master the maths curriculum through fluency and problem solving.
In Literacy, pupils are split between two programmes, Read Write Inc. and Talk for Writing. Throughout Year 2 we want children to engage in and understand our key texts, develop their grammar, speaking and listening skills and build on ideas to write their own fiction and non-fiction texts.
Towards the end of Year 2, end of Key Stage 1 statutory assessments will take place. Maths, Reading and Writing will be assessed. More information on these tests, commonly known as SAT’s, will be given out in the Spring term.
