In Year 2 we feel it is vital for children to develop their independence in all areas especially academic and social in preparation for their transition into Key Stage 2. This is encouraged through children taking more responsibility for their belongings, communications and peer interactions. In the classroom we support this by teaching in whole class groups, where children are expected to listen to instructions and complete activities, with a growing level of independence.
Our lessons are engaging, meaningful and fun and we endeavour to provide many hands on experiences with the right balance of challenge and support. Children are actively involved in a range of memorable learning experiences which promote creativity, independence and enjoyment. This includes the use of the woodland area within our school grounds.
Although our timetable consists of daily maths, English, phonics and guided reading lessons we feel that other subjects such as science, history, R.E, I.C.T, geography, Art/DT and music hold equal prominence to the success of our children and is reflected in our timetable.
Reading books are changed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and we encourage children to read every night. We also have a vast selection of books in our reading corner that the children have regular access to as we believe that reading enhances vocabulary and stimulates imagination and curiosity. We believe it is vital for learning to be fun and engaging, therefore we regularly play fun, if not a little competitive, times tables/spelling games to inspire a love of learning.
Our PE session is on a Thursday afternoon and children will experience a range of physical activities.
If you require further information please contact the school office and in the meantime, keep an eye on our page for regular pictures following our journey through Year 2!
