Year 2: Scientists
Welcome to the Scientist class page!
Our class teacher is Mrs Hardy and Miss Lloyd is our Teaching Assistant.
We will be updating this page at the start of term with lots of useful information about what we will be learning, and what you can do to support your child at home.
Year 2 is very important year for your children to develop their reading for fluency. Please read with your child as much as possible at home to support them and us. As we are encouraging reading for pleasure, there is no requirement for you to fill in a reading record – all we ask is that you make the most of opportunities for shared reading with your child!
In English, we will continue to use the Talk for Writing scheme to develop our writing, we will look at spelling and grammar rules a lot as we progress through the year. We will have daily reading practice sessions also.
In Maths, we will be securing the children’s knowledge up to 100 and possibly even beyond! Counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s helps us with many tasks in Year 2 so if you could practice this at home that would be beneficial for your child.
We have many curriculum subjects to cover which include Geography, History, PSHE, Computing, RE, PE, Music, Science, Art, and DT, so our days are extremely busy! Our DT sessions will sometimes be held at forest school so we will let you know on a termly basis when your child requires an outdoor kit. We will also inform you of our PE day at the beginning of each term.
We are looking forward to seeing the progress your children make with us throughout the year!
