We would like to take the opportunity to welcome you all to Year 2!

The Year 2 Unit is comprised of two Year 2 classes. Our teachers are Mr Barton and Miss Murphy. We are also very fortunate to have the support of Miss Blaylock, Mrs Gallagher, Mrs Lee, Miss Wong and Miss Hamilton who work at different times, across both classes.

Our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from Year 2 and develop a great thirst for learning.  In English we use ‘Talk for Writing’ which has proven to be an excellent way for children to understand our key texts, develop their grammar, speaking and listening skills and build on ideas to write their own innovations of fiction and non-fiction texts. In Maths, we strive to create practical experiences that reinforce children’s learning and take them beyond the classroom so that they can apply their understanding within a real life context. Across our topics we cover both History and Geography objectives that create many opportunities for cross-curricular learning, allowing children to face new, exciting challenges each day that are delivered through carefully planned lessons that address the children’s preferred learning styles as we work across the curriculum.

Towards the end of Year 2 we will be taking the children on a residential. This year we are considering options so the children will experience different places to previous years and the trip can be made cost effective whilst still holding all the benefits and experiences as previous residential. Details of this will be shared with parents.
