Welcome to Year 2
The teachers are Miss Chapman and Mrs McGough/Mrs Elliott.
In Year 2 our children are first introduced to swimming lessons in school. We currently swim on a Wednesday (Mrs McGough’s/Mrs Elliott’s Class) and a Thursday (Miss Chapman’s class). For swimming, children require a swimming costume/trunks, a towel and a swimming hat. The swimming hats can be purchased at school for £1.50.
We currently do PE on a Friday morning, although children are required to have their PE kits in school at all times, in case they are involved in sports festivals or tournaments.
Maths homework is handed out every Friday, and is to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Literacy homework is set termly, and can be found in the homework folder on the website. In our timetable we often have additional literacy and numeracy sessions and interventions to help prepare children for our end of Key Stage assessments in May. In the Spring term we host a SAT’s meeting for parents to ensure that parents are aware of the expectations, and how they can support their child with their learning at home.
In school we promote Growth Mindset, encouraging children to take on challenges and take risks with their learning. Below is a link to find out more information about Growth Mindset.
