Year 2

Year 2

Miss Metcalfe is our Year 2 teacher. Year 2 is support by Mrs Baxter. In Year 2 the children become much more confident in reading, writing and numeracy and are encouraged to become more independent learners.

The children learn through applying skills to lots of practical activities, and develop numeracy skills by using a variety of mathematical equipment to help with adding, subtracting and counting. We also begin to examine multiplication and division.

In Literacy we will be looking at writing and following instructions. To help with this, the children will be making their own jam sandwiches! We will also be working hard to improve sentence structure and phonic knowledge.

Science is really exciting in Year 2; we develop investigation skills through exploring different topics. The children learn about how to keep our bodies healthy, creating an electrical circuit and how materials change when they are heated.

We study several different topics in Year 2 which helps to make learning in all subjects interesting and creative.

We hope to have lots of fun in Year 2 whilst we work hard to be ready for Key Stage 2!
