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.
Children in Year 2 continue to access Read Write Inc phonics as necessary. Those children who complete the Read Write Inc phonics scheme go on to take part in daily Guided Reading sessions. Children are also taught through whole Class Reading.
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.
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.
The long term plan for Year 2 subjects other than Maths and English can be seen below:
