Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 – the class names are St Dorothy (Mrs Della Maestra) and St Rose (Mrs Royce and Mrs Nardini). The staff team is completed by Mrs Hammond, Mrs May and Mrs Sroda.

Year two is a fun and special year. It is the last year of Key Stage One so the children are important role models for the Reception and Year One classes: a responsibility they take very seriously.  We work in partnership with parents and the children make strides in their reading, thinking, writing, and use of number.  They practise and develop a range of key skills that are essential for life and lifelong learning: for example, speaking, listening, and being reflective and creative.

There are exciting, cross-curricular topics which the children really engage with: London’s Burning, Heroes and Heroines as well as Beside the Seaside. At the end of each term the children are set a Challenge to practise the key S=P+A+C+E skills they’ve developed and tie together their learning.  This is followed by an end of topic Celebration.

The children go on a variety of school trips including London and Brighton.  We frequently have visitors and workshops in school to support our learning too.  We lead worships and a prayer service to which parents and carers are welcomed.  In line with the Mission Statement of the school, we aim to provide an experience, which stimulates religious growth and development hand in hand with academic and social progress and an enjoyment of learning.

As you can see Year Two is a fun one to be a part of!

You can find out what we will be learning in class this week here.

Please do not hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher if you have any concerns or aren’t sure how best to help your child with their learning at home.

You can access our latest Curriculum newsletter from this page (under related pages above) and our presentation from the Curriculum Evening (under file downloads above).

If your child did not meet the threshold for the Phonics Screening Check in Year 1 then they will sit the check again in the summer term of Year 2.

We hope your child has a happy and successful year!
