Welcome to Year 2
The Class Teacher is Mrs Pettit and the class Teaching Assistant is Miss Henson.
In Year 2, the children continue the exciting and inspiring learning from Year 1. As part of our Catholic ethos, the children live, love and learn in the Light of Christ by following the Christian values. This creates a nurturing school environment where children can thrive in their learning.
In English the children continue to develop their reading, writing and fluency skills through a focus on different texts. Poems, such as, The Owl and The Pussycat are studied and at the end of the topic the children are able to confidently perform the poem to parents.
In Maths, we follow the White Rose Maths Scheme and the children learn through investigations and exploration activities to develop their maths fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills.
In History, the children learn about ‘The Great Fire of London’ and use their knowledge to design and make a burning building. The children also learn about the lives of significant individuals from History which include Samuel Pepys, Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Katherine Johnson.
In Science, the children develop their knowledge, observational and investigative skills to understand the world around them more.
In Geography, the children build on their knowledge of countries of the world whilst studying the seasons and the journey of food. They also have the opportunity to discover the wonders of our local town.
