Year 2

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Dr. Seuss

Throughout the year the subjects we will cover are English, Maths, Science, Religious Education, Computing, Physical Education and Topic. The children will benefit from specialist teachers for Creative Arts.

What learners need to be successful

In Year 2, we expect pupils to be able to work as a team. We encourage children to adopt a positive attitude to learning. When we have fun and work together we are successful learners.

Pupils need to bring their book bags every day. This should contain their reading book and reading record.

Children are expected to read regularly at home with an adult. Please ensure that you fill in your child’s reading record to help us track their reading. Extending learning books will also be sent out weekly.

A minimum of one homework activity needs to be completed each week and a main literacy activity is completed over each month.

How pupils’ learning will be assessed

Children in Year 2 will be assessed throughout the year both formatively (being given feedback for improvement) and summatively (being given a level). This is to help them prepare for the Key Stage 1 SATs in May. Pupils will sit a reading, writing, spelling and maths paper.

Achievement will be discussed at parents’ evenings throughout the year. SATs results will be attached to the summer term report.

Children’s work will be marked regularly and children are encouraged to respond to feedback written on Post-it notes.

Learning materials

Children have their own individual logins for Purplemash and Mathletics.

How parents can help with their child’s learning

Parents can read with their child daily and ask questions about the story to help children think about what’s happening. Please encourage your child to complete their extended learning activity. Children will be expected to practice their spellings on a weekly basis. If parents require any support or have any questions with regards to their child’s learning, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 2 team.
