To class Y2
Meet your teachers
Welcome to Year 2! I am looking forward to meeting you all or continuing our learning journey together. If we have been in a class together before. There will be lots of hands on fun to consolidate our Year 1 learning and really understand the basics. We will then move on to our Y2 learning. It is essential we do lots of reading and maths at home as this year is our SATS year! I can’t wait to see your progress and achievements.
I have been a teacher in KS1 for four years. Out of school, I like going to gigs to listen to music and I also play in a local netball team.
Our classroom will be located in the KS1 building and
children wil enter and leave through the main door at the front of this. In a morning children will need to line up on the playground and will be collected by their teacher. To help you with your learning, we will send home weekly tasks for you to complete to earn dojos. There are also lots of other ways that you can earn dojos by following the ‘Sandhill Way’. As you achieve the target points on the dojo chart you will receive your reward.
We will have PE twice a week and on these days you will either need to bring plasters to cover your earrings or leave your earrings at home. We will send updates about what we are learning through our class dojo so please check regularly.
Areas of Learning
In Year 2 the children will continue to develop and learn in the Key Stage 1 curriculum, developing further skills and knowledge to become more independent and resilient. We will focus on early reading and phonic skills and would really appreciate if you could support this at home too.
In Geography we will begin by studying the area local to school and then investigating the Arctic and finally, the British seaside!
In Science, we will be learning how to be scientists and develop our enquiry skills by observing carefully, measuring and asking questions about things that interest us. We will learn all about plants and animals in their habitats, the earth and space and about the human body. You will also get to spend time with the WPT sports coaches who will teach you lots of different
skills in PE.
In computing you will begin to learn how to write basic codes and how to keep safe when using the internet.
There will so much more to enjoy learning alongside these subjects, as well as getting really confident in reading, writing and maths. We can’t wait to start your learning journey with you.
