Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to Year 2, a fast paced year full of new responsibilities and exciting challenges. Our ultimate aim is to give children the confidence and resiliance for moving into Key Stage 2. We want children to become independent learners, all within a fun environment. 

The children have settled into their classes and have begun an exciting year. The children have already enjoyed different topics within writing such as 'Spooky Stories', and  'Winter Wonderland Stories' and are currently learning about 'The Great Fire of London' in History. This is a thoroughly enjoyable topic and the children are already very enthusiastic about it, many having already done their own independent research. The children have also produced some great art work using different mediums, creating a fantastic display in our classrooms.

This term we have been particularly focussing on our presentation and handwriting, with the aim to be joining all the letters correctly. You may have heard your child talking about the 'presentation pencil' for maths and writing, the children receive this special pencil when they have tried really hard. 

Thank you for your encouragement and continued support at home particularly using the online resources, we have had some great feedback about them and the children have really enjoyed using them. Please feel free to direct any questions you have to your class teacher. We look forward to working with you during the year.
