Welcome to Year 2. Whether your child is in Cherry Class or Willow Class they will be sure to have an exciting year with us. We will be working hard to make sure that they are ready to join KS2 following the SATs tests, whilst thinking about how to uphold our school values of Love, Service, Belonging and Thankfulness. We are continuing to work through the Power Maths scheme and will be learning how to produce different types of writing such as poems, traditional tales with a twist, instructions and animal adventure stories in English. We will be covering lots of interesting topics like Animals including Humans in Science, Explorers in History and Coastal Areas in Geography. We are lucky enough to be working with sports coaches from B.R.F.C. in our P.E. sessions and a specialist teacher in Music.Reading is a real priority for us in Year 2. We will be encouraging children to read books from school at home and we would like to take this opportunity to ask if you could enjoy reading to your child in order to ensure that they develop a real love of reading. Your child will need to remember to bring their reading books to school each day and we would like to remind you that the school library is open every night after school for you to visit with your child. Thank you for your continued support with your child’s learning.
