Welcome to Year Two!

Meet the team:

Mrs Temple is our class teacher and Miss Sirr is our assistant teacher. We are lucky to also have help from Mrs Humphries, Mrs Harper and Mrs Iggulden.

Our Patron Saint is St Francis. We celebrate our Saint’s day on the 4th October.

R.E.

R.E. is at the core of our curriculum. We do 2 hours of RE every week, a child led liturgy every Friday and four other sessions of collective worship including Mass or celebration every Thursday. Please look at the dates of Mass and celebration for the term. Do come and join us for Mass and celebration on a Thursday and we would also love for you to join us for our child led liturgy at 2pm on a Friday.

English & Maths

In Year Two we have a daily English lesson and we read every day – please make sure your child remembers their book bag and reading record everyday.  The children are encouraged to use their best handwriting at ALL times and to practise every day!

In our Maths lessons we continue to develop our skills in calculating and problem solving using all four operations.  By the end of Year Two we will all know our 2s, 5s and 10 times tables.

P.E.

P.E. takes place every Friday with our specialist sports coach. We have two PE sessions on a Friday, one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. In each session we focus on a different skill. Please ensure that your child has a full and appropriate kit each week as without this, they will not be able to participate in the lesson. Full kit should include trainers for outdoor use and blue or black shorts/ tracksuit bottoms.

Topic and Rotation

Every Wednesday afternoon we will be joining forces with Year 1 and taking part in small, group projects involving many different subject areas such as Cookery, Design Technology and  History.

Science

We do Science on a Tuesday afternoon with Mrs Harper.

Themes

We learn about lots of exciting topics in Year Two. These include The Fire of London, Guy Fawkes, Animals and their habitats, Queen Victoria and lots of others. Your children will enjoy telling you what we are learning about at the moment!
