Meet the Y2 team:
Mr Ainsworth is our class teacher and Miss Sirr is our assistant teacher. Our Patron Saint is St Francis. We celebrate our Saint’s day on the 4th October.
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.
We have two PE sessions each week. children come to school on their PE day in full PE uniform.
Full PE uniform 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.
We do Science every week with Mrs Heathfield who is our science specialist.
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!
