Welcome to Year 2
I am looking forward to getting to know you and working together so that we have a very exciting and productive year. I hope that your child enjoys the new challenges and approaches to learning that Year 2 has to offer.
Learning in Year 2
The Year 2 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Year 1. The children will have a more formal learning environment in Year 2 but they will continue to learn through exciting topics so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners. The Year 2 Termly Planning Grids and Termly Information Letters are available here on the website. These will give you an outline of the teaching and learning experiences your child will discover each term.
How can parents support learning?
Year 2 is an important year for learning; it is the year when children should become competent and confident in all areas, but particularly in reading, writing and maths. To ensure that the children become the best that they can be, it is important that support in all three areas is being provided at home as well as at school. This may include: listening to your child read at home, helping them with any homework, sharing and practising weekly spellings or chanting the times tables.
If you have any questions or queries about your child’s progress, please don’t hesitate to come and see me. I look forward to a happy and exciting year filled with learning!
