Year Two -Katarina Johnson-Thompson
Welcome to Year 2
Your Year 2 teacher is Miss Francis and Mrs Wilkinson and Miss Williams are our class teaching assistants.
This year we are named after a local inspirational Olympian, Katarina Johnson-Thompson. We will be learning all about her and what she has achieved and what she is currently doing. We will be looking forward to watching and supporting her in the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
In Year 2, we are dedicated to ensuring that your child has the best possible chance of making progress across the National Curriculum, so they are ready for the jump next year to the juniors!
We have an exciting year ahead of us. The children are going to be learning and applying a range of new skills through our English, Maths and Science lessons embedded in our Inquiry-based curriculum. For more subject-specific information please see our Curriculum Page.
The children will start each day with Phonics then moving onto Active Reading. English and Maths lessons will follow each morning. Science, History, Geography, P.E, DT and other foundation subjects will be taught in the afternoons.
PE will be on a Wednesday (with Beth Tweddle Gymnastics) and on a Thursday (with EitC).
Homework: A piece of English and Maths based homework will be given out on Thursday to be completed and returned to class by the following Friday.
Reading books: This year in KS1 we are asking children to bring in their reading book every day, we expect children to be reading their books at home daily. Once your child has read their book if you could sign in their home reading record to allow us to track where they are up to. We will be changing the books once a week. Soon we will be training the children to be able to change their own books when needed and will be inviting parents in change their children’s books with them.
