Year Two - Mary Seacole
Welcome to Year 2
Your Year 2 teacher is Miss Francis, along with Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Dobson who are our teaching assistants.
This year we are named after a very inspiring medical hero, Mary Seacole. We will be learning all about her and what she achieved during her life.
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 Key stage 2!
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.
Throughout the week the children will be learning a range of different subjects, Phonics, Reading, English and Maths will be taught on a daily basis. Science, History, Geography, P.E, DT and other foundation subjects will be taught in the afternoons.
PE will be on a Tuesday and a Thursday (with EitC). PE kits should be brought into school on a Monday and will be sent home every Friday to be washed and returned for the following week, to ensure we are keeping to Covid 19 guidelines.
Reading books: Due to Covid 19 we will be only sending reading books home once a week. This will be done on a Friday and the books need to be returned on a Tuesday, allowing us to clean/quarantine them. 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.
Spellings: Every Monday a list of phonic sounds or spellings will be sent home for your child to learn through the week ready for phonics activities during the week. We will also be looking for the words within your child’s everyday writing. These are for you to keep and not to be returned to school.
