Who works here?

Our Teacher is Miss Gibson-Gibbs and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs McKie. They are fun and always happy to help us during lessons and playtimes.

What is your classroom like?

Our classroom is ace! The sun shines through our windows all day, which means we have a bright warm classroom. We have many areas which have resources in to help us with our learning. In our maths area, there are Numicon resources, cubes, number lines and hundred squares to help us. Our Literacy area has a sound chart to help us with our reading and spelling. The laptop area, which we use during Guided Reading, we use to research the topic we are learning about. The reading area is filled with exciting stories and interesting information books for us to read.

What do we do in Year 2?

We learn, we try our best and we have fun!

Every morning we answer questions that Miss Gibson-Gibbs has given us in our books. Then, we move into our Literacy and RWI groups. Next, we learn about RE until it is time for Guided Reading. After that, we go to the hall for collective worship. This is where we listen to stories, share good news and practise singing hymns. At 10:45am we have play time and at 11am every day we have Maths lessons.

In the afternoon we have Writing, Topic, PE and Music lessons. On Wednesday afternoons, we have Godly Play with Mr Coyle.

What subjects does your year group cover?

In Year 2, we follow the National Curriculum and we use the International Primary Curriculum to help us learn this. This year, we will be learning about Living things, light and dark and how the world turns and moves around the sun. To see more about what Year 2 will be learning, please see the curriculum map.

What can Year 2 children do at home to help their school work?

Year 2 children can read books at home to get even better at reading. They can practise their RWI sounds at home and try to write sentences with these sounds in. The children can also use Mathletics to consolidate their learning in Maths and compete against other children, in the school and around the world. Finally, the children can do their homework at home and bring it back to school every Monday.
