What is your classroom like?
Year 2 is a fun, friendly and calm place to learn and build friendships. Our bright and warm classroom is located at the very end of the school nearest the Key Stage 1 playground. It has large windows and is full of welcoming smiles. Children in Year 2 have ownership of the space which is filled with their artwork and writing. We have a very open room and a large carpet area for children to sit and feel comfortable. We also have a huge interactive white board to aide children’s learning. The reading area is filled with our classes’ favourite books and scattered with cushions, blankets and even a mini couch! The children love their classroom, keep it tidy and look after the equipment.
Who works here?
Mrs Wild and Mrs Kunysz are always on hand to help the children make the most of their God given talents and be the best they can be. Mrs Kunysz speaks both English and Polish and loves to read. Mrs Wild enjoys teaching writing and loves getting to know each child’s individual personality. Every adults who works in Year 2 wants the children to feel respected and valued, and, because of this together we have some amazing days learning and creating fabulous memories. Our school mission statement is to Learn, Love and Share and in our class, we ensure everyone lives out those values.
What do we do in Year 2?
What don’t we do! Children learn the skills of reading, writing and maths in our morning sessions- understanding the importance these skills have in all areas. During the afternoon we have RE, theme, Science, PE and handwriting lessons- a packed day! Every day the children brush their teeth after a healthy school lunch and spend quality time together playing outside on our huge playground and field complete with a trim trail for anyone feeling energetic.
What can Year 2 children do at home to help their school work?
Reading at home and completing any homework will always be a huge help towards your child’s education. We advise each child reads at home for 5-10 minutes every day. Talk to your child, tell them stories and play with them. Great social interaction at home will help children develop at school.
