Welcome to Year 2
Year 2 – Miss Hughes
In Year 2 we are going to be working extremely hard this year. We are working on the new national curriculum objectives for year 2. We are very busy working through each objective and achieving all of our targets. Throughout the next academic year will be getting ready for our SATS tests in June.
Our English work includes looking at fiction and non-fiction writing such as story writing, character profiles, instructional writing, report writing and sentence building activities. We will be focusing on our spelling this year as well as building on SPAG skills. To promote reading at home we are now sending reading books home with the year 2 children to read at home with adults. We follow the Letters and Sounds phonic scheme.
During Maths we will be focusing on the calculations policy for the first term paying close attention to written and mental methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as well as shape and space, problem solving, money and data handling.
