Welcome to our class page. We are a Year 2 class eager to share our learning and achievements, so please check our page regularly to explore and celebrate these with us throughout our school year.
As we welcome the New Year, we also welcome new learning. Over the next two terms our theme ‘Time Travellers’ will see us travel back in time to explore our history. First we will be travelling back to Victorian England, inspired by David Walliams’ newest text ‘The Ice Monster’. I wonder what we’ll discover on our learning journey…
Each day we will have dedicated time to develop key skills within our curriculum, from taught to applied sessions. These will include guided reading and comprehension, handwriting, maths mastery and times tables. These sessions will allow us to deepen our knowledge and understanding of these key skills, ready to apply these to our wider learning.
Year 2 – End of Key Stage 1
Year 2 is a pivotal year in Primary School, an end of Key Stage 1 whilst ensuring we are prepared for Key Stage 2. This therefore means Key Stage 1 SATs. This year we are lucky to have a dedicated Year 2 class, which allows us to readily prepare for such events. We do not want the Key Stage 1 SATs to be a means of ‘stress’ and a time of worry. We approach these as ‘special quizzes’ for the children, a time for them to showcase and celebrate what they have learnt and what they know. Please see the attached document to explore the end of Key Stage 1 targets. These targets are what the children are assessed against throughout the year.
