Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

My name is Miss Quinlan and I am the Year 2 Class teacher. Mrs Harper is the Teaching Assistant.

In Year 2 we work hard every day learning new and exciting things. We explore a new topic each half term and use our role play areas to link in with our topic. We also have the opportunity to go on a one night residential to Fox Howl where we have the chance to explore the forest, make dens, sing songs around the camp fire and experience learning outdoors in a fantastic environment.

 

Literacy and Maths

We have Literacy, Letters and Sounds and Maths every day and enjoy using ipads and games to support our learning.

In Literacy we look at a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry throughout the year. We continue to develop our handwriting and are working towards a cursive script. The children take part in weekly guided reading sessions and also read indivdually each week.

In Maths we build on the Maths skills we have learnt in Year 1 and use them in a variety of contexts. The children regularly explore problem solving and reasoning activities.

Afternoon Learning

In the afternoons we focus our learning Science, ICT, R.E., History, Geography, Music, P.E and PSHCE. We deliver a topic lead approach, linking the theme to these subjects wherever possible.  Each week we have a Specialist P.E. teacher, Mr McGreal, who leads a PE lesson. We will also complete Art and Design and Technology units, which support our topics.

 

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Mrs Quinlan
