Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

 

Class Teacher: Mr. McHugh

 

All teachers will post information about their class to the 'Latest News'. Updates will also be sent via 'The School App'. Instructions on how to download our app, can be found under the 'Parents' tab. 

 

Photos are displayed for each class in the 'Gallery'. These can be found under the 'Gallery' tab. Photos will be accompanied with a written description of what the children have been doing in class that week. 

 

Curriculum for Wales

 

The four purposes of the new curriculum for Wales inform our teaching. Our learning experiences enable our pupils to be:

 

  • ambitious, capable learners who undertake research and evaluate critically what they find and are ready to learn throughout their lives
  • enterprising, creative contributors who give of their energy and skills so that other people will benefit and are ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens who show their commitment to the sustainability of the planet and are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world
  • healthy, confident individuals who have the skills and knowledge to manage everyday life as independently as they can and are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

 

Literacy

 

We understand the importance of literacy skills and their use within the wider world.  As part of your child's literacy lessons, they will be learning to spell words relating to specific patterns each week in class.  We have listened to your feedback and have made available lists of words that you can study with your child at home. The lists compiled are words that your child will come across as part of their reading in school and are age appropriate. The spellings being focused on each week can be found under 'Homework'. Children will be tested each week on the spellings in focus. 

 

RE

 

In RE, we follow the Come and See religious education programme. This term we will be exploring new beginnings, other faiths and Advent.

 

PE

 

PE will take place every Friday. Please do not wear your kit to school. Instead, bring in shorts/leggings/tracksuit and a t-shirt. The children will also need trainers and in the colder months, a fleece or sweatshirt. Earrings will need to be removed or covered with tape before the children come to school.  

 

 

Expectations

 

Bug Club

It is expected that the children use Bug Club to support to developing their reading skills at home. Books have been assigned to each child and can be accessed using under the 'Useful Links' section below. 

 

Mathletics

Each child has been given a Mathletics log on and password. Tasks need to be completed every week at home.

 

Muddy Mondays

Every child will need to bring in wellies, waterproof trousers and a waterproof coat with a hood every Monday for exploring our woodland area.

Homework

This may be online or in the form of a  project to complete. Children must also access Bug Club and Mathletics on a weekly basis.
