Inspiring and motivating our children
to be the best they can be

Summer 2 2024

The staff that you will be working with are Miss Handley (2T), Miss Kavanagh (2L) and Miss Johnston (2P) as well as Mrs Caines, Miss Darnbrough and Miss Patterson. On a Monday afternoon, you will be taught by either Mrs Littlejones, Señora Cameron or Mrs Davies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Please can children come to school in PE kits on Mondays (athletics) and Tuesdays (tennis). 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please also make sure that children bring a water bottle and their book bag (with their reading books and reading record) to school every day

Please view our Curriculum Meeting 2023 tab which has videos that share information about Year 2. This will include information on homework, assessment and daily routines. 

This half-term our history topic is “How and why has transport changed over time?" 

Our science topic this half-term is humans and animals

Please see at the bottom of this page our Summer maths KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts). Key Instant Recall Facts are what underpins much of the mental maths knowledge that children are required to know throughout their learning journey. KIRFs are crucial for ensuring that a child is able to build confidence and fluency with a wide variety of mathematical topics. By being able to reference Key Instant Recall Facts on a regular basis, they’ll also find the national curriculum to be significantly more accessible. 

Every week, our weekly timetable will be available at the bottom of this page.
