Year 2

Picture 1

Welcome to the Year 2 class page!

 

 

You will find lots of important information about our class on this page. Below is a snap-shot of what we have been getting up to! 

We are a class of 16 children, our teacher is Mr Barnes and our teaching assistant is Miss Quarry.

 

A reminder that parents can also keep up to date with their child's academic achievements via Earwig (https://earwig.uk.com/). 

As part of our topic we visited South Lakes Safari Zoo. All of the children had a fantastic time and were able to develop their knowledge and understanding of different animals. 

This half term we have been getting ready for our trip to the zoo. The children each completed a design plan for their chosen animal. They planned out their design, their aim, what they may need to make their clay animal. Then using different coloured modelling clay the children created their individual designs.

As part of our Art work this half term we are learning all about famous artists. Today we were learning about the famous Russian painter Wassilly Kandinsky. His most famous painting was of concentric circles. Therefore, we decided to create some of our own, all of which were extremely colourful and fabulous!

 

Year 2 National Curriculum Tests (SATs)

 

Year 2 children will be taking the national curriculum tests (commonly called SATs) in May 2019. These tests can be done on any date in May.
.
The tests are not qualifications and don’t affect your child’s future options in school. The results are an opportunity to compare pupils nationally to ensure schools are helping pupils to master the basics in English and Mathematics,
and make progress. They are also an important tool to help teachers identify pupils who may need additional support, and make sure this is put in place as early as possible.

 

Your child will sit the following tests:

 

  • English Reading: 2 papers: short text and questions; longer text with separate questions
  • Mathematics: 2 papers: arithmetic; mathematical reasoning
  • English grammar, punctuation and spelling (optional):2 papers: spelling; punctuation and grammar (including vocabulary)
