Squirrel Class – Welcome to Year 2!
Year 2 children continue their learning journey in Key Stage 1 with a smooth transition involving minimal changes or disruption. They continue into Year 2 with their teacher from Year 1 which we feel benefits them significantly in simply continuing their fantastic learning from where they left off!
In Year 2 children are provided with many opportunities to continue to develop their independence and their sense of responsibility, such as being a School Council Rep or a Class Monitor. Children are allocated their own desk space with a named tray in which to keep their day to day classroom resources for which they are responsible for.
Daily whole-class singing and musical activities continue to play an important role in assisting with Literacy excellence and building confidence, teamwork and resilience ready for their transition into Year 3.
We continue to take part in weekly Forest School trips, have regular outdoor visits within the local community to enhance our understanding of the world around us and enjoy maths mastery both inside and outside of the classroom.
We look forward to welcoming you into Squirrel Class!
