Hello and welcome to Class Two
We are the Year 2 pupils and the final year in Key Stage 1. By the time the children reach Class Two they will be fully settled into school routines and will have developed many of the skills and attitudes essential to learning.
In Class Two we begin to broaden the scope of the children’s education in preparation for Key Stage 2. We try to help the children make links and spot relationships between different areas of the curriculum and give their learning a context within the world in which they live.
In Mathematics we begin to introduce more formal methods for recording the children’s increasingly complex calculations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; we look at fractions of shape and number, halves, quarters, division and then link this with telling the time.
In English we continue to extend reading and writing in different genres; extending the children’s knowledge of phonics in reading and then introducing more spelling patterns in writing.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
Mrs Burchett and Mrs Lovegrove
