Welcome to Year 2
Our class teachers are Miss Bennett in Class 2B and Mrs Edge in Class 2E.
Mrs Melarangi and Mrs Newton, our additional teachers provides small group support across year 2.
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Speed and additional support Assistants Miss Borchert and Miss Robinson.
Reading is a very important part of Year 2. We read twice with our teachers every week. We love to read at home with our families and complete reading homework based on our understanding of each book. We also visit our school library every Tuesday to choose a new book.
We love Maths and we often take Maths homework home to build on our learning from our daily lessons. We also have weekly spelling and times table tests, so any extra support at home will be very helpful!
“In Year 2, we cover a range of topics. In History, we develop our ‘sense of time’ by learning about famous people from the past, particularly focusing on ‘Heroes’ locally, nationally and globally. These include famous people such as Florence Nightingale and local hero, Kitty Wilkinson. We also learn about important British events such as World War 1.”
“In Geography, we learn about our city of Liverpool and compare life in the UK with a very difference locality (Kenya, Africa). We also develop our map skills, learning the four points of a compass and carrying out some fieldwork to broaden our understanding. We learn about Computing and also carry out special Art and DT projects with our teachers, as well as Music and PE lessons with specialist teachers and coaches.”
