Welcome to Year 2!
Year 2 is Led by Miss Ray and supported by Miss Henry-Lowe and Miss Nunes.
This is a very exciting and important year for the children at Prendergast Vale as they are approaching the end of key stage 1 and have their ever important SATs at the end of the year. We have a rich, immersive curriculum which supports creativity, independence and cross-curricular links.
Our Topics this year are:
- The Great Fire of London
- Incredible India
- Amazing Animals
- Sun, Sea and Sand
Each term, there is an author focus, in which children will experience and engage with a variety of reading and writing genres. They will deepen their understanding of a text and use this as a basis for their independent writing. There are high expectations in Year 2 and children are expected to write in the cursive script.
We build upon their phonic knowledge and support transcription skills by embedding high quality teaching of spelling, punctuation and grammar.
In Maths, Year 2 have a hands on approach. They learn through practical activities and begin to explore a wide range of strategies to help them solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems.
We have school trips every half term which support our enriching curriculum and help provide a stimulus and purpose to our learning.
