Year 2—Parks Class
Welcome to Parks Class
Teaching Team: Ms Burns and Mrs Bassili Support Staff: Mrs Ajeti
Year 2 is an important and exciting year, as we are now top of Key Stage 1 and are getting ready to join Key Stage 2.
Our big target this year is to develop stamina for reading and writing. We will be practising reading larger passages, whilst improving our inference, comprehension and understanding.
In English, we will be building on the learning covered by the Year 1 curriculum. In lessons, we will be learning about how we can add detail and description into our writing in order to engage our readers. We will provide fun, exciting and relevant stimulus such as stories, real life experiences and pictures, so the children enjoy writing in a variety of styles.
In mathematics, we are going to be working hard developing our understanding and fluency in the four operations. We are continuing to expand our maths understanding with our explanations on how we have come to our answers, our reasoning and problem-solving.
It is going to be a busy, but fun packed year, with some exciting new units of work such as ‘The Great Fire of London’, ‘Around the World’, ‘Space Race’ and many more.
Homework will be set on a Friday and is due on the Tuesday of the following week. Please continue to support your child by reading with them daily and signing their reading records. Being a confident reader underpins all learning within the Year 2 curriculum. PE kits will need to be worn on Tuesdays and Thursdays and you may bring in a healthy snack to eat at playtime.
We have many trips to look forward to this year including ‘The National Gallery’, ‘The Natural History Museum’ and ‘The Barnet Countryside Centre’. We are all looking forward to creating some great memories and improving our independence and confidence ready for Key Stage 2.
