Welcome to Year 2!
The staff in Year 2 are:
Miss R Miller - Class Teacher
Mrs C Archibald - Teaching Assistant
Mrs S Smith - Teaching Assistant (mornings)
Mrs Z Filbey - Learning Support Assistant (3 afternoons)
Year 2 is the final year in Key Stage 1 - the last year of 'infants' before moving to 'juniors' in Key Stage 2. In May each year, children are assessed using SATs tests and teacher assessment to check that they are making the expected progress for their age. The expectations are high, but we provide lots of support and different activities to help pupils become confident learners.
Sport Relief 2018
On Friday, 23rd March the children came to school dressed in their sporty clothes for a £1.00 donation for the Sport Relief charity.
Each class took part in an obstacle course around the school grounds, followed by a fantastic frisbee throwing session!
Science Day 2018
On Friday, 16th March the whole school took part in a special Science Day to mark Science Week.
In Year 2 we learnt about steering and movement.
We made a simple go kart out of card and wood. We created several prototypes and made improvements until we found a way to produce a working steering column. We learnt new words such as axle, chassis and steering column. We looked at a real go kart to see how it was made and watched a video about go kart racing.
We also learnt about how gravity helps a go kart travel down a hill or slope.
