Year 2 Blog
Welcome to the blog for our Year 2 classes. The year group blogs are a great communication tool. Teachers will be posting news, photographs, details of homework, examples of work, and anything they wish to share with their pupils and parents. Please speak to your class teacher if you have any question, feedback or concerns.

The oldest children in our school are in year 2 and continue to develop their skills in all areas of the curriculum from their achievements in year 1. The learning is still taken from the National Curriculum Key Stage One Programmes of Study although staff are skilled in recognising where extra challenge is needed for high attaining pupils. Many of our children regularly achieve results beyond that expected of 7 year olds, particularly in reading, writing, maths and science. Children in year 2 enjoy greater responsibility for the wider school environment and help to organise the library, dining room, hall and music for the daily Meeting. Our Eco-Schools Ambassadors are also chosen from year 2 and support us all in striving to become a more sustainable school.
Welcome back to our final half term in Gold Class!
The children enjoyed an excellent scooter safety training session this week. Now all they need to do is put all they learnt into practice!
My apologies to Mrs Reed for omitting computing form my newsletters before half term. She has been teaching this area of the curriculum and the children have done some excellent work on algorithms and using websites. They have also done some important learning about e-safety and how to stay safe on-line. We hope you will give this your full support this at home.
With the school gardening competition in mind, work on our garden design continues apace. We would still welcome some extra help with this if there are any green fingered or budding (apologies for the pun) Chelsea Flower Show enthusiasts among you!
We are looking forward to our school trip to Whipsnade on Monday.
