Welcome to Year 2


Welcome to Year 2, where Mrs O’Sullivan and Mrs Evans are the teachers in 2ES and Mrs Derbyshire is the class teacher in 2D. Children are supported in their learning by Mrs Mann also.

In Year 2 we work together to provide a happy, busy and enriching learning environment in which children are nurtured and encouraged to achieve their full potential in all areas.

We have high expectations in terms of behaviour and achievement, which the children respond positively to.

During Year 2, we build upon existing skills and concepts. These are extended by encouraging the children to explore and investigate ideas further as they become increasingly independent in their learning.

A high value is placed on working in partnership with parents in order to enable children to progress effectively, according to their individual needs and abilities.

We aim to make learning exciting and fun and promote cross curricular learning wherever possible by linking subjects together to inspire, engage and challenge the children’s interests and thinking.

The children are encouraged to become responsible members of the school and community, by demonstrating tolerance, respect, understanding and care towards others.

By the end of Year 2, our aim is for the children to have a smooth transition into KS2 as happy, confident and enthusiastic learners, equipped with the skills and independence needed to continue to develop a love for learning and achieve highly.
