4 a day At the start of each maths lesson the children will be given 4 sums using any operation. At the start of each maths lesson the children will be given 4 sums using any operation. E.g. 2 addition 2 subtraction. The children will work out the sums in their ‘4 a day’ books. The aim is to improve their mental strategies and speed.
Read Write Inc (Literacy) Instructions Instructions Letter Writing Letter Writing Recounts Recounts Riddles Riddles Story writing Story writing Poetry Poetry Creative Write Every Friday the children will take part in a creative write. We try to link our creative write to topic work we have been learning about that week. For example, when learning about the Great Fire of London the children would write a diary account as though they were Samuel Pepys.

Assessment At the start of each lesson we tell the children the objective of the lesson and agree a success criteria ( this is a checklist of how they are going to achieve the objective). We want to encourage the children to take responsibility for their work. We do this using different methods- Self Assessment – We use traffic lights or smiley faces for the children to indicate how they feel they are coping. Peer Assessment – 2 Stars and a wish the children will tell each other things they like about their work and one thing they can improve upon.
Expectations. In Year 2 we build upon the foundations that have been laid down in Reception and Year 1. In Year 2 we build upon the foundations that have been laid down in Reception and Year 1. Some of us have acquired the basic skills of Literacy and Numeracy and can use these skills to work independently. Some of us are still developing these skills and need our teachers to support us in our learning journey. Please remember that each child follows their own learning journey and we support them as they mature and develop.
Routines We are trying to encourage the children to be independent within the classroom. Morning – The children are responsible for – Hanging up coats and bags. Hanging up coats and bags.

By the end of Year 2 we want our children to be: HAPPY, ENTHUSIASTIC, INQUISTIVE LEARNERS!!!! Able to work independently. Stay on task (30/40 minutes). Communicate and express themselves confidently within class. Develop an awareness of the needs of others in class, school and the wider world. Show empathy and willingness to help others.
How do we achieve this? Through the Year 2 Team :- Mrs McKinstry/ Mrs Parry. As a class we strive to create a positive atmosphere and can do approach by a system of rewards. School House Team Points. Group table awards Stickers to reinforce teacher expectations. Well Done!
Within the curriculum we may use many different strategies to develop the children’s learning. We work in groups, where we develop turn-taking, where we develop turn-taking, listen to and respond to others, listen to and respond to others, collaboration. collaboration. We work in pairs, develop skills and ideas and develop skills and ideas and communicate them confidently communicate them confidently We work independently.
We work as a class, Sharing ideas Sharing ideas Depending on the lesson purpose, children will be grouped accordingly – which can be mixed ability - and work is differentiated.
Frequently asked questions. Do I correct every word when my child is writing? No. The children should be able to write high frequency words, and harder words should be phonetically plausible. What can I do when my child can’t blend a word? Certain words such as ‘ because, said, what’ cannot be blended, therefore the children need to develop sight vocabulary and memorise whole words. How do I best support my child with reading? Talk about the story. Ask the 5 W’s – Who, What, Where, When, Why? Decode – break words into sounds. Guess, from the meaning of the sentence, what the word is.
What do I do if my child reverses letters and numbers? Simply practise b d p q Numbers - practise correct orientation Do you do SATS? Yes we do. The children complete a writing, reading maths and spelling test. The children complete the tests in summer term in small groups during lessons so that they are unaware. Where should my child be at the end of Year 2? The average child should be at level 2 by the end of the summer. So in Maths a level 2 child would be able to – Count and record up to 100 and round numbers to nearest 10 Understand place value to 3 places. Add, Subtract, (understand more and less) Multiply and Divide in number, money and measures. Recognise 2D and 3D shapes.
Handle Data. Read scales. Measure in cm and m. Understand position and direction and use terms – ¼ turn clockwise. Tell time – O’clock, quarter past and half past. In Literacy a level 2 child would be able to – Recognise Year 2 high frequency words and use their phonic skills to decode unfamiliar words. In writing a level 2 child would be able to – Write a sentence containing a noun, verb, adjective and connective. Write a page of A4 either as a story, recount or letter with a clear beginning, middle and end, and punctuated with capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks.
Partnership. None of this would be possible without the support of you, the parents. Our aim is to work as a team, in partnership with you, to do the very best for the children in our care! We look forward to a HAPPY YEAR together. Thank you.
