Year 2 is the last year in Key Stage One, where children develop more independence in their learning. Our varied curriculum, underpinned by the core values, allows every child to achieve and be successful.


Children will be building on their writing skills by starting to write more extended pieces and beginning to think about the impact on their reader. In reading, they will develop fluency and expression and begin to answer inference questions using clues from the text along with their own ideas and thoughts. In Maths they will develop their understanding of place value in two digit numbers and learn their times table facts for the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.             

The Year 2 Team


In 2B there is Ms Bedeau and Ms Birch, in 2S there is Ms Shipsey and in 2M there is Ms Meroyi. All three classes are supported by Ms Oliver.
