Mrs Holmes and Mrs 'Messy' Brooks
A very warm and happy welcome to Year 2. This year is the final stage in the infant journey where we try really hard to support children to do their best and become independent and organised learners, preparing them nicely for entering the juniors. These skills also help the children immensely when they take their end of Key Stage SATs. We like to learn outdoors when we can, so you will find us outside whatever the weather. Raincoats and wellies at the ready!
Maths, Phonics and English lessons happen daily and we encourage our children to explore and persevere. In Maths, we use a range of apparatus and support our children to be good at explaining their reasoning to a partner. English covers a range of genres from narrative to recount texts. We really focus on bringing on the children as fluent and confident readers. We want every single one of the them to be instilled with a love of books and be able to decode with confidence!
Our favourite topics over the year include a topic about Lego and Denmark - which is our class country; a topic about the Great Fire of London and we also learn some of the history of Hayfield village. Science is mainly about animals and plants and we head outside as often as possible.
