What are the expectations of Year 2?

Upon entering Year 2 we hope that children will be able to:

  • Change their reading book independently

  • Change independently for PE with the exception of top button and tie

  • Write their first name and surname

  • Stick sheets into their book neatly

  • Recognise numbers 1-20 at least

  • Ask for help and explain why they are stuck

  • Have a positive attitude towards learning

  • Be resilient when things become tricky


What will Year 2 be learning this year?

Autumn term – Space - Lives of significant individuals: Neil Armstrong and Tim Peaks

Spring Term – Antarctica

Summer Term – Deadly 60 - Living things and their habitats


Which days will Year 2 have PE?

Fairford – will be having PE on Mondays & Thursdays

Stow – will be having PE on Wednesdays, Thursday (alternate weeks) and Fridays (alternate weeks)


When do Year 2’s reading records need to be handed to the teacher?

Reading records need to be in school every day - some children will read with an adult daily, others will be less frequent. As class teachers we would love to read more with every child, we will aim to read with them as often as possible.


Will my child be going on any trips this year?

These are the trips will have planned so far... Waitrose, Holst Museum, Wilson Museum, Sports Events at ASA, Pizza Party (celebrate SATs), All Things Wild, Literature Festival, Science Festival.
