Butterflies (Year 2)

Welcome to the Butterflies class!

Year Two marks the end of Key Stage One and focuses on helping the children to develop independence and take more responsibility. In the summer term, children will take the Key Stage 1 SATs. 

Developing our reading skills in Year 2 is vital and you can really help at home by ensuring you listen to your child read, as well as discussing what they have read, daily. Improving our handwriting, including writing in a joined-up cursive style, is something we will practise every week. During Year 2 we also work extra hard on making sure we have a good understanding of those key maths skills, from ordering numbers to understanding multiplication and division.

The adults who work in the Butterflies class are:

Mrs Patel, Mrs Clarke, Mrs Zghari and Mrs Rowe.

Homework: Homework will be handed out on Friday and will be collected in on Wednesdays.

Spelling tests are on Wednesdays.

PE:  Thursday with Mrs Patel and Mr McAuliffe will take the Friday PE lesson, children will come to school in their PE kit.
