Year 2 - Beech, Cherry and Rowan Classes
Welcome to Year 2!
The children’s final year in Key Stage 1 will see them being taught by Miss Byrne (Beech Class), Miss Clarke and Miss Stroud (Cherry Class) and Miss Wickenden (Rowan Class). As class teachers, they work closely with the TAs, Mrs Beadle, Mrs Bateman, Mrs Hale and Miss Howell.
As they work towards their SATS at the end of year 2, our main aim is to encourage them to be more independent, to be resilient learners and to enjoy their learning. The curriculum is taught in a variety of inspiring and engaging ways.
We also have some exciting events and visits taking place throughout the year:
-Christmas singing concert
-A visit from a Theatre Workshop during the topic of The Great Fire of London
-Trip to Ashdown Forest
-Ice Cream Parlour
Communication between home and school is crucial throughout your child’s time at school. You can contact us easily through notes in home-school link books, speaking to us in the mornings/afternoons when you drop off/pick up your child and through Class Dojo messages.
Our door is always open!
WOW! What a great start to the year! The children have settled into year 2 quickly and positively.
We kicked off the term with a magical mystery world tour where the children experienced what it might be like on an aeroplane and then, chose arts and crafts to make from different regions in the world. We continue to learn the names of the continents and oceans in the world. Why not get them to sing this tune with you at home.
Thank you to all of you who were able to attend the parental event, in order to find out more about events and expectations in year 2. Miss Byrne, Miss Wickenden, Miss Stroud and Miss Clarke will continue to have parent consultations in term 2. Please book one with your child’s teacher if you haven’t already done so. Keep a look out for future parent events – coming soon!
This term, Sandown School took part in Hasting’s Storytelling Festival. This year’s theme was based upon ‘Flights of Fancy’ and year 2 retold the story of ‘The Giant Jam Sandwich’ By John Vernon Lord. In groups the children learnt different parts of the story and retold them creatively. The children then performed the whole story collectively to year four in an end of week celebration. Year 2 also ordered and followed instructions to make their own jam sandwiches. I wonder if this will keep them wasps away?
