Year 2 Staff Team
Hello! Welcome to Year 2.
We are so excited to be teaching in Year 2, an important year as we prepare children for Key Stage 2. Our aim is to ensure that all pupils feel happy, supported and challenged through quality first teaching within their classroom environment. By continuing to provide the foundations of knowledge through a carefully designed and enriching curriculum, we aim to empower children so they can critically apply what has been taught and build confidence and resilience.
Over the year, pupils will continue to build on their understanding of key skills in Maths and English whilst developing new knowledge across our wide and diverse curriculum. To name a few areas they will study, pupils will discover the impact of The Great Fire on London, learn about the continents and oceans of the world, understand different religious beliefs and communities, explore key scientific topics on animals, including humans, materials and plants, and develop other carefully sequenced skills and knowledge across Computing, Music, PE, PSHE, DT, Art, and French. Additionally, in May 2023, CMPS will be administering the statutory KS1 SATs Assessments to all Year 2 pupils.
With this, we will continue to grow children’s cultural capital through excursions and workshops, pupil leader opportunities, Global Learning lessons, school and class assemblies, concerts and plays, and varying competitions. We will also be offering a range of extracurricular experiences such as visits from the Fire Brigade and ICU Nurses, and a trip to Kew Gardens to support our learning around plants.
By the end of Year 2, we are confident your child will have had an enriching experience which has built on their understanding of key topics and personally developed them as individuals who are equipped with the skills to make a smooth transition into KS2.
