There are three classes in Year 2 – Dolphin Class, Panda Class and Tiger Class. Each class has 30 children. There are 7 adults that learn across Year 2 with the children. Miss Smith and Miss Muhammad are the teachers in Dolphin Class, Miss Harris is the teacher in Panda Class and Mr Wylie is the teacher in Tiger Class. Mrs Gale, Mrs Jones and Miss Gubby learn with all the children across the entire year group.
This year the children started on Tuesday 5th September 2017. They have all shown that they are very keen learners and have been confident in exploring and using the entire learning environment to its full potential. The children have settled straight back into the routines that they are used to at Beddington Infants’ school and have used their growing knowledge and their curiosity to lead them to produce thoughtful pieces of work. So far the children have produced excellent pieces of writing describing their summer break and already they are remembering all the important lessons they had learned about writing in Year One. e.g. using the correct punctuation in a sentence and adding conjunctions, such as and, but or because to extend their sentences. The children have also been showing how much they know about the value of numbers and have demonstrated different ways to make these numbers using a range of different methods.
The children in Year 2 have a lot of excellent learning experiences to look forward to. During the last academic year there were trips to the beach, local places of worship and Hever Castle. There were also plenty of opportunities for families to join the children in their learning. Families helped us to make ice cream, bread, space buggies and used saws to cut twigs and create giant dinosaur skeletons. All children thoroughly enjoyed all of these learning experiences and having experienced they were able to use them to enhance their learning. The children also took part in several different assemblies, showcasing their talents and their resilience. We are sure that the children in Year 2 2017 – 2018 will have a fantastic time and will make the most of every learning opportunity.
