Welcome to Year 2
All classes in Year 2 are well-equipped and pupils have the support of full-time teaching assistants. The class teacher is responsible for teaching English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Art and P4C (Philosophy for Children). Pupils are taught P.E., ICT, Arabic and Islamic Studies by specialist subject teachers.
At this stage, the majority of phonics should be in place. However, phonics classes still take place daily. Emphasis is placed on building further language and maths skills whilst exploring further topics in science and the wider world.
In Year 2, homework and spelling packs are provided each week and should be completed by the following week. Pupils, at this stage, should not spend more than 30-40 minutes on homework as they are already working very hard at school. Pupils will also take home reading books, which they should read daily.
