Year 2 2016 - 2017

Mrs Hattersley


The Year 2 children are taught by Mrs Hattersley,Mrs Calderbank, Mrs Rumsey, Ms Veron and Mrs Foster (Learning Assistants). Throughout Year 2, the children continue to develop their own independence. They are given lots of responsibilities and they challenge themselves to achieve their full potential! They are aware of their own learning goals and with support from teachers and family, they work on their goals with enthusiasm and determination!

The children have daily english and maths lessons and also take part in topic based learning through the challenge curriculum. At the start of each topic they discuss what they already know and what they would like to learn about. They learn in lots of different ways such as exploring artefacts, researching on the internet and going on exciting trips. Recently. We have visited the World of Glass in St Helens, The Liverpool Mosque and the Walker Art Gallery.

The Year 2 classroom is very bright and has lots of information to help their learning. There is also plenty of opportunity for the children to learn outside where the children develop their gross motor skills, team work and gardening skills. They also consolidate and extend their learning through accessing the writing area, the maths area and the reading corner.

Every Thursday morning, Y2 have benefited from Forest School sessions.  They have taken part in activities such as campfire cooking, den building and tree climbing (to name just a few).  They have also been learning a variety of knots to make frames and to use as a life skill in the future.
