Year 2 2019 - 2020

Mrs Hattersley

Mrs Hattersley


The Year 2 children are taught by Mrs Hattersley and Mrs Aldridge. 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.  We will visit The World of Glass in St Helens, The Liverpool Mosque, The Walker Art Gallery and Formby.

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 afternoon, Y2 will take part in Forest School sessions.  Activities include - campfire cooking, den building and tree climbing (to name just a few).  They will also learn a variety of knots to make frames and to use as a life skill in the future.

Mrs Rumsey will teach the children PE every Wednesday.  The children will build on the skills taught in year one through gymnastics, dance, tennis, football and handball.
