The Year Two team are:
Mr Sean Murphy (Class Teacher),
Mrs Keenan (Teaching Assistant)
We all try our hardest to make sure that we have a healthy, happy and positive learning environment for the children. Each child will be greeted by the warm and friendly member of the Year Two staff each morning and it is our mission to make sure that all children not only grow in knowledge but also grow in confidence, determination and ultimately achieve their potential. To make sure this happens in our classroom, we all try our best to:
- put our hands up
- be kind to others
- listen to others carefully
- try our best
- persevere when things are challenging
- be friendly to others
- have a positive attitude
- tell the truth
- look after things
- keep our classroom tidy
- look our smartest
- be organised
- be ready to learn
We all try our hardest to make sure we deliver the curriculum in an exciting and stimulating way. We have daily Maths and English lessons including spelling, grammar, phonics and reading. We teach different topics each half term and try to link our topic to our Maths and English lessons. The children will have History, Geography, Science, Computing, RE, Design and Technology, PSCHE, Art, PE, Music and French lessons during the week delivered through a variety of different topics. The topics for the Spring Term are:
- Far Across the Sea
- Neil Armstrong

Reading – Please hear your child read as often as possible with a minimum of three times a week. Your child should be able to freely read the text they take home with only a few unfamiliar words having to be decoded. Reading books are changed once a week unless you indicate in your child’s planner that they have read at home and require a new book. There is a box in the classroom for children that require new books. If your child has read at home three times in a week, they will be entered into our reading raffle and have a chance to win a prize.
Spelling – Children will be given ten spellings each week to learn. These spellings are taken from the National Curriculum. We will have a weekly spelling test. These results will be shared in their reading record. They will also have two pieces of 'SPaG' (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) homework each week which will be sent home on Thursday and due back on Monday.
Mathletics, Mangahigh and Bug Club – Each child has an individual username and password to use these three resources at home. There are a variety of different activities for your child to do at home.
Home Learning Book – Each week, one piece of homework will be sent home on Thursday and due back on Monday.
LEGOLAND - On a very hot sunny day, the children enjoyed their day of adventure including the 4D cinema where they all were showered with water!
