Kingfishers - Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 at St Mark's Primary School.


The class teacher is Miss Edwards and the TA is Miss Gauntlett. 


A typical day in year 2 


In the morning we begin our day by practising our spellings through handwriting practise, we then move onto stage not age phonics. This means that your child's learning is individulalised to meet their needs. In year 2 we begin Phase 6 learning which focuses on learning spelling rules and applying spelling patterns as well as reinforcing phase 5 sounds. 

Afterwards, we go into our maths lessons, these are often practical sessions with children exploring a range of mathematical equipment to support their learning. 


We are lucky enough to be able to offer each child a snack at break time and they can choose from hot buttery toast or a piece of fruit. 


After break time we start our literacy lessons, these are often taught based around a class text. 


The afternoons consist of PE, Science, RE, Music, Art/DT & PSHE. 


Our PE days for this term are:

Monday & Wednesday so please send your child into school wearing PE kit on these days. 


Home learning:

Children are expected to read at least 4 times a week and this is to be signed in their reading log. If your child reads 4 times a week they are entered into our golden ticket draw where they can win a free book!

The Year 2 Team at St Mark’s is made up of three adults who support the children through their last year in Key Stage 1. The year 2 curriculum is embedded through all that is taught. The morning will always consist of the Core Learning elements of Phonics, Literacy and Numeracy. Afternoons are spent focusing on other elements of the curriculum through topic learning.
