Welcome to Year 2.
There are two Y2 classes, Oak Class and Willow Class.
The children in Y2, as the oldest children in our school, have the opportunity to take on several Monitor roles including Fruit Monitor and Playground monitors to help with Huff and Puff equipment.
As the children are at the end of their Key Stage 1 education; they are assessed to measure how much progress they have made since the end of Reception. This assessment is the new Key Stage One tests. These tests will consist of a reading paper and a mathematics paper. All of the tests will assess the children's application of key skills they have learnt throughout the Key Stage One Curriculum. The teacher assessments are made by the child's class teacher throughout the year in Y2. These tests further confirm teacher's assessment and will take place in the first two weeks in May each year. Teacher assessments throughout the year inform final judgements.
