Year 2

yeartwo

Pupils in year 2 will be 6 or 7 years old, with most of them having their 7th birthday during the school year.  The class teachers are Mrs S Bateman and Ms S Healy. They are ably supported by the TAs – Mrs Sissou, Mrs James, Mrs Burnham, Mrs Robertson, Miss Baumann, Mrs Daly and Mrs Shirran

The children in year 2 are in their final year as infants, completing their Key Stage 1 assessments (SATs) at the end of the year.  Although the assessments are a form of testing, the teachers manage them very well so that the children do not feel under any kind of pressure.  In fact, most pupils do not even realise that they are taking KS1 SATs unless someone tells them. The tests form a small part of the teacher assessments that are reported at the end of the year for reading, writing and maths.
