Provision in Year 2 builds upon the skills developed in Year 1.
Children enjoy a creative curriculum and an active learning approach to
embed and develop basic skills in all areas of the National Curriculum. Just
like in Year 1, we work hard to develop skills in reading, writing and maths.
During the summer term, children in Year 2 are tested using the Standard
Attainment Tasks. This is a very informal process for staff and children,
please rest assured the children are not under unnecessary pressure during this
time. Instead this time of year our key focus is to create independent learners
and critical thinkers in preparation for the move to Key Stage 2.
Our aims in Year Two is to provide a stimulating and reflective
learning environment. We encourage confident, reflective and playful learners,
filled with their own sense of purpose and self-belief. As teachers we listen
to the children as they discuss the challenge of new experiences, pose questions
and solve problems. We explore a wide variety of ICT resources that will allow
the children to extend their learning through technology. Children are
encouraged to be respectful and mindful with one another to support and nurture
each other on a daily basis. As children of The Pearl Academy we instil a sense
of pride in the children to care for their school and their wider community
that we are part of.
