Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.


Welcome to Year 2's parent page. Here you will find all of the information you need to keep up to date with your children's learning.

Year Two is an assessment year.  Below are the Year Two learning expectations in reading, writing and mathematics for your information.  These assessments are designed to check that children in all schools are making progress. Your child’s teacher is assessing your child all the time and SATs are simply another form of assessment. 

By creating a positive learning environment the children will approach these assessments with a 'can do' attitude.  This is something we worked on in Autumn Term 1 as we learnt about having a Growth Mindset.  The assessments are administered in a relaxed environment and class teachers are with the children so they are with someone familiar.

The children will have the opportunity to practise the skill of sitting such assessments so they are familiar to them.  The SATS will be known to the children as Superhero Awareness Training!

If there is anything else that you need, please do not hesitate to see me at the end of the school day.  If you need a longer chat with me please contact me via the school office where I can arrange a telephone consultation with you.
