Year 2 2023 - 2024

Ms Howarth

A very warm welcome to Year 2! 

The team in Year 2 is made up of Miss Howarth, Class Teacher and Mrs Mansfield, Class Teaching Assistant.

We will also be joined by Mrs Powers and Mrs Wiley throughout the week. 

Mrs Allton will also teach on Thursday afternoons.

We intend to make our learning fun and active by following the School's Golden Rules which are;

Be Ready 

Be Respectful 

Be Safe

General Infomation:

In year 2, we develop on our knowledge and skills from year 1 in preparation for the National Standerdised Testing (KS1 SATS). Despite,  KS1 SATS no longer being compulsory for year 2 children, we will continue to use them at the end of the year as a form of assessment. We will also still test those children who did not pass the phonics screening in year 1 which remains a complusory assessment. 

In year 2, we enjoy to solve problems and ask quetions to deepen our learning. We like to take our learning outside as we are fortunate enough to have a lot of outdoor space. We enjoy making learning memorable through drama, singing and being creative. We encourage daily reading for fluency, comprehension and to review our knowledge of phonics. 


Each week the children are set homework for English/phonics and maths. Homework is set on a Friday and to be retuned the following Wednesday for marking and ready to be sent on the Friday. 

We also set weekly spellings on a Friday and they are tested the following Friday.

Children are encouraged to read daily and books are changed on Monday and Thursdays. 


Please see the uniform policy for further details regarding the P.E kit.

Our PE days are on Wednesday and Friday but we try to be as activie as possible each day.

During break and lunch, the children take part in a range of OPAL activities such as; playing with tyres, small world, dressing up and much more. Opal is a really exciting development here at Middleforth and will progress gradually with more activities available to the children over the course of the year. 

Although we aim to be outside as much as possible, when it is wet break, the class have created a wet break agreement where they play board games, colour, and complete activities as voted by the class. Please see our wet break agreement attached below. 


We use ClassDojo to communicate as a class and across school however, you can always speak to a member of staff at the door on drops offs or via the school office. As class teacher, I will aim to update class dojo weekly with photos of our learning and any reminders. 

We hope you find this page informative and if you do require any further support then please get in touch, 


The door is always open.
