Year 2

Welcome to Year 2.

During this year we will begin to develop the child’s understanding of mathematical strategies, develop their reading comprehension and enhance their writing style. We also encourage a greater independence in preparation for Key Stage 2.

The children will complete their Key Stage 1 SATs tests over a few months through regular teacher assessment tasks. These tests will be in Reading, Writing, Spelling and Maths.

Prayer Project (Spring 2015) (4/28/2015)

Prayer Project

We have recently taken part in a prayer project, along with Bishop Walsh, Holy Cross and St Nicholas’ Schools. Each house group had a different theme to write a prayer about. Read our selection of prayers and look out for our Academy Prayer, produced by a selection of students from each school.
