Welcome to Planets class and Year 2!
My name is Miss King and I teach the class with the help of Mrs Sivell and Mrs Batey. I am also Phase Leader for Years 1, 2 and Year 3, which helps to ensure a smooth transition at the end of Year 2 and the beginning of Key Stage 2.
Reading, writing and the spoken language are my special interests, and by sharing my knowledge of great children’s books hopefully allows them to leave Year 2 with a real thirst for reading for pleasure!
In Planets class we are very enthusiastic, dramatic, and inquisitive; always eager to learn more! We have some wonderful books from our Text Linked Curriculum which allow us to go on a journey to lots of different places. Throughout the year we are encouraged to work together and support each other’s learning journey using Building Learning Power.
This year is also the year the children take end of Key Stage One government tests. The children are prepared in a fun, stimulating and unpressured way, so by the time they actually sit them they are relaxed, confident and excited to show off all the knowledge they have accomplished in Year 2!
Year 2 is a very busy and exciting as we support your child in becoming more independent and have the satisfaction of watching them grow into confident, articulate and enthusiastic learners!
