St.Stephen's School

Class 2RF

Hello and welcome to class 2RF. Our teacher is Rebekah Finlay and you can find us in Room 9. We are also lucky to have other adults to support us with our work.

We are looking forward to taking on all the new challenges Year 2 has to offer. Our aim is to share our imaginative ideas, work neatly in our books and collaborate with each other to make sure we all achieve to the best of our ability. We will always work as a team and support each other in everything we do.

In English we will focus on our grammar skills, spelling and joining our handwriting. In Mathematics we will be learning our times tables and exploring different mental strategies to help us solve problems.

In Year 2 we will be improving our geographical knowledge, in particular the United Kingdom, capital cities and surrounding seas. We will use atlases, globes and maps. In History we will be sequencing events on a timeline and using artefacts and historical resources to learn about different periods and lifestyles. During our Art and DT sessions we will work with lots of different media and learn new techniques such as clay work, fine art and using materials to create collages.

We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead and will continue to follow our WE CARE class charter which is at the heart of all our learning.

Each class at St. Stephen’s Primary School will complete a class charter, outlining agreements for members of the class and duty bearers (adults). All pupils are entitled to receive their rights. This class charter will form the basis of a display in class, be displayed on the class website page and also be used for class disciplinary matters.
