Year Two Teacher
Welcome to Year 2. Croeso i Ddosbarth 2!
Miss Lee, Mrs Hughes and Mrs Cleave would like to warmly welcome you to the Year 2 class page. We hope that you will be regular visitors so we can keep you up to date with what we are currently learning, any news and other key activities or events that may be taking place. Here you will also be able to find the Upper Foundation Phase newsletter, spelling lists and the year 2 homework list for each half term. These can be downloaded from the file links below.
About The Foundation Phase
In Year 2, your child will continue to learn through the Foundation Phase curriculum. The statutory Areas of Learning in the Foundation Phase are:
- Personal and Social Development, Well-being and Cultural Diversity
- Language, Literacy and Communication Skills
- Mathematical Development
- Welsh Language Development
- Knowledge and Understanding of the World
- Physical Development
- Creative Development
The children continue to develop these areas of learning through directed activities in class, as well as completing more independent activities in our provision areas, both indoors and outdoors.
Ysgol Derwen is moving towards implementing the new curriculum, which becomes statutory in 2022. The curriculum will become more child led with children taking more responsibility for their own learning.
Year 2 have now adopted a new style of homework along with the Junior classes, following a successful trial during the summer term (Please see separate letter for more details). The children will have a range of homework tasks to choose from which will relate to the topic we are learning about. Children will get a new set of homework tasks each half term, when our topic changes. The children are expected to complete one task a week and hand it in every Monday. We hope you and your child enjoy this new style of homework and the tasks provided.
