Welcome to Year 2. Croeso i Ddosbarth 2!

Mrs Taylor and Miss Lee 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, homework and the spelling lists 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. 


Autumn Term 1

This half term our topic is 'Marvellous Me'. The children will be learning all about themselves, their bodies, their feelings and family. They will also have the opportunity to take ownership of their own learning through 'pupil voice'.
