Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 at St John the Baptist Catholic Primary School.

Meet the Year 2 team

Miss James: Year 2 Class Teacher & KS1 Leader

Mrs Hill: Teaching Assistant (mornings)

In Year 2 we encourage children to begin to apply all their fabulous early years learning and build upon their growing skill set. We celebrate the children's achievements and encourage a love of learning! Each half term we focus on a particular topic and use a cross-curricular approach to engage and enthuse the children. Our topics for this academic year are:  London and the Queen, Famous People, Castles, Africa, The Seaside and Me and My World. 

The children are taught Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Phonics, Spelling, Science, History, Geography, Computing, Music, Art, Design Technology and Physical Education. We also take part in a weekly singing lesson.

Our two School Council Representatives are chosen by the children each year and take our ideas and share them with the rest of the School Council. We also have Class Ambassadors, Eco Councillors, Sports Councillors and many other important child-led roles which enable the children to feel valued and important.

We have lots of fun in Year 2 and there are many opportunities for children to consolidate their learning through taking part in activities such as extra-curricular visits and workshops throughout the year. We enjoy taking part in singing lessons and proudly show off our singing talents in numerous performances!

We hope the information on this page gives you a ‘window’ into life in Year 2. Our door is always open if you would like to visit!
