In Year 2, our lessons incorporate a combination of whole class teaching, small group work. Within our classrooms there are 6 areas of learning; these include Role Play, Writing, Reading, Creative, Construction and Numeracy. In each area there are activities for the children to complete, to consolidate prior learning. These become more structured as the year progresses.
The rationale behind this approach is to empower children to develop the skills they need to become independent life long learners. At Savile Park we have set out continuous areas of learning to ensure that children are given opportunities to develop their skills and also consolidate learning objectives independently.
The Learning Environment makes an active contribution to children’s independent learning. Interactive displays, high frequency words, technical and ambitious vocabulary, text features, book corners and easily accessible resources all contribute towards pupil progress.
Each classroom has a topic display board. This shows the learning journey a class is taking, including pictures and examples of work. The display should include; what the children’s perceptions and understanding were at the beginning of the topic, what key questions the children wanted to find out and the tasks they were involved in to answer these questions.
Homework: Books are sent out on Fridays.
PE: Tuesday and Fridays.
Reading: At least three times each week
Spellings: My Maths is put up every other Fridays.

Trips, events and visitors:
At Savile Park Primary we enrich the curriculum for our children by offering a range of educational visits and other activities that add to and complement what they learn in school. There are also a number of people who visit the school to support our work. Some visits relate directly to areas of learning for individual classes, whilst others relate to all our children.

On Thursday 27th June, year 2 went on a fantastic trip to the beach. Children participated in a sand art competition, played sport, walked along the pier and best of all they had an ice-cream sat outside in the sun.
The children researched the lives of famous people and looked at what makes them important. They focused on Harriet Tubman and Mary Seacole and studied how they were real life superheroes. They looked and food that Mary Seacole would of used to make her patients better.
