Welcome to Year 2 - Apple
Our Year 2 Team consists of Mrs Banipal, Miss Baker and Mr Ward is our teacher when Mrs Banipal has her planning time.
Hi, I’m Mrs Banipal and I teach Apple class. I am passionate about creating a fun, happy learning environment where all children can feel proud of their achievements. My favourite part of the day is story time because I love the excitement of getting lost in a book.
I am Miss Baker and a Teaching Assistant in Apple class. I am passionate that all children should be excited about their learning.
Hi, I am Mr Ward. I am a PPA Teacher here at Little Heath and music subject leader. I cover a range of subjects and particularly enjoy PE, music and art lessons. This year I will be delivering music lessons across the school. As well as music theory and appreciation, I will be teaching a range of instruments to all year groups.
All children need their PE kit in school on a Tuesday and Thursday. Our PE kit is plain t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms and black pumps.
Homework will be set on a Friday and will need to be returned the following Wednesday. All children are expected to read at home as often as they can and rehearse their number facts. Their creative homework task is set at the start of the term and teachers will set a date for this to be returned. Children chose from a variety of tasks linked to their learning that term.
The children will choose a library book on a weekly basis. The children visit the library on a Thursday and will need to return the book they have and they can then choose another book
Throughout year 2 the teacher uses assessment to see how much the children have learnt. The formal assessments at the end of year 2 (End of KS1 SATs) no longer have to be completed. Little Heath Staff will continue to use teacher assessments and the test papers will act as a guide to support the teacher judgements.
If children did not pass the phonic screening test in year 1, they will have another opportunity to pass this in June 2024.
Books we will be reading this year are...
