Our key values underpin all we do at Seymour Park; we Respect, Care, and Grow.
Our children follow the nationally agreed curriculum with an emphasis on it being rich, broad, and balanced. Teachers plan lessons to ensure they are well-sequenced and build on prior learning. We want all our children to know more, remember more, and in turn be able to do more.
The children’s phonic knowledge is developed further in Year 2, following Phase 6 of Letters & Sounds. Guided Reading is taught through a whole class approach, using high quality challenging texts, which puts a focus on vocabulary development, inference, and comprehension skills.
Mathematics is taught using the White Rose mastery model, where children develop their understanding, fluency, and reasoning skills.
As their community project, the children in Year 2 will work closely with Old Trafford Creative Space which endeavors to bring communities together through art.
This term PE is taught on Tuesdays for 2PR and Wednesdays for 2RB and 2HJ. Children should come in wearing their PE kits on their classes’ day for PE.
Weekly spelling tests take place on a Wednesday and homework is given out on Fridays.
