"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
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.
PE is taught twice a week and children should come in wearing their PE kits on these days. This will be on:
Thursdays for all three classes
Wednesdays for 2B and 2HJ
-Weekly spelling tests will take place on a Thursday.
-Homework (Maths, Spelling and Reading) will be uploaded onto the google classroom on a Friday.
-Please read with your child as often as you can and we will change their books once a week. All three classes will have their books changed on a Thursday.
