Year 2

Year Two

Miss Reynolds (2B) and Miss Stack (2Y) are supported by Mrs Phillips and Mrs Serieux. Mr Hicks, Miss Lomax and Mrs Duncan also work in the year group to support specific children.


At St. Helen’s we are committed to developing the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that we cover all areas of the National Curriculum.

Supporting Learning at Home

We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Miss Reynolds or Miss Stack.

Every week we change the children’s home reading books (when possible), as well as sending home spellings, times tables, mental maths and homework for the children to learn and complete.

Year Two Expectations

The children in Year Two are assessed against the Target Tracker bands to ensure all children are making good progress.

The end of year two expectation is a 2S. 


Children are given targets to move their learning forward.

For reading, writing and maths the Year Two children will also be assessed against the interim assessment framework. Pupils need to meet all of the statements to be awarded the standard. At the end of the academic year, for these subjects we will report on whether each child is working towards, at expected, or above the expected standard of year two.

Year two participated in workshops with the Handprint Theatre as part of a whole school citizenship focus. These were drama workshops that focused on developing good relationships and values. The workshops also gave the children am opportunity to express their feelings on this topic through art and drama.
