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 Mr Smith
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.
