Year 2 – Bees
A warm welcome to Year 2. I am Mrs. Stefaniuk and I am the teacher for Bee Class. This
year I am lucky enough to work with Mrs Hall who is our full time Teaching Assistant and
Mrs Wylie who works alongside individual children within class. Miss Akroyd, Mrs Burgin
and Mrs Conway also work across the two classes in Year 2 working with small groups of
children or supporting individuals. In Bee Class we try hard to ‘Bee the Bee’s knees!’ and
always ‘Bee the best that we can bee’. We work together as a team alongside our other
Year 2s, Grasshopper Class.
In Year 2 we encourage children to learn in an exciting, creative and supportive
environment. Each child is treated as an individual and encouraged to take greater
control of their own learning as they move towards the end of Key Stage 1.
In Bee Class we have high expectations. Our aim is to develop independent, hard
working children, who believe in themselves, enjoy learning and are resilient. We
promote and encourage these skills and attributes in order to make a smooth transition to
Junior School at the end of the year.
Our daily routine starts with a morning activity to complete before the register. We have
our English and Maths lessons in the morning, including Phonics and Handwriting. Our
afternoons begin with Guided reading and then we do lots of fun and interesting things
relating to our topic, which help deepen our knowledge and understanding of other areas
of the curriculum.
Our topics this year are:
* Darkness and Light
* Exploring the World
* Fire! Fire! (The Great fire of London)
* Mad About Minibeasts
