Welcome to the Springwood Junior Academy’s Year 2 website page. In Year 2, our wonderful children grow in independence and confidence as they reach the end of their Key Stage 1 journey. We provide an exciting, engaging curriculum that is underpinned by quality teaching and learning in the core subjects of reading, writing and maths. Our nurturing approach ensures that children feel happy and cared for during their time in our class.

As Year 2 is final year in Key Stage 1, our children will be undertaking statutory assessments in May. These take the form of SATs (standard assessment tests) in reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar and maths. The outcomes of these tests are used to support teacher assessment to identify whether each child is below the expected level, at the expected level or working at greater depth within the level. Teacher assessed writing levels are also reported.

This year, because our Year 2 children missed their phonics screening check in June as a result of lockdown, they will be expected to complete a phonics check after October half term. Any children who do not reach the expected standard at this time will complete another phonics check in June, alongside our Year 1 children.

 

Here is an overview of this half term's learning:
