Welcome to Year 2
Mrs Dentith, Mrs Cotter, Miss Styles, Mrs Stokes, Mrs Moses and Mrs Tichy.
In Year 2, we aim to make learning fun, enjoyable and memorable, igniting the imagination and instilling a love of learning in all of our children. We will foster a sense of warmth and community, were children feel safe, secure and valued. In Year 2 we will give 100% in everything we do, always striving to reach our full potential. We will encourage the children to take pride in their work and presentation and to always try their best, so that they are proud of their work. We will rise to the challenges of year 2, embrace it, ask questions and know it is ok to make mistakes, always learning from them, bouncing back and try again. We will have a ‘can do’ attitude to our learning and demonstrate resilience and determination to achieve our goals. We will remember our school moto and always follow it ‘if you can dream it, you can do it!
In Year 2 we are a class family, always working as a team and taking care of one another. As a family and school community, we are dedicated to help and support all children, enabling them to flourish, grow and succeed, in their own individual ways. As always, and especially during these difficult and uncertain times, we are committed to support, empower and encourage one another, helping the children grow in confidence and independence.
We promise that this year is going to be a great learning experience for all of the children.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact any of the Year 2 team.
Year 2 – Remote Education Activities
Where a class, group or a small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or local restrictions require pupils to remain at home, we have the capacity to offer immediate remote education! We understand that there will be implications on parents/carers and children alike – if our school were to close, if a bubble were to be sent home or if your child has to self-isolate. We understand that children may need to share access to technology, parents may be juggling supporting remote learning and working remotely themselves and that many parents may be trying to support children of different ages, from different classes and indeed, different schools. Therefore, we want to be as supportive as possible in this difficult time and provide a clear, effective platform and structure for our whole-school community. All remote education tasks for the pupils will be communicated through our new ‘Remote Learning Activities’ template. When applicable, these will be posted to parents/carers on Class Dojo and uploaded to our school website (below) Enjoy…

Our Whole-School Curriculum Map
We have six school values which permeate all aspects of life at Florence Melly Community Primary. These values are centred round the acronym: DREAMS. Each half-term is allocated to one of these core values and these are explored as a whole-school theme. Weekly themes, under the core values umbrella theme, form the focus for our SMSC lessons and assemblies. For example, during our Safety themed half-term – our children explore themes such as ‘NSPCC Speak Out, Stay Safe’, ‘Share Aware Online Safety’ and ‘Different Families, Same Love’.

Year 2 – Year Group Specific Curriculum Map
Our curriculum has been carefully built and the learning opportunities and assessment milestones for each year group crafted to ensure progression and repetition in terms of embedding key learning, knowledge and skills. Subject leaders have developed subject specific characteristics which we expect the children to demonstrate in each discrete subject area. These characteristics underpin all work in these subjects and form a focal point for display areas and provide a common subject specific vocabulary for staff and pupils. We empower our staff to organise their curriculum as they see fit to best suit the needs of the pupils in their care. They are best placed to make these judgements. Staff develop year group specific long-term curriculum maps which identify when the different subjects and topics will be taught across the academic year. The vast majority of subjects are taught discretely but staff make meaningful links across subjects to deepen children’s learning.
