Ahlberg Class (Year 2)

Our teacher is Miss Harvey Nevin and our Learning Support Assistant is Mrs Ketley.

In Ahlberg, we create a positive and enjoyable environment in which the children feel happy to learn and feel confident to challenge themselves.

During year 2 we encourage children to work independently and cooperatively with each other. We support the children’s learning and development of skills through a range of teaching methods including whole class, group work, paired work and individual learning opportunities.

We learn through a variety of methods and where possible, the lessons are cross-curricular and practical.

Ahlberg class will be given extra responsibilities throughout the year to encourage them to develop confidence and independence, which will ensure they have a smooth transition into key stage 2. For example:

  • Taking the lead roles in the Christmas production
  • Choosing books independently

Please ensure children have removed earrings on PE days and that they have plimsolls or trainers in school for PE days.

The children will be given two reading books each week as a minimum. We ask that you please read for a short period of time with your child each night. You can discuss the events in the book, new vocabulary your child has encountered and ask them questions that require them to retrieve information from the text. This will help deepen their understanding of the books they are reading. 

As the year progresses, we also suggest giving your child time on TT rockstars in order to begin developing their times table knowledge. This will benefit them as they move through the school. Any other learning opportunities you encounter are also strongly encouraged.

Homework will be set on Seesaw every Friday and is due by the following Thursday.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Harvey Nevin
