St.Stephen's School

Class 2MW

Hello and welcome to class 2MW. Our teacher is Maryjane Winston and you can find us in Room 8. We are also lucky to have other adults to support us with our work, especially Redeemer Agbodo. 

We are so excited about the challenges that Year 2 has to offer. Our aim is to try our best in everything we do. To do this we will be  sharing our ideas with our friends, helping our partners when we can and doing our best listening and learning during carpet sessions. We have created our WE CARE class charter and will make sure that it is at the heart of all our learning.

In English we will focus on our grammar skills, spelling and neatly joining our handwriting. In Mathematics we will be learning our times tables, improving our arithmetic skills and exploring different mental strategies to help us solve problems. 

In Year 2 we will be improving our geographical knowledge using atlases, globes and maps. Our learning will focus on the United Kingdom, capital cities and surrounding seas. In History we will be sequencing events on a timeline and using artefacts and historical resources to learn about different periods and lifestyles. During our Art and DT sessions we will work with lots of different media and learn new techniques such as clay work, fine arts and using materials to create collages. 

We have already settled in brilliantly and are looking forward to an exciting year ahead.

2MW Class Charter

Each class at St. Stephen’s Primary School will complete a class charter, outlining agreements for members of the class and duty bearers (adults). All pupils are entitled to receive their rights. This class charter will form the basis of a display in class, be displayed on the class website page and also be used for class disciplinary matters.
