YEAR TWOWe are 'THE SUPERHEROES'
We are the ‘Superheroes’.
Superheroes have special names, wear colourful costumes and strive to do good in the world. We don’t wear capes but work exceptionally hard to do exceptional things every day for our friends and those around us.
OUR CLASS TEACHER
My name is Mrs Graham and I am the Year 2 Class Teacher.
I remember, as a child, always having my nose in a book and my love of reading has continued ever since. I am therefore keen to promote a love of reading in class. Reading not only gives us a rich source of knowledge but improves our memory and exercises our brains. It helps to develop our imagination and builds our vocabulary which ultimately helps us to become better writers. What more could a teacher want? Who knows if the next J. K. Rowling or Michael Morpurgo is one of our Year 2 Superheroes? 😊

OUR CLASS TEACHER
My name is Miss Taylor and I also teach in Year 2. As a child at school, I enjoyed taking in experiences across the curriculum and participating in many enrichment activities such as dance and PE, science experiments, reading challenges, art or drama tasks, and languages. Therefore, as a teacher I am passionate about educating the whole child, providing children in my class with a wide range of experiences and opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and learning. Through these interesting and exciting classroom moments, I believe children are inspired to do their best and are most motivated to achieve. I know that superheroes have a wide range of skills and talents and I am excited to discover all the strengths and capabilities of our Year 2 superheroes!

If children have earrings in on P.E. days they will not be able to take part in P.E. that day.
Children who have earrings in must either; not wear them on P.E. days or be able to take them out themselves. Staff are not allowed to take them out or tape them over.
Wearing earrings in P.E. represents a potential hazard not only to the wearer but also to other children. Medical advice confirms that jewellery worn in physical education lessons is an unnecessary risk and should be avoided at all times – a risk we at St Mary Magalene’s are not prepared to take whilst your children are on school premises/in our care. Serious accidents have occurred as a result of contact between pupils wearing earrings or studs and other pupils or equipment, thus damaging the ear, or where items of jewellery have caught in apparatus and torn the ear lobe. Thank you for your support and understanding in this matter.
In Year 2, Key Stage 1 SAT’s will take place during May. Though this may seem a long way off, in reality the children need to prepare now to be ready for the assessments and tests they will undertake. READ MORE

The children in class have been working really hard in English. They have developed the story ‘Stuck’ by Oliver Jeffers and found it really enjoyable to write their own version.
