Welcome to Seacole Class!
We are named after Mary Seacole, a brave and determined lady who travelled across the world helping to care for soldiers during war times. Mary lived more than 150 years ago and she was born in Jamaica. Her mother was Jamaican and her father was Scottish, so Mary was mixed race. We will be learning lots more about her amazing life throughout the year together.
We will also be enjoying some other fantastic topics in Year 2 including learning about Failsworth, The Great Fire of London, Famous Nurses, Poles Apart and the United Kingdom.
In Science we will be learning about plants, materials, health, living things, habitats and lifecycles.
We encourage and support the children to read daily both in and out of school. The children will enjoy listening and sharing stories every day in class. They will also continue to have access to a variety of online reading books using their log-in for Bug Club.
At South Failsworth Primary School a positive attitude to learning and good behaviour is celebrated using our reward system. Children are awarded mission merits for following the Steps to Success. Their learning and behaviour are also celebrated in class.
Nationally, children in Year 2 complete statutory assessments called SATs. These assessments will take place in May and will consist of maths, reading and spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) tests. A meeting will be held later in the year where more information will be given about these assessments.
Thank you in advance for your support,
