Welcome to Year 2
I would like to take this opportunity to offer a very warm welcome to yourselves and your children for the next academic year at Hempstalls.
Year 2 is an important year for the children. They will take on more responsibility and learn to work with more independence. In the summer term they will be assessed using the government Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) which will determine the level at which they are working. More information will be given nearer to the time; however we will do our best to ensure that the testing process is carried out with as little disruption as possible and so that the children do not feel under any unnecessary pressure.
We firmly believe that children should enjoy coming to school and we aim to make this the case for all members of Year 2. Children naturally want to learn and find out about the world around them and it is our job to nurture this and give them every possible opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding in a fun and engaging way.
This year we are very lucky to have support from Mrs Armstrong, Mrs Davis who are all experienced Teaching Assistants. They will be supporting individual children, the whole class or working with groups.
