End of Year Expectations for Year Two

On this page you'll find information on the end of year expectations for children in Year Two at St Patrick's.

The National Curriculum outlines these expectations as being the requirements your child must meet in order to ensure continued progress.

All the objectives will be worked on throughout the year. In our school we have an ethos of every child developing and learning at their own pace with support provided when necessary. 

In our mission statement "we wish to provide everyone in the school with a chance to fulfill their potential to learn and experience success in a full, balanced and differentiated curriculum".  We strive for our children to be happy individuals who are prepared to have a go and take risks. In Year 1 we are trying to be "can do koalas", the children will be telling you more about this soon. 

Any extra support you can provide in helping your children with Maths, reading and writing will be greatly beneficial and valued.
