Year 2

Hello! We are Hillside’s fantastic Year 2 class. Our class teacher is Mr Mellor and our teaching assistants are Miss Pinnington and Mrs Toye. We’re a very caring class who regularly show friendship and make it our mission to look after each other. We love to put 100% into every task we’re given and we come to school every day excited by the new challenges that await us.

We know the importance of showing equality in Year 2 and we are happy to help our friends if they are upset or struggling. We also love to show determination. We have shown this recently by starting our path to becoming timestable rockstars. This helps us to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times table. We love to try and be as quick as we can!

We show excellence when working in class. We have a range of exciting topics this year including ‘Around The World’, ‘This is Me’ and ‘Explorers’. We have really enjoyed our learning so far and we are working hard on our metacognition: memorising those interesting facts! We have shown how super we are on the computers and we enjoy learning outdoors.

We have children in our class who are inspirational! We’re now the oldest on our playground so we’ve made it our mission to set an example to the younger children. It’s so important to be good role models. At many times during Year 2, we have to show courage. Sometimes, things get a little tricky or they may upset us. We learn about growth mindset at Hillside and show our courage when faced with a difficult challenge. It is important to celebrate our mistakes and understand that there is no such thing as a bad mistake.

We hope you have enjoyed learning about our fabulous class. Thank you for reading our information. See you soon in Year 2!
