Welcome to Y2!
On this page we will record some of the exciting learning and investigating we do in Year 2, as the children continue to develop a wide breadth of skills and knowledge to take away with them when they leave us in the summer.
Our role in Y2 is to consolidate all the learning the children have been doing at Lydgate Infant School, as well as equip them for their next adventures as juniors. We strive to ensure children have a firm grasp of literacy and numeracy skills, as well as a love of learning. Through studying lots of different topics, our hope is that every child will discover what excites them and identify their own special skills and strengths.
We look forward to sharing our learning and exploring on this blog, and hope this will give you an insight into everything we get up to in Year 2.

During the current period of school closure, the school will be working with Sheffield Children's University (see the 'Extra-Curricular' tab under 'Parent Info') to signpost online learning materials, and will also be emailing home learning activities and other information directly to yourselves as F2 parents and carers to support your child's learning at home.
