Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


As children move into Year 2 there is a more structured approach to learning. Children are seated in a range of groups according to the tasks they are set, ability groups are used for Core subjects, but mixed ability groups are also used to support children’s social interactions and to celebrate strengths in different areas of learning.


Please find additional details about this academic year below.

If you would like any further information on Year 2 at St. John’s please do not hesitate to arrange a visit. We always enjoy welcoming new friends.
