Welcome to the team
Mr Lyons - Class Teacher Mrs Tuck- Teaching Assistant
Welcome to Lyons Leopards' web page. My name is Mr Lyons and I am extremely excited about teaching Year 2's this year. For the children they are now the oldest infants and they will have to work hard. Yet I know they are ready to challenge themselves to be the best that they can be as Year 2's.
Our PE days will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that children have their indoor and outdoor PE kits in school on these days, and that they have any earrings removed. Homework will be given out on Friday and must be returned by Wednesday, Thank you.

Year 2 SATs
At the end of Year 2 children will be undertaking SATs tests within school. Although these are statutory tests children will be reassured that it is just a chance to show what they know and to try their best, not something to worry over.
More information will be given closer to the time but this link provides an overview of what they entail:
The class are all completing their reading challenge. Every time they read 10 times with an adult they move upa the reading mountain challenge. When they reach the top of the mountain they can choose a brand new book to keep from Mrs Dainty!
A list of example questions can be found below which help to greater develop children's understanding when reading.
