Curriculum

In Year 2 your child’s learning is based on the National curriculum for all subject areas. This ensures that every child receives a wide and varied curriculum allowing them to experience a breadth of topics that are linked together to provide cross curricular activities where possible. We will continue to make the curriculum interesting, challenging and relevant to their lives and future needs. We aim to provide experiences that broaden their horizons, expand their interest and engage their imagination so they are inspired to believe that they can achieve their full potential.

We also spend time in Year 2 working collaboratively, building teamwork and leadership skills. We focus on building resilience and resourcefulness, getting the children to think and act for themselves. We discuss a wide range of areas in PSHE allowing children to have a voice and discuss their feelings and concerns. 

   

If you want to know more about the topics your child will be covering in Year 2 the curriculum overview is available on this website along with a more detailed subject overview - just click on the curriculum link.  

 

                                 

 

We love visitors in Year 2!

    

“Sergeant” Powell has been into year 2 to talk about what life was like for a WW1 soldier. 

The children looked at real artefacts from WW1 and Mrs Powell was dressed up as a soldier. The children practiced some army drills too! 

 

Home learning

To help support your child’s learning in school -

Spellings will be posted each week on Dojo to allow the children to practice them at home as well as school. 

All pupils should be accessing ActiveLearn regularly as the books are set to their individual level www.activelearn.co.uk. They can also access Lexia www.lexiacore5.co.uk which supports reading progression through activities.

Children can also access RM maths www.rmeasimaths.com and Sumdog   www.sumdog.co.uk at home to help consolidate the maths they are covering in class.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s learning or progress please speak to one of the team, who are always happy to help.

 

                

PE

PE for Y2 is on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please ensure your child is not wearing earrings or in the event of recent piercings only, plasters are provided.   

                 

Teacher/Parent contact

As a school we are now using the Dojo website to allow contact between parents and staff. If you have not already signed up please give your email address to school so we can send you an invitation to connect. Dojo is also being used as the class reward system.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s learning or progress please contact their teacher through the office or on Dojo
