In Year 2 we follow the national curriculum. This comprises of eleven subjects: English, Mathematics, Information and Communication Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, Design and Technology, P.E. and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education.
During Year 2 the children will be encouraged to become more independent which will include sorting out their belongings in the morning and at the end of the day. At the end of the day we also encourage the children to look for the adult picking them up rather than relying on an adult to direct them to the adult.

Curriculum Statement – Autumn 2019
Your child will be given a reading log and told which colour band to choose book from. These books are stored in the classroom and the children quickly get into a routine of changing their books when they come into class in the morning. We recommend that you read with your child a minimum of 5 times a week and record this in their reading log. We have a reading challenge where by the children gain a ‘Marvellous Me’ for 5 reads during the week recorded in their reading log.
Times Tables Rock Stars
Your child will be given a set of words on a Thursday to learn for the following Thursday. Please practice them at home with your child. Some children will need daily practice and others less frequent sessions. It is also useful to review spellings from previous weeks to consolidate the learning and to ensure these have formed part of your child’s stock of learnt vocabulary.
The expectation for Homework is that children read nightly, and throughout the week practise their set spellings and times tables. Each half term, children will be given a homework information sheet with enrichment activity ideas.
