Year 2 Curriculum

Our experienced and highly dedicated teachers and assistants in Year 2 pride themselves on their creative approach to teaching. In Year 2, we continue to build upon the foundations that we have laid down in Reception and Year 1, whilst preparing children for SATs in the summer term. We aim to provide a creative, happy and secure learning environment where all children are encouraged to try their best and achieve their full potential. We ensure that the classrooms are an exciting and stimulating place to be, where we hold high expectations for children to work hard and achieve whilst having fun.

We continue to focus on phonics.  We have dedicated daily phonics sessions, tailored to meet every child’s ability. We recognise that every child is special and unique.  We strive, therefore, to cater for the needs of all individuals.

We provide our children with a broad, balanced and creative curriculum that excites their curiosity and ignites a passion for learning.

We also ensure that the children have the skills they need to be a successful member of our modern British society. We ensure they have an understanding of different beliefs and cultures and learn acceptance, tolerance and respect towards others.

By the end of Year 2 we want our children:

  • To be happy, enthusiastic, inquisitive learners
  • To be creative learners at home
  • To work independently
  • To communicate confidently in class
  • To develop an awareness of the needs of others in class, school and their local and world community.
  • To show empathy and willingness to help others
