year 2 curriculum

In Year Two we follow the National Curriculum on the areas of learning we need to cover in all subjects. However, as an academy we are afforded the flexibility to be creative in how we cover each subject.  Click here for a link to the Year 2 national curriculum.

Our curriculum is topic based and is constructed around the interests of the children. We still fully support having play as an instrumental part of the learning process. We introduce new concepts, especially in Maths, through a more interactive and hands-on approach before the children begin the process of recording in their books.  English is taught through using a range of books: fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Geography, History, Science etc. all have elements of writing and reading and therefore are scaffolding the children’s learning of English.  English is presented in a number of different ways; for example it may be in the children’s English books, topic books, through presentation, hot seating or in our floor books or Learn Together books.  Floor books and Learn Together books are a wonderful way for parents and visitors to encapsulate at a glance what we do during our days at school.
