Year 2 Curriculum Overview

Children arrive at 8.40am via the classroom and may be collected from the same place at 3.10pm. Please see the image below of our school timetable...

It is extremely important that children read on a daily basis, with opportunities for an adult to hear them read/ discuss their reading. In Year 2, the expectation is that they read for 10 minutes every night and have their reading record signed by an adult. We encourage children to read their book more than once so that they become more familiar with their book and can read it fluently and with expression. Reading books will be collected in and a new book given out on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Each week, your child will also be set a task on Reading Eggs and Mathletics. The tasks will be set on a Monday and are to be completed by the following Monday. This is when the class teachers will set new tasks. They will be not onerous tasks and can be completed by your child independently. Both your child’s Reading Eggs and Mathletics log in details are stuck to their Reading Diary. If you need any support in logging on or if you have misplaced your child’s log in details, please contact a member of staff who will be available to help. 

Throughout the year, we will be teaching our 'Relationship and Health Education' programme, using our Catholic resource, 'Life to the Full'. Below you can see when we are planning to teach each module so that you can continue important conversations with your child at home. These dates are subject to change, but we will inform you of any changes on class dojo.

If you would like to know more information about the programme, please follow the link to access the Parent Portal. If you then have any further questions, please contact a member of the Year 2 team and we will talk it through with you.
