Year 2 Overview

Welcome to year 2. Children will have PE on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays so please ensure they have their kit in school on these days. Children are dropped off and picked up from the classroom door. Home learning is set on J2 every Friday and children are expected to read every day at home.

The Year 2 Curriculum

There are no longer any statutory assessments in year 2 but it is important that children prepare for the transition to key stage 2. Children begin a knowledge rich humanities curriculum and build on the beginners Spanish they learnt in year 1. Reading lessons develop their fluency and promote a deeper understanding of the text.

Year 2 Home Learning

Home learning is set every Friday with a timetable on J2Launch. Children complete the work online and in their home learning book. Children have a week to complete their home learning and teachers will check and reward children in class. Please encourage your child to complete their home learning on time and celebrate their achievements with them.
