Our Year 2 Learning


We are enjoy a broad curriculum which we are proud of, this covers a range of subjects that develop our children and their learning. We believe that this is a fundamental part of supporting children with their understanding of the World in which they live. Please see highlights of our half term which we will continue to update below.


Here is the curriculum map for Year 2, it contains all the exciting, interesting things we will be learning this year. During the course of the year, in line with the children's interests topics may move slightly. If topics do change, you will be made aware on this in the class newsletter. 


On our class page, you can take a look at what we will be learning about each term, as well as keep track of any important reminders or special dates for the children.


End of Key Stage 1 Assessments


Year 2 is a milestone year in your child/ren's educational journey as they come to end of Key Stage 1. 


At present, the attainment of all children in England is assessed at the end of Year 2.  This assessment is often referred to as "Key Stage 1 SATS".  


Whilst the children will take tests in maths, reading and spelling, punctuation and grammar, at Year 2 teacher assessment always takes precedence over a test score.  Teacher assessment will also determine where the children are in writing and science. 


We will explain all the arrangements for these assessments at a meeting in the Spring Term.
