Welcome to Year 2!

In Year 2 the curriculum is taught around topics and themes. This ensures that learning is practical, meaningful and links together.

The video below tells you which teachers are working in Year 2 in September 2020 and shows you the Year 2 classrooms.

Maths, English and Phonics are all taught as separate lessons to ensure children gain the skills needed to make the best possible progress, although we link English to our topics wherever possible.

We use a variety of book banded books, which reflect a range of real readers to capture the interest of our children and promote a love of reading.

Regular newsletters and RM Unify pages detail what children are learning each half term.  Families also have opportunities to come into school to work with their children and learn more about our curriculum. 

We plan our learning around the National Curriculum.  For Religious Education, we follow the Sandwell Sacre Syllabus.

Homework day is Friday.  Your child will receive Maths, Phonics, and Reading comprehension homework.
