We have a packed year with loads to get through, we love a good challenge and aren’t afraid of making mistakes – after all, it’s all part of how we learn. For a better look at what we do, have a look at the curriculum topics below…

Year 2


All Year 2 children are expected to complete their set homework. Developing a responsible attitude towards homework in primary school will help your child to become more organised. Please check their homework with them and encourage neat presentation. Good quality homework will always be rewarded. The homework set will be as follows:

English and Maths—This will be given on a Wednesday. Each piece is designed to consolidate the children’s learning from that week, or to give them the chance to independently apply a skill they’ve been developing. Each piece should take no longer than half an hour each to complete and is due in on the Monday of the following week.

Reading—The children are expected to read at home at least three times per week— please record in their reading diary.

Spellings—Each half-term the children will be given a hand-out with the spelling rules/patterns we will be focusing on during lessons.

Topic-based projects—Each half-term the children will be set an open-ended homework project based on their topic.

Additional Information

Exciting trips, workshops and visits are planned throughout the year to enhance your child’s learning. Information on our school trips will be sent to parents when necessary.
