In Year 2 we take what the children have learned in Year 1 and quickly begin bracing them for the end of their Key Stage One journey.
We teach the children writing, English spelling, punctuation and grammar (ESPG), mathematics, phonics, science, history, geography, computing, Personal health social and emotional education (PHSE), physical education (PE) and religious education in our curriculum.
At the end of Year 2, there are national standardised tests in Maths, Reading and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar where the children have to attain a scaled score of 100. This is to assess whether the child is working at National Age Related Expectations.
Here are the termly topic focus for the children in Balou and Bagheera classes:
Term 1: Carnival of Animals
Term 2: Houses and Homes
Term 3: Countries and Cultures
Term 4: Florence Nightingale
Term 5: Splash
Term 6: Splash (continued)
