Y2 Curriculum

What should children have learned by the end of Year 2? 



What will our Summer curriculum hold in store for us?


Y2 had lots of fun in Summer 1 - hunting for flowers, books and shapes around the school grounds; reading in the sunshine (in our PJs!); using straws to make 3D shapes and rocket launchers; discovering African countries, animals, habitats, stories and art; becoming dictionary detectives; making our own Paschal Candles and Trinity triangles; playing Bungalow outside and lots more! 


I wonder if Y2 will win the half-termly Reading Challenge! Can we win an afternoon of films and snacks? What are your favourite stories to read?


During Summer 2, we will find out more about our Church and the Mass (including having our first *outdoor* Class Mass of the year!), the Great Fire of London and properties of materials. We will also compare Cannock to the coast, find different ways of measuring and lots more!

Lots of our exciting English work will be based on the above topics. We will read and write lots of different text styles including stories, diaries, postcards and poetry. We will continue our 10:10 RSHE work this term with our Emotional Wellbeing and Keeping Safe topics. Please ask if you have any further questions about this content.


Y2 have the use of the ICT room or iPads for a day each week. Music will continue in the hall on Thursdays. PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.


Keep your eyes and ears open for special themed days throughout this term!
