Y2 Curriculum

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



What will our Summer curriculum hold in store for us?


As the end of last half-term was a little different to how we thought it might be, this half-term we will be completing our Hot and Cold topic and continuing to find out more about animals and habitats in Science. Next half-term we will find out more about the Great Fire of London, materials and compare Cannock to coastal towns.


Lots of our exciting English work will be based on the above topics. We will read and write lots of different text styles including glossaries, stories, diaries, postcards and poetry.


In Maths we will be developing our statistics and shapes skills this half-term, while in Summer 2 we will recap our basic skills and look at different ways of measuring.


In RE we will recap our knowledge and understanding of the Easter and Pentecost stories, as well as celebrating May as the month of Mary, before looking at churches and the Mass in more detail.


RSHE: We will begin our 10:10 RSHE work this term by looking at the Holy Trinity and our feelings. After May half-term we will link our Special People and Emergency Services RSHE work to our Great Fire of London and Our Church topics and will also recap Life Cycles in Science. Please ask if you have any further questions about this content.


We will be using our geography knowledge, scientific skills, our senses, imagination, observational skills, colour, texture and shape work to create our artwork this term! We will link our Maths statistics work to our ICT lessons and will have the use of the ICT room or iPads for a day each week. Music will continue in the hall on Thursdays.


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