Please note, our curriculum is currently under review and there will be some exciting changes to come. We will inform all our parents about the changes once these have been finalised.



Phonics is being covered through our RWI scheme of work. The children work hard to decode, segment and blend their sounds to become more familiar with their spelling and reading. RWI is used alongside general English lessons to enhance the children’s learning even further.



Homework will be given out on a Fridayand returned on a Tuesday. Homework will be given in accordance to what the children have been learning that week. Homework will consist of:

  • Reading of school book
  • Maths or English
  • Common exception words
  • Times Tables


Reading books

Children will be heard read once a week in a guided reading session. Children will only change books when they have been heard to read at home and can fully comprehend their reading book. They will be given a set of questions to answer about the book to be completed at home. This is to be handed in when they change their book the following week. Children choose their own reading books and express an opinion as to why or why not they enjoyed their book.

Children are to bring in their books every day as we have volunteers that love to come in and hear your children read too.


P.E. Kits

Our PE day is on a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has their kit and appropriate footwear to take part in their lessons.  We also take part in a DAILY MILE run each day!  We enjoy using our outside track for this!



Children have access to a daily healthy snack and a small bottle of milk during the morning session. Throughout the day children have a water bottle labelled with their name that they can have access to throughout the day.


SATs information:

Year 2 teachers will inform parents about the SAT’s in advance of the National Tests, we will hold a parents meeting with advice on books to purchase and a Q&A session. Tests are carried out during May and will be tested on Reading, Maths and Spelling and Grammar.
