Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


Welcome to our Year 2 class page. Here we have some photos that will give you a little glimpse into what we get up to each day. As you can see we have lots of fun, enjoy being curious but because we are the oldest in Key Stage 1, we are also learning how to do lots of learning in our books too! At the bottom of the page you'll also find details about what we are currently learning and some useful website too.

We are currently working on revamping our curriculum using the 'Learning Challenge Curriculum'. We have put together an overview for each year group which outlines both knowledge and skills which all children can expect to achieve during their time with us at Blackrod Church School. We strive to provide rich learning opportunities, setting children up with knowledge for life. Our overviews are complete for the first half term and will be updated as we move through this transitional year.

Year Group Curriculum Overview

By the end of Year 2, all children should be able to read and spell all of the common exception words on the document below. You could help your child at home to practise reading them and practise writing them, before moving onto writing them in sentences.
