In Year 2 we aim to keep learning relevant, exciting, creative and fun, whilst providing children with the key skills, knowledge and tools to continue as independent learners. This is done using a termly topic which is adapted to children’s interests and needs. Children are encouraged to share their personal experiences and ask questions in order to expand their learning.
In RE, children will continue to explore how God is present in every beginning and further their understanding of celebrations throughout the liturgical year. Children will learn about the practices of the Church family and how these are encouraged through readings of the Word of God.
This year’s creative topic titles include: Bounce, Street detectives, Muck, Mess and Mixtures, Land Ahoy, Wriggle and Crawl and The Secret Garden.
Throughout Year 2, we aim to increase children’s independence and resilience. In all subjects, children are encouraged to find their own solutions to problems and to use prior learning to tackle new tasks and answer questions.
