Year 2 Curriculum Overview

There are three classes in Year 2, all with a teacher and a full time Learning Support Assistant. The class teacher is responsible for pastoral care and the teaching of English, mathematics, science, history, geography and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education).

The children are taught ICT, music and physical education by subject specialists. Arabic and Islamic Studies are taught to our Arabic speaking and Muslim children in Year 2.

Timetables are available via the parent portal. In Year 2 homework is flexible. Reading books and new spelling words are sent every week and occasionally we will set the children some maths and English if we feel it is appropriate. Homework should not take more than 20 or 30 minutes at this stage as children are already tired from a full day’s work at school.
