The Year 2 Curriculum

In year 2, we cover a wide range of topics each year and we try to develop the children's independence. We promote and support the children to have a love for learning whilst also making progress in all areas of the curriculum. You can read more about the topics and questions we cover in the 'Year 2 Information’ letter.

Children will read with an adult at least once per week during guided reading sessions. Your child may be asked to read with an adult on any day so please ensure that your child has their individual reading book, guided reading book and reading diary in their bags each day.

At the end of year 2, the children will complete the Year 2 SATs tests for reading and maths. This is something that we will be working on with your children throughout the year in their day to day learning in school. The homework that we set is the best way for you to support your children for these.


Weekly homework will be set on mymaths and Edshed and we will be teaching your children how to use this independently over the course of the year so that they can take ownership for their learning. The weekly homework will consist of Times Tables Rock Stars, Maths and spelling. Your children should also be reading at home regularly and we recommend reading with them for a minimum of 10 minutes, 5 times per week. 

Further Information

For further information, please read the ‘Year 2 Information’ letter which clarifies when your child has PE and any trips that we have planned for the year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let us know by contacting your child's class teacher at the end of each day, via email or by sending us a message on Class Dojo.

Kind regards,

The Year 2 Team
