Year 2 Curriculum

Year 2 marks the second and final year of the National Curriculum framework for Key Stage 1. 

Pupils still continue to work on phonics understanding for spelling and reading, Talk for Writing and a mastery approach to Mathematics.  In addition, the knowledge linked to the different subject domains builds on that of Year 1. 

Prior learning is recapped before each unit and new knowledge is presented in small steps.  Whilst both guided and independent practice continue to be used in lessons, there is an emphasis on greater independence from our pupils throughout Year 2.

The following documents outline the minimum amount of knowledge that will be taught to Year 2 pupils throughout each unit.
