Curriculum Year Group Overview
Over the year, we cover the following topics:
Autumn term – Location, Location, Location
Spring term – Hot and Cold Places
Summer term – We’re all Superheroes!
Please find our curriculum map below. Each topic is taught through a key text. We ensure that throughout each term there are exciting experiences to engage the children in their topics.
Take a look at the key texts and supporting texts we will be studying throughout the year. These texts are used to facilitate engaging English lessons, reading lessons and of course, promote reading for pleasure!
In year 2 we take great pleasure in providing amazing educational experiences for our pupils.
Some of the educational trips we will be organising this year include exploring our local area in Nottingham in Autumn 1, visiting Nottingham Castle in Autumn 2, visiting Nottingham Arboretum in Summer 1 and a one-night residential camping experience at Wollaton Park in Summer 2.
Reading with your child for 10/15 minutes a day is imperative in ensuring they build fluency and understanding. It stimulates their imagination as well as expanding their understanding of the world. Your child will be sent home with two reading books: a Phonics reading book and a reading for pleasure book. Please ensure your child brings their book to school with them each day.
As well as this, termly homework projects and weekly maths and English homework is set on Seesaw. Please encourage your child to complete their homework weekly as this helps to reinforce what they are learning at school.
Each child has a Seesaw login. This is stuck at the front of the reading diary.
Your child also has a Times Table Rock Stars login and a Sumdog login. These are fun and engaging maths programs designed to develop your child’s mental maths skills.
