Year 2

Within the Key Stage 1 curriculum, Year 2 will cover the areas below:



Through a food-based topic, we will study different texts including stories, recipes and poems. The grammar element will focus on recognising adjectives, nouns, verbs and contracted forms. We will also use and apply commas in lists.

There is a strong expectation of daily reading and comprehension activities at home for readers of all levels.  Make sure the Reading Diaries are signed as they are checked daily, and there will be rewards for reading each day!

The spellings are set weekly. A worksheet will come home on a Friday to support the learning of the spelling and the spelling test will take place the following Thursday.


We will be looking at different ways to add and subtract mentally, including using place value of digits, partitioning, magic pairs/number bonds to 10.  We will also begin to understand multiplication of 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.


We will be learning about all living things including humans, finding out about their basic needs for survival and sorting them according to different criteria.  We will also focus on how to keep healthy through exercise, healthy food choices and hygiene.



We will study line, pattern and colour to produce different designs and make up a class patchwork.  In the second half of the term we will be producing observational drawings of poppies.


We will be learning to log on and off correctly.  We will use ‘Word' to explore basic word processing skills.

Design & Technology

We will be designing and making our own telephones/poppies/linking to our history/art topics.


We will be using basic geographical vocabulary to refer to key physical features and key human features in the local area and begin to name continents and oceans of the world.


We will learn about the invention of the telephone and how its use and design have changed within living memory followed by the story of the Gunpowder Plot.


We will take part in French speaking and listening activities with a specialist teacher.


Throughout the year, a specialist teacher will be working with the year group, exploring pulse, tone, rhythm and learning to play the violin.


This term, MK Springers will be leading our Indoor gymnastics sessions. In Outdoor Games, we will be focusing on fundamental movement skills including agility, balance and coordination.


Our work will focus on Christianity, especially how the local community uses the church.
