General Information

In Year 2 we have high expectations and a love for learning.  The children will learn about many different concepts through investigative, experimental and practical approaches, similar to their time in Year 1.

The children will be expected to listen and concentrate for longer periods of time. As part of this, it is important that we continue to help the children develop their independence; examples of this include entering school in the morning independently and remembering their homework, book bags, lunch boxes and bottles of water or other things needed on specific days.

Useful Reminders

Please see the curriculum guide below for useful reminders about the Year 2 curriculum and expectations.

Curriculum Information

In Year 2 the children are grouped according to a wide range of criteria for different subject areas including working as a whole class,  in small groups or as individuals, so that tasks can be both independent and teacher led with a focus on independent investigative learning. We have three themes this year, they are as follows:

“Step Back in Time” – Exploring the past                                                                          

“Down at the Bottom of the Garden” – Plants and the environment         

“Extraordinary Explorers” – exploring the world around us                        

At Norwood Green Infant school, the curriculum is well planned and delivered  effectively and creatively to aid success for all, following the National Curriculum and subject schemes of work. At the beginning of a unit of work, we encourage the children to share  and  discuss what they already know about the theme or concept and what they would like to find out over the course of the term. This has proven to be very successful, informative and highly motivating for the children and staff.
