Learning Together, Achieving the Extraordinary!

Year 2 Curriculum Information

Our curriculum ensures learning is effective, exciting and above all, relevant to the needs of our children.

 

As a Rights Respecting school our curriculum is underpinned by the Unicef Charter for the Rights of the Child and our School Learning Values of Independence, Resilience, Respect, Creativity, Team-work and Aspiration.

 

We intend for all of our pupils to secure firm foundations in English and Mathematics and this underpins a growing excellence in other subjects.  Our topic-led and knowledge and skills based curriculum offers a broad range of subjects through Early Years and Key Stage One.  We believe in bringing learning to life, both indoors and out, with an emphasis on engaging and purposeful learning.

 

While importance is placed on children learning core skills of English and Maths, we place a great value on developing the "whole child" through a broad and engaging curriculum.  We want our children to be confident individuals who are able to lead safe, happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.
