Homework and reading: Homework is sent out and collected every Friday in Year Two to be returned by Thursday to be marked. Spellings are tested on a Friday.

The reading expectation is three times a week at home.

English

In Year Two we cover poetry, narrative and non-fiction across the school year.

We reinforce and develop English skills through Grammar Hammer, Phonics sessions, Book Talk sessions, weekly spelling tests, speaking & listening activities and regular Talk for Reading sessions.

We link the English to our topic of study at the time as far as possible and use opportunities for applying English skills in topic lessons.

Singapore Maths

Year Two are taught Maths using Inspire Maths which is based on the Singapore methods of teaching. This provides all children the opportunity to make progress and the use of ‘Same Day Intervention’ means children get additional input for those skills they have found challenging that day.

Children develop understanding of number and calculation methods as well as having daily ‘Maths Meetings’ at the end of Maths sessions to practise and apply their skills.
