This year we have sourced a new curriculum for our non core subjects that has impacted well on children’s attainment and motivation nationwide. This new curriculum is published by Cornerstones. Our new curriculum is based on inspirational learning activities which take place in a classroom environment and allow children to learn in a way that motivates and interests them. Cornerstones will provide our children with a good level of challenge, giving them opportunities to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding across the full range of National Curriculum subjects. Year 2 will experience 6 Imaginative Learning Projects in a year. Each individual project is split into sections, which see children progress through four stages of learning: Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. We are confident that our new curriculum will instil in our children a curiosity and love of learning / school, that it will develop their levels of mental health and wellbeing and ultimately will provide opportunities for each of them to achieve their full potential.
Core Subject Priorities
- We are kind, gentle. inclusive and supportive.
- We look after property.
Due to current restrictions, homework is not being sent home with the children. Children are still expected to read and to practise the 2, 5 and 10 times tables every night. Click on the yellow maths games star to find a number of links to websites which will help children practise times tables and other maths skills. Children will have a daily spelling test in their RWI group and there is a link below to the common exception words which children are expected to be able to read and spell by the end of Year 2.
Children may also wish to extend their learning beyond the knowledge organiser if they have a specific interest in the topic.
Please use the knowledge organiser as a starting point for any extra study. The information on these sheets should be easily recalled by the children once the topic is completed.
