Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

Year 2 is a fun and exciting place where children are challenged to explore, investigate and learn lots of new skills and to apply them confidently and independently in a variety of ways.

We work closely with Year 1 and follow the same topics over a 2 year cycle. It’s a great place to explore and learn all about the castles; local history; the Great Fire of London; the Jurassic Coast; the emergency services and many more engaging topics!

Topic-based work allows children to explore a theme in more depth through reading, writing, maths, science, art, DT, music and to really immerse themselves in it.

There will be many exciting events happening during the year including dressing up days, visitors and trips out of the classroom.

Mrs Ireland, Miss Charlesworth, Ms Johnson, and Ms Bury are there to ensure that learning is fun and the children make the best progress they can throughout the year.

Year 2 Curriculum

Phonics is an essential tool in teaching children to read. Here at Radipole we use the Story Time Phonics scheme, sometimes referred to as the Phonics Fairy! Children love using real books to access new sounds. You can read more about the Story Time Phonics scheme here.
