Introduction to Year 2
Children in Year 2 are usually aged between six and seven years old. They follow an active curriculum which further promotes lots of talk and learning through developmental play. Phonic work continues and children begin to acquire more advanced reading skills together with learning how to write with increasing independence. Thematic work continues to be based around stories and the local environment and the children are provided with ‘hands on’ learning experiences. Further detail can be viewed in the Medium Term planning.
