A very warm welcome to Year 2! Throughout the year we want to inspire and nurture our children through fun and engaging opportunities offering them a broad and balanced curriculum that allows for creative thinking and the development of independent skills. We want to increase independence and resilience for their future, supporting our children to flourish and thrive. We aim to teach this through a range of fun and exciting activities, which underpin the learning of key skills across the curriculum. We celebrate our achievements in all areas of the curriculum and always encourage each other to follow our Churchtown values. 

Our journey begins with immersing ourselves in quality texts such as The Bog Baby and Traction Man leading on to creative writing across a range of genres. Across the curriculum we will explore other exciting experiences across a range of subjects as we will delve into researching historical figures and discovering similarities and differences between Southport, UK and Southport, Australia! Through these lessons we promote life long learners. We fully believe that children learn at their own pace and in different ways and we provide them scaffolds to do this. We encourage children to take ownership of their learning and be prepared to challenge themselves. 

Alongside these fantastic topics, the children should also look forward to, fieldwork in Botanic Gardens, playing a starting role in their Christmas performance and our school trip to Blackpool Zoo.

Year 2 Curriculum

Below is the curriculum for Year 2. This has been broken down by subjects and then by half-terms:

School Clubs

Parent Information Afternoon


In Year 2, we believe that homework should consolidate the learning that has taken place in school and inform families of the children’s learning as they share this knowledge with you at home.

To support this, please choose and complete 6 activities from the grid over the course of the half-term. Please can your child bring this in every Thursday so it can be celebrated in class on a Friday. Work can be completed in homework books or, where appropriate, brought in its original form e.g. a photograph or poster etc.

We teach the children to take pride and responsibility for their own work and we strive to develop their independence, therefore we expect each homework task to be completed with care and to the best of their ability.

Our weekly homework offer in Year 2 includes:
1.    Curriculum Homework Menu
2.    Reading- please continue to aim to read with your child at least 3 times a week.
3.    Maths - we would also like your child to continue to practise their maths at home, focusing on counting in steps of 2s, 5s and 10s.
4.    Focus words - Now your child has settled well into Year 2, we would like your child to practise their ‘red words’. Red words are common exception words – this means they are words that don’t always follow the usual phonics patterns when we read & spell these words. We will put our focus words inside your child’s reading records every week so they can practise reading & spelling these words at home. In class, we will learn to read and spell these words together throughout the week.

Homework should take no longer than approximately 20 minutes per week to complete.

Feedback for homework will primarily be given either verbally or through self/peer marking during whole-class feedback where appropriate. Teaching staff will ensure any misconceptions are addressed during feedback given to support progress and understanding.

We can’t wait to see your work!

Thank you so much for your continued support!
