Year 2

Welcome

At Worsbrough Bank End Primary School, we work hard to ensure that our children receive an enriched and bespoke curriculum that is exciting and motivates all pupils. We strive to inspire our children to have aspirations and aim high in everything that they do. As a staff team, we aim to provide all our pupils with equal opportunities to ensure that they become fully rounded characters with a clear understanding of values such as equality, friendship and trust. Our children will be encouraged to overcome any challenges that they face by inspiring them to become resilient and to persevere when they find their learning difficult. In Year 2, we use real life experiences to bring new concepts of learning to life to create a stimulating learning environment. We also provide children with the opportunity to become inquisitive learners which allows them to look at the world in awe and wonder.

Intent

Our approach to Year 2 intends to develop character and awareness as a citizen of our local and wider community embodying British Values. We deliver an education with character through a well-rounded curriculum. 

Children are provided with the opportunity to read to an adult in school. Adults also read stories to the children each day to promote a love for reading and reading for pleasure. High quality literacy lessons are taught daily using a variety of quality texts which are often linked to our class topics. Reading is also heavily embedded into our literacy curriculum by following the teaching sequence of gather, skills, apply.  

Daily maths lessons are completed which provide all our children with the opportunity to explore and discuss mathematical concepts. Concrete resources are always available to support our pupils' understanding.  

Our carefully selected topics follow the interests of the children and aim to motivate and inspire them. 

Year 2 pupils will have the opportunity to:  

  • experience an extra-curricular club which promotes and develops their personal interests and talents.  

  • perform on stage at a Christmas or Summer Time event.

  • read a range of texts from over 20 different authors.

  • plant a seed and watch it grow.

  • learn about our local history and how our local area has developed and changed over time.  

  • become an artist by creating their own collage linked to The Great Fire of London.  

  • represent themselves, and our school, at a sporting or academic event.
