Learning in Year 2
At Thomas A’ Becket Infant School we aim to offer an inclusive and accessible creative curriculum for all of our children (regardless of race, disability, gender and social background). Within our curriculum planning we personalise learning to meet the needs of the children’s individual needs and stage of development wherever possible.
In Year 2 the children continue the National Curriculum and their learning provides evidence for the related assessments begun by the Year One teachers. They are required to complete 'End of Key Stage' tasks in Maths and English (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar, Reading x 2, Maths x 2). These are kept low-key to prevent children/adults becoming anxious and we will not advise parents of the exact dates. You will receive the results with the 'Annual Report'.
The 'End of Key Stage' tasks are not the ultimate means of assessing your child. It is a 'Can Do' Curriculum, so children have to achieve all areas and this has to be evidenced independently in their work in addition to the test results.
The terminology used to report on your child's attainment/progress:
'On/Not on Track' to meet age-related expectations and 'Working Below'/'Towards'/'At' or 'At Greater Depth'.
Below you will find the 'Parent Planner' which provides information about the children's learning in Year 2. You will also find this term's 'Choiceboard' which is specific to Year 2.
