In Year 2, our lessons incorporate a combination of whole class teaching, small group work. These become more structured as the year progresses.
This is the final year of Key Stage 1 where we prepare children for life in Key Stage 2. They are encouraged to be independent learners, challenge themselves and take ownership of their learning. We teach a broad and balanced curriculum centred around engaging topics that allow children to acquire new vocabulary that they can use across English and topic.
The Learning Environment makes an active contribution to children’s independent learning. Interactive displays, high frequency words, technical and ambitious vocabulary, text features, book corners and easily accessible resources all contribute towards pupil progress.
Each classroom has a topic display board. This shows the learning journey a class is taking, including pictures and examples of work. The display should include; what the children’s perceptions and understanding were at the beginning of the topic, what key questions the children wanted to find out and the tasks they were involved in to answer these questions.
