At Brill School, English, Maths and Core Skills are taught through focused daily lessons; usually in the morning. For other lessons we have in recent year moved away from narrow subject based teaching and have developed a curriculum that is imaginative, child focused and cross curricular.
Year 2’s thematic topic units for this year are:
Reading books: The children either have a colour banded reading book suited to their reading ability to read or a book from the library. Our daily Guided Reading lessons will give children the opportunity to explore a variety of texts as a class, strengthen their core reading ability and develop specific comprehension skills.
Pencil cases: Please do not send your children in with pencil cases. We will be providing the children with all necessary equipment while they are here.
Spellings: We will cover the core spelling patterns from the National Curriculum as well as tricky and common use words in class. Further details on our approach to learning how to spell can be found on the school Literacy page.
