Year 2

Year 2 is a very important year in your child's education as it's the year they develop independence in their learning and acquire self-confidence.  It's also the year that the Key Stage 1 SATs take place in reading, writing, maths and science.  Our motto in year 2 is: Always try your best!  We are looking forward to a year of hard work but also lots of fun.


St Teresa's offers a thematic approach to the curriculum, where we largely teach through topics or themes so that the work pupils do in different subjects is related.  Additional work is planned in Mathematics and English and this is increasingly the case as your child gets older.  A topic usually covers a term or half-term.

  • Sounds Write
