Welcome to Year 2! This year, children will continue to develop as enthusiastic and independent learners, with opportunities to challenge our thinking, take risks and learn from our mistakes.

Here, you can find an overview of the Year 2 Curriculum. You can use this information to discuss with your child what they have learned and continue to support their learning at home.
