As part of our teaching we use the following schemes of work to support the children with their learning in Year 2.
Maths - Abacus
English - Wordsmith
Science - Science Bug
Phonics - Phonics bug and phonics play.
Abacus is a maths toolkit that has been written for the new primary maths curriculum. It’s been carefully crafted on a robust approach to creating inspired and confident young mathematicians. To help children make sense of and practice their maths, Abacus provides a combination of maths games, interactive activities, pupil videos and pupil worksheets, focused around an interactive pupil world where your child can earn rewards and personalise their learning
Our school uses English programme called Wordsmith. Your child’s work with Word smith will mostly be class based. We sometimes allocate the children some of the books so that they can enjoy them again at home. The books in Wordsmith are all accessed online, and can be opened via any kind of device ‐ whether that be a PC, laptop, tablet or even phone.
Science Bug is an exciting hands-on science programme designed for today’s curious kids. It’s been designed to help to spark imagination, fuel curiosity and nurture inspired and confident young scientists. It includes practical investigations and outdoor learning to get children doing science with their own hands.
