Curriculum

In Year 2 we learn lots of exciting and new things across all areas of the Curriculum. There’s lots to do……in Year 2.

Literacy
We are following the Read, Write, Inc programme which is outstanding and we are extremely excited to see what creative writing we are able to produce in Year 2. We will also be reading lots of interesting books and taking part in lots of talking and listening activities. You’ll be amazed to see what we can do.

Numeracy
We will be learning lots about Processes in Maths, Number, Data Handling, Measures and Shape and Space. We especially enjoy completing our numeracy tasks in an interactive manner using our white board and activities during Play. We also complete Paired Maths Scheme where we take home exciting Numeracy games and play these at home. Numeracy is lots of fun.

World Around Us
Here are some of the exciting topics we can look forward to studying this year…These thrilling topics will mean there will be lots to keep us busy and lots of cross curricular links to enjoy.

·  Mighty Me

·  Harvest & Halloween

·  Chocolate

·  Christmas

·  Our Neighbourhood

·  Fairytales & Fantasy

·  Springtime Flowers

·  Jungle

·  Summer Sunshine

We also complete lots of STEM experiments and investigations through these topics to test things out and discover new facts. We can’t wait to share our knowledge.

Personal Development and Mutual Understanding
We all love PDMU because we get to explore our personal and emotional development, health and safety, relationships with others, and how we can all work together for the good of our community. We are able to discuss all our hopes and fears in a safe environment during Circle Time and we can also have fun in doing so! We use the PATHS and NSPCC Keeping Safe Programme in PDMU and we love selecting the Child of the Day and sharing our compliments with them.

P.E
We will have P.E. every Friday morning. We will also receive expert coaching from the Ulster Council. Please bring the appropriate P.E. kit on this day.

The Arts
In Year 2 we are exposed to lots of wonderful opportunities to be creative. We especially love participating in a variety of music, dance and art activities that we can complete through our cross curricular topics.

Our ‘superstars of the future’ demonstrate their wonderful talents on various occasions. We perform a selection of “hits” to the rest of the school where we accompany music from different genres with a selection of instrumentation.

Religion
We follow the Grow in Love Programme and we learn about how important God is to us in our lives. We explore all the different celebrations throughout the church year and learn to recite new prayers including: Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be. Fr. Kevin and Fr. Daniel also visit us throughout the school year.

ICT

We use ICT in various aspects of the school day to enhance our learning. We use IWBs, ipads, laptops and beebots to explore and develop new skills in using ICT. We look forward to linking up with the Nerve Centre to extend our skills in coding as well as animation.
