Class 2 will cover a series of half-termly mini topics. We organise these topics carefully to take into account both Year 1 and Year 2 pupils. Some pupils will cover both Year A and Year B however pupils that completed their Year 1 in Class 1 will only cover one of these years. We have taken this into consideration with our planning ensuring that all pupils have covered the KS1 National Curriculum by the end of Year 2.
When planning our topics, as you will see from the Curriculum Maps for each class we take into account previous and future learning. We also explore key concepts and key vocabulary for any given topic. Our teachers use 'Knowledge Organisers' to support pupils' learning at the start of any topic or unit of work- we identify the key knowledge, skills, concepts and vocabulary and create an organiser that is pupil friendly.
