Shadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring


Welcome toShadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring

Year 2

In Year 2 we have a varied and exciting curriculum where we teach key skills in English and Mathematics alongside the foundation subjects using a creative, topic based approach to learning. We have trips and visits planned from various people throughout the year which you can see on our overview.

We use Letters and Sounds for the teaching of daily phonics lessons and also use Letter Join scheme for cursive handwriting. The children also participate in comprehension activities throughout daily guided reading sessions and we listen to them read their home reading book and change this at least once or twice a week.


We encourage children to bring interesting objects in to class or work they have done at home to show to the rest of the class. We also have regular circle time activities and lots of time to talk and share our experiences and news with each other.
