In year 2 we aim to ensure that every child is confident, successful and responsible whilst developing independent thinking skills and creativity.
In Years 1 and 2, subjects are taught in accordance with the Primary National Curriculum as follows: -
- Design and Technology
- Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
- Art and Design
- Physical Education
Children are organised in mixed ability classes according to their age, but there are occasions in the teaching of Maths and English when children may be taught in ability groups.
Other activities outside the National Curriculum are essential to provide a broad and balanced education for all children and form an integral part of the curriculum at Ringwood CE Infant School. These include: -
- PSHE and RHE
- Our Learning Values: independence, interdependence, spirituality, emotional intelligence, thinking and creativity
What we do:
In KS1 we have an exciting Integrated Curriculum which engages our children, promoting independent learning both inside and outside of school. Each topic integrates three main curriculum subjects, on of which is always English, and applies skills from a further two which encourages children to make connections in their learning.
We follow the National Curriculum 2014 covering the statutory subjects through inspiring and exciting topics.
The Integrated Curriculum units covered in Year 2 are in the links below:
