Following the introduction of the new National Curriculum last year, we have produced a 'Topic Web' which outlines what will be covered in each subject relating, wherever possible to the 'topic' during the half term. This will help in giving you an idea of ways in which you can support your child.
Every parent who attended the 'Meet the Teacher' meeting will have received a leaflet outlining the National Curriculum expectations for children at the end of Year 2.
Topic Webs,together with the Key Learning Documents, can be found by clicking here
