GSO Test

Year Two

We have currently have three Year 2 classes at Riverside. 


Children throughout the school are involved in the creative development of their Learning Challenge. Each week the children set themselves a smaller Learning Challenge question to help drive their learning forward. 

The planned themes for Year 2 are outlined below. Due to the nature of the Learning Challenge Curriculum, these themes could change.

Term 1: Where is the pirate’s treasure?

 Term 2: Can you travel around the world in 80 days?

Term 3: Where does our food come from?

Term 4: What happens to the food we eat?

Term 5: What was it like when the Queen came to the throne?

Term 6: Why do we like to be besides the seaside?

The children have a daily phonics session and a daily literacy and numeracy session. At Riverside we use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme of work.  Click here for a link to Oxford Owl for ebooks, games and ideas to support your child with their reading.

In Year 2 children are assessed in line with statutory assessment tests (SATs).  This takes place in the summer term.
