Dear Parents and Carers,

Year Two - Curriculum Newsletter

Welcome back! We have planned lots of exciting topics and stories to engage the children over the course of the Spring Term and we have explained the curriculum we will be following below. If you would like any further information please email


Our expectation at Broadford is that every child should do the following every night:

·         15 minutes reading to an adult and note in the reading record

·         15 minutes practicing spellings

·         Rehearsing times tables facts (including multiplication and division)


The children will receive spellings each Monday in a spelling book. These words will usually be either ‘red words’ (words that cannot be sounded out) or ‘high frequency words’ (words that they will use in the writing frequently). Please practise these spellings with your child each night. 

Please ensure that your child brings their red spelling book to school every Friday. They will complete their test in the book as this allows you to see their results. We will then send new spellings home in the book each Monday.

You may find that some words come up in the tests more than once. 

Curriculum Information

We have included a summary of the topics which the children will be covering this half term. If you would like to make any suggestions of what you or your child would like to learn in relation to the topics taught, please get in touch through our Year Two email . We welcome any suggestions you may have.

Yours Sincerely,


Miss Davis               Miss Hamilton                    Miss Hannan
