Year 2 Curriculum Map

From A to B

The letters ‘A’ and ‘B’ can be used to mean anything we like. Often, we use 'from A to B' to talk about travel from one place to another. Think about all the different places you travel. In this unit we will be learning about the different types of journeys we can make, across land, sea and air. In order to do this, we will need to be geographers, historians and engineers. How we travel is constantly changing, so what does the future hold for travel and journeys?

Super Humans

In Super Humans, we will be learning about how our bones, muscles, senses and nerves all connect to make us human. As scientists, we will be investigating the ways in which these body parts interact with our brain, enabling us to see, hear, smell, taste and touch.


In Buildings, we will be learning all about the different structures we see in towns and cities around the world. We will explore our locality to look at old and new buildings and use this as inspiration for Art.  As geographers, we will be learning about how houses and structures differ from country to country and the purposes they serve. As engineers, we will be exploring the Science behind the construction of structures throughmaking models and testing materials. What is your home like? How is it similar and different to other homes around the world?

Live and Let Die

In Live and Let Live, we will be learning about living things and what they need in order to survive. How do we know what living things need? How do you know that you are alive, but a stone has never been alive? To find out the answers to these questions, we will need to be scientists, geographers and ecologists.

Magic Toy Maker

In The Magic Toymaker, we will be learning all about the world of toys and the role that they play in entertaining us, educating us, and stimulating our imagination. As historians, we will be finding out about the ways in which toys have changed over time; as scientists, we will be exploring the various materials that toys are made of; as designers, we will be learning about the different stages of the toy-making process and creating our own board games; and as programmers, we will be covering the basics of computer game coding. Toys come in many shapes and sizes, but what is it that makes a great toy?

People of the Past

In People of the Past, we will be learning about a variety of significant people who left a lasting impact on humanity through their hard work, resilience and creativity. As historians, we will investigate the lives of several influential figures to find out about the personal qualities that enabled them to shape the world as we know it. As musicians and artists, we will be producing pieces inspired by the lives and works of famous composers and painters, thereby exploring the elements that made their creations so ground-breaking. Throughout the unit, learners should be encouraged to reflect: How are our lives different thanks to the work of these significant people?

Look and Listen

Have you ever wondered how you can hear and how you can see? You can hear me talking and you can see me smiling at you. You can hear a plane flying overhead and you can see it crossing the sky. What makes hearing and seeing these possible? We will need to be scientists to find out how sound and light travels.

In order to be ready for learning in Year 2 please ensure your child has:

  1. Reading record
  2. Water bottle
  3. PE Kit
  4. (Children must have their PE kits at school every day.  Please ensure that every item of PE kit and school uniform is clearly labelled with your child's name.)
  5. Homework

Year 2 Curricular Targets

Please find attached the targets year 2 are working towards this year.  The work towards achieving these targets will be covered in school but you can also help your child by checking their homework and looking for evidence of their targets in what they do.  Also please ensure they read to an adult every night.
