Children in Year Two follow the National Curriculum 2014 for primary schools.  The subjects taught are: English, Maths and Science, (core subjects), Art and Design, Computing, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music, Physical Education.

At Park Hill Infant School the National Curriculum is taught through half termly topics which have been decided through consultation with the children.  A variety of fantasy, fact, fiction and fun is learnt through our topic based curriculum and the learning is planned for using the children's interests and questions.


The topics for this year are:

KIRFs are quick recall facts that are important for your child's maths knowledge and application. Please practise them at home to further enhance your child's maths learning.

We are also required to teach religious education to all pupils and follow the Croydon Scheme of Work.


Teachers make regular individual assessments for all children throughout the year. Individual progress is tracked rigorously through our in house systems to ensure that all children reach their potential and make good progress.  It also allows us to initiate target based intervention if children need some additional support or if they need to be challenged in a particular area of the curriculum.


In June, children in Year Two complete the nationals SATs tests in Reading, Writing and Maths. These tests help inform the 'teacher assessment' of your child.   The results are reported to you on your child's end of year report.

The SATs presentation to parents and carers for Year 2 (2023) can be downloaded here.
