Spring 2 Curriculum Overview 

Topic Overview & Key Text

This term we continue to adopt a text-based approach to our literacy and topic lessons. This half term, our book will be ‘The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark’ by Jill Tomlinson.


In many ways, Plop is the same as every other barn owl. Except for one thing – he is afraid of the dark. The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark follows Plop the baby barn owl as he finds the courage to face his fears.

All of the children in Year 2 will attend daily phonics lessons using the Read Write Inc. phonics programme. When the children have completed the Read Write Inc. program they will move onto daily reading lessons. Your child will be issued with a new reading book every Tuesday and Friday. Children are expected to read their book at home every day.
 Please ensure that your child has their reading book and reading record in their book bag every day.
