Year 2 Topic Bundles or Classic Topics: what's included, and which is best for you

Year 2 Topic Bundles: best for learning progression and National Curriculum coverage

Year 2 (and Year 1) Topic Bundles include four thematically-linked schemes of work across a range of subjects. Each scheme of work includes 5-7 complete lesson planning packs, with everything you need to teach that subject over approximately half a term.

Each scheme of work is designed to teach to specific National Curriculum Key Stage 1 objectives and provides comprehensive coverage to assess pupil progress against those objectives at the end of the teaching sequence.

Year 2 Classic Topics: best for a varied, fun creative curriculum experience

Year 2 (and Year 1) Classic Topics include 16-18 lesson plan packs. They contain one complete scheme of work comprising 5-7 lessons which will cover some specific National Curriculum Key Stage 1 objectives in detail. The remaining lessons cover a broad range of subjects and include many enjoyable, creative learning activities for a varied cross-curricular learning experience!

Which type of PlanBee Year Two Cross-Curricular Topic is best for you? Whichever you choose, we're confident you'll have loads of planning and resources to teach over half a term or more, and which fits in well with your own thematically-linked lesson planning.

Don't forget to grab the free additional resources (above), too – there's detailed overviews/medium term plans plus editable assessment grids to help you track your pupils' learning.
