Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 Page!


We have a brilliant time in Year 2, have a look below and find out some of what we do:


Autumn Term
In our topic 'Making a Difference', we look at the life of Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale and how they made a difference to other people's lives.  In the second half term we learn about the Great Fire of London and the Gunpowder Plot through our topic 'London's Burning'.  We also perform in the Lower School Christmas Play.


Spring Term
Our first topic is 'Super Heroes'  where we love learning about, and pretending to be, our favourite Super Hero!  In the second half of this term our topic is 'Around the World in 80 Days'. Barnaby bear will be on his travels. He may visit places like the Amazon jungle, St Lucia and Bangladesh. We will be finding out about these places and sharing with each other the places our families are from and the countries we have visited.


Summer Term
Our topic is 'Traditional Stories with a Twist'. We develop our writing skills by writing our own version of a Traditional tale with a twist e.g. The Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig. In DT we will make puppets and perform our stories. During this half term, we will also be completing the end of Key Stage One assessments. 

Our final topic of Year Two is 'Mini beasts' where we explore living things and their habitats.  If the weather is good, we can pay a visit to our local allotment to find some of these mini beasts!
