Welcome to our Year 2
Year 2 is an important year as the children adjust to more formal lessons. The work rate increases but we still ensure that the children have fun along the way.
The year begins with the children learning about traditional tales such as the Gingerbread Man, before we study the Ancient Greeks. The children enjoy writing Greek hero stories, creating monsters and learning about the history and geography of Greece.
In the spring, we move on to finding out about the Titantic and Florence Nightingale.
In the summer, we enjoy exploring the topic 'Hot and Cold' and learning about Australia and the Great Barrier Reef. The children are always amazed to learn that the Great Barrier Reef is the only living thing visible from space. No surprise that it is one of the seven wonders of the world!
As the year draws on, the children develop greater levels of independence within their work as they prepare for their move to Key Stage 2.
