Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


Half Termly Topics:

Our topic for Autumn term 1 was 'Magical Britain'. We learnt all about the countries of the United Kingdom and looked at authors who have written magical based stories that are set there. We also looked at the landscapes of the countries and the many things we can see and do there.

Year 2's topic for Autumn term 2 was 'ROAR!'. We learnt about predators and their prey, food chains and locating different predators around the world. We learnt about Dinosaurs as prehistoric predators and then linked our English to the story 'The Christmasaurus' by Tom Fletcher. In Maths we focused on our addition and subtraction skills.

Our topic in Year 2 for Spring 1 has been 'Fire, Fire, Fire!'. We have learnt all about The Great Fire of London and compared fire services now to then. Next half term our topic is 'Health Heroes' and we will be learning about Florence Nightingale and how hospitals have changed over the last 200 years.


Our PE days are Monday and Friday, so children will need to come to school on these days in their PE kits.

Homework and Spellings:

Homework and spellings will go out on Seesaw on Fridays, to be uploaded by the following Friday. We will do spelling tests with the children in school on Friday mornings.
