Year 2

Autumn 2- Out of this World!

Year Two loved learning about Neil Armstrong, Tim Peake and Mae Jemison as part of our topic on Space. We visited the International Space Centre and designed, made and evaluated our own rockets.

Brilliant Britain

Our topic for the Spring term is Brilliant Britain. We will be focusing on answering our key
question in History, ‘How do we know what happened during the Great Fire of London (GFoL)?’. This will be achieved by identifying the features of London that caused the GFoL and explaining the consequences of the GFoL. We will also look at the reliability of different sources and the features of Tudor houses. Our knowledge will then be presented to the school in an assembly.


In English this half term, we will be writing an information text comparing the Great Fire of London to the Grenfell Tower fire, a historical narrative using the story ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London’, a recount using the story ‘Coming to England’ and a piece of poetry.


During the Spring term, we will be focusing on multiplication and division, length and height and mass, capacity and temperature. The children can continue to access Numbots using their logins. Take a look at the following document for Key Maths Skills:
