Year 2

Welcome Back!

We are really excited to welcome you back to school and for you to start your Year 2 journey. We have lots of exciting learning and experiences for you to enjoy and explore throughout the year. If you are interested in a particular subject that we are covering and you create something at home, we would love to see this and display it in our classrooms.

Adventures Around the World!

Adventures around the world is our topic for Autumn 1. We will be learning lots about the world and famous adventurists including Ed Stafford and Christopher Columbus. By the end of this term we will be creating a fact file book on their adventures. In science we are learning about animals, including humans. They will look at their bodies and understand how it works- why we need to eat healthily and what effect exercise has on us.
