Year 2 has three classes with a maximum of 90 children in the year group. The year 2 children have three big topics a year, each covering two terms. The Autumn term topic is called Narnia. The Spring term topic is called Wonderful world. The Summer term topic is called Lion King. For the past couple of years year 2 children have had the opportunity to go to watch the stage play of the Lion King in London in the Summer term.

We believe in creating exciting and stimulating learning experiences for the children and often start topics with a “wow” day and end with a year group event. We also use drama regularly to engage the children in their learning.

Comments from parents at the end of the year have included:

“I will miss not bringing my daughter to this school. All my girls have made great progress with you. The end of an era.”
“Thank you for all the hard work you have done this year.”
“My son has had a fantastic year in year 2 and come on so well. He loved the Lion King trip.”

Year 2 have been having fun with World book day where we all dressed up as our favourite book characters. It was great when Mrs Smith did a science experiment splitting colours in skittles which was linked to our Hansel and Gretel topic. We enjoyed colouring in squares of paper with lots of different sweets and cakes and drew maps showing the route that Hansel and Gretel took through the woods.

At the end of the term we finished with an exhibition showing all our work but especially our fabulous models of famous landmarks.These included the Taj Mahal, Pyramids, Tower bridge and Wembly arena to mention but a few.
