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 changing this academic year and more information will follow. 

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 settled well into their new year group. Our first topic was Starry Night. During this topic, we learnt about owls. Dave from Raptor Xotics visited with his birds of prey. The children thoroughly enjoyed this, particularly when the owls flew over their heads. This visit was very educational and lead to some excellent writing from the children. Also this half term, the children learnt about Harvest and had the opportunity to write a set of instructions on how to make an apple crumble. They were then allowed to measure the ingredients and make the crumble themselves before later selling to parents. In Art, children have been learning about Arcimboldo and Van Gogh. The children used fruit and vegetables to create art and then during messy day recreated the famous Starry Night painting by Van Gogh.
