Welcome to Year 2

Year 2 Team:

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.”



This term our children have been working hard creating their own magic box poems. They have all have been coming up with lots of wonderful ideas. We have put all the poems up around the Year 2 area for now and we will be making our own poem book that is going to make a permanent addition to the library.

The children have also been recreating their own version of tinga tinga art. Our children have been building this up over a few weeks, beginning with the background, moving onto the animals and will be putting it all together in the next week. We can’t wait to see what they will look like at the end (watch this space).
