Welcome to our Year 2 page


In Year 2 we continue to build on the key skills the children develop in Year 1.  The Year 2 children enjoy learning through a variety of inspiring themes which encompass their interests when promoting and delivering a rich curriculum.  Our themes give us a hook into exciting writing, books, exploration both indoors and outdoors as well as creative opportunities. In Year 2 we enjoy finding out about people in the past such as Queen Victoria and significant inventors/ explorers.  In Geography we like to find out about different places around the world such as Antarctica and Africa.  The children have more opportunities to represent our school further by being involved with different sports, sporting competitions, the Dance Festival and Music Festival.  

During Year 2 the children become more independent, confident and further develop a self-awareness for their own learning.  By the end of Year 2 the children are ready for the next stage of the journey into Key-Stage 2. Carefully managed transition events and activities help this to be a smooth process for each child.
