Year 2 2019 / 20
Welcome the Year 2 page!
Year 2 is an exciting year for the children as they come to end of their Key Stage 1 journey!
This year the children will have all sorts of amazing learning opportunities through a creative and engaging curriculum. Each topic starts with a memorable experience to engage the children in their learning, then they develop their knowledge and understanding and finish by having the opportunity to express what they have learnt.
We will start the year learning about Castles in our topic ‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets’ where we will be introduced to many of our marvellous monarchs and their kingdoms. Then, to (draw)bridge the gap between Art and History, we will move onto Muck, Mess and Mixtures (just to mix it up a bit) In this topic we will be investigating all sorts of weird and wonderful mixtures through Art, Recipes, Science experiments.
In the Spring term we will be wriggling our way through the scented garden and learning all about creepy critters and fragrant flowers – their scientific knowledge will surely blossom.
The tide will change as Summer approaches, Year 2 will treasure their time learning about our beaches and all that washes up!
We are going to have a lot of fun this year! We will be working incredibly hard getting ready for the end of KS1 but will not just be looking at Maths, English & Science! The children will be learning much more about themselves and becoming more and more independent as well as growing on confidence and resilience.
Wellbeing and Mental Health are vitally important and we will be taking time each week to be mindful of how we are feeling and talk about things that are bothering us.
We are going to have an amazing year! Stay tuned for more updates of what we’ve been up to!
