Welcome to Year 2!

 

 

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!

Welcome to Year 2 - here is some information about our learning in Year 2.

 

 
The Year 2 team includes Mrs Tomlinson (Class Teacher) and Miss Rasdale (Teaching Assistant).

Throughout Year 2 the children work on cross curricular topics which are changed each half term.

Our topics for this year are:
London's Burning.
We will learn about the Great Fire of London; what caused it and why it lasted for so long. We'll be asking

and answering questions about this famous event. 

Katie Morag-An Island Home.
Through the Katie Morag stories by Mairi Hedderwick, we'll be investigating what life is like in an environment different

to our own. 

Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole

We will be learning about the changes these two important women made to health and hygiene. We will be asking and

answering questions about how they changed the role of nurses in society.

All about The Rainforests.
This topic will be all about using maps and atlases. We will learn  how to locate different rainforests in the world.

We will discover all about the animals and plants that can be found in the rainforests, and most importantly we'll think

about why rainforests are important and how we can help to protect them. 

Castles and Knights.
During this topic, we'll learn about the different parts of a castle and why they were built. We will enjoy investigating

how knights lived and their role in society. The topic will link well to our school trip to Bolsover Castle which is on

Thursday June 20th.

Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside!
We will be comparing seaside holidays in the past with holidays today. Our work will focus on travel, clothing and

leisure activities. We will have a focus that covers both history and geography, as we look at different seaside resorts

in the UK. 

 
PE

PE will take place on Monday and Thursday.The children will need to bring indoor and outdoor kit, which includes a

white t-shirt, shorts, pumps for indoors and trainers for outdoor activities. Year 2 swimming lessons start on Monday

11th February 2019.
