Welcome to Year 2!

Year 2 is a fun and fantastic Year where children learn lots and grow and develop into confident, clever children smiley

Over the year, we will be studying:

  • Lots of different texts through our English scheme called Read to Write. Our first book is called 'A River ' by Marc Martin. We will then move onto reading some wonderful texts such as 'The Night Gardener' by Eric Fan and the Fan Brothers and 'The Bog Baby' by Jeanne Willis. Our first class reader will be The Owl who is afraid of the Dark. We love reading in Year 2 so will really enjoy these texts.
  • The Weather, Seasons, Our Wonderful World (Geography)
  • Animals inc Humans, Everyday Materials, Seasons, Plants, Living Things and their Habitats (Science)
  • Kindness, Christianity and Judaism (R.E)
  • The artwork of Picasso.
  • Babette Cole and Allan Ahlberg (Authors)
  • Please see the Y2 overview for more information!
