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. 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)
  • Festivals of Light, Christianity and Special Places (R.E)
  • The artwork of Picasso.
  • Babette Cole, Allan Ahlberg and Michael Foreman (Authors)
  • Please see the Y2 overview for more information!
