Welcome to Year 2


Year 2

We are so excited to welcome you all to Year 2 and we can't wait to get to know each and every one of you. The Year 2 team consists of Miss Hillier, Mrs Ahmed, Mrs Cundale, Mrs Madhu and Mrs Haslehurst. We want all the children to try their best and work together to make the learning fun for everyone!


Our curriculum topic for the Summer term is "Africa” This topic will encourage the children to explore the climates and geographical features of Africa, as well as comparing an African village with Snaresbrook. Children will learn about African animals on a trip to London Zoo. We will explore a range of fiction texts that are themed around Africa and will write for a range of purposes around these texts. Through Africa we will cover a large amount of our Science curriculum, including; animals and their habitats, food chains and comparing and classifying animals. To finish off the term the children will also be going on a trip to the Epping Forest Field Centre to consolidate things they have learnt during our Science lessons.

Please find our curriculum newsletter attached.
