Welcome to 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 McKenna, Mrs Ahmed, Mrs Williams and Mr Simmonds. This means there are lots of adults available to help you settle in and begin your Year 2 learning journey. 


Our curriculum topic in Autumn 1 is "Healthy Me” This topic will encourage the children to explore how to keep healthy. Our History topic is The great Fire of London. We will be looking at the diary of Samuel Pepys. Explore the London before and after the fire. And the role played by Sir Christopher Wren in developing London.

Our curriculum topic in Autumn 2 is "Treason and Plot” This topic will encourage the children to explore the life of Guy Fawkes and the events of the Gunpowder Plot. During this topic the children will be looking at a range of texts around this theme. These include a range of non-fiction texts about Guy Fawkes. Our Science is "Materials Monster" and is linked closely to the topic theme. 

Please find our curriculum newsletter attached.
