Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


This term our topic is 'Explorers'.


In English, we will be writing using a range of styles. This term, we are focusing on The Frog and the Stranger. This term, we will be writing adventure and fantasy stories and, in Maths, we will be continuing to consolidate our knowledge of the four operations and solving problems.


We will be exploring materials in Science during the first term. This will include looking at the properties of materials, why certain materials are used for specific products and designing experiments to test them.


In History, we will be learning about great explorers such as Christopher Columbus, what they discovered, how they travelled and why this is significant. In the second half term, we will be focusing on oceans and continents in Geography. 


In Art, we will be thinking about how boats float and what structure should be used to make them successful. The children will be able to draw on their Science knowledge and have the opportunity to design and create their own boat. 


Please remember that we have an open-door policy so if you have any concerns, please speak to us.
