Year 2

Year 2

We welcome you all to Year Two!

In Year Two, we aim to enhance our learning through engaging, fun and interactive lessons. We encourage independence, curiosity and exploration by transferring skills that we use across the curriculum through exciting topics. We also understand the importance of reflection and take time to think about the steps we take along our journey.

Together, we learn to value and respect each other as individuals. We take responsibility for our work and our classroom. We enjoy celebrating each other’s achievements. Through self-belief, we will continue to show resilience when faced with new challenges.

We will consolidate all of the knowledge gained from Year One whilst developing new skills and concepts to help us achieve the most out of being at the end of Key Stage One.

To kick start the year, we have learnt about Oscar-Claude Monet and his wonderful world of art! We have experimented with different techniques including using our fingers to add colour to our own version of Monet’s lily pads.

Each half term we have a different topic such as ‘Our World’, ‘The Great Fire of London’ and we link it to different areas of learning including a range of writing genres, geography, history, science, art and music. This encourages children to delve deeper, seek out questions, to research and to get the very most out of their experiences. We make our time enjoyable and meaningful.

We look forward to a wonderful year by enjoying every step we take!

Thank you for taking the time to read the Year Two blog.
