As the children move into Year 2, children are expected to begin to take a little more responsibility for their own, independent learning. The learning approach becomes slightly more formal whilst ensuring each lesson is delivered in a motivating, stimulating and engaging way. The children learn through interactive and exciting activities and use many school trips to enhance their learning experiences.


Key skills across curriculum subjects are carefully interwoven into themes or topics giving a holistic approach to work and a meaningful approach for the children. Mental maths, phonics and handwriting are addressed daily and specialist teaching continues in Music, French and P.E.


Throughout the year, the children will study many different topics. This year the children will learn about Oceans and Seas, The Great Fire of London, Superheroes and real life Heroes, Pirates and Africa.


Our main target in Year 2 is that all of the children are happy, inquisitive learners who love to work hard and are at home in the classroom. Our approach combines a secure, happy and supportive learning environment in which children are able not only to achieve high academic standards, but also to grow as well rounded, independent learners.


“Year 2 is the best because we learned about the Titanic!”


“You have lots of fun in year 2 because the lessons are fun.”


 "Every lesson is good and you learn loads of new things."


"It’s fun being in Year 2 and I love learning about the Antarctic."
