Welcome to the Year 2 Web Pages


Welcome to our Year 2 Web Pages. As ever, we're excited to be back in school and are looking forward to continuing with a busy Summer term ahead. Here is what we'll be learning about this term:


  • Our main topic is 'Magnificent Monarchs'. This is a history-based topic that will cover the British Monarchy from Alfred the Great to the present day. We will learn lots of historical vocabulary including; hierarchy, government, power, chronology, feudal system, and much more!
  • Our English learning will see us building our grammatical knowledge by exploring coordinating and subordinating conjunctions. We will be learning about the Windrush following the story of Floella Benjamin, and learning how to write about others and from others' points of view. We will also be continuing with our phonics and spelling.
  • In Maths, our focus will be on Fractions, Time, Statistics, Position, and Direction.
  • Our Science learning this term looks at Animal Survival and we will learn about habitats, food chains, and classifying invertebrates.
  • In Art, we will be doing a topic entitled Portraits and Poses and we will be learning how and why people were posed and pictured in certain ways throughout history.
  • Our computing focuses on making digital music.
  • In DT we will be learning about different mechanisms.


We'll continue to use these web pages to provide information and other useful resources for children and grown-ups alike. As we're always looking to add to these, make sure you keep coming back to see what's new. smiley
