Year 2


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 a very busy summer term ahead. Here is what we'll be learning about this term:


  • Our main topic is 'Magnificent Monarchs'. We'll be using lots of history skills to find out about the many monarchs we've had in the United Kingdom. We will develop our understanding of timelines and when some key monarchs reigned. We will learn lots of fascinating facts about Henry VIII and Queen Victoria in particular. Our art will also support our understanding as we'll be studying and interpreting some famous royal portraits.
  • Our English learning will continue to see us building our vocabulary and working on improving writing through 'Rainbow Grammar'. In particular, we'll be working on information leaflets, studying and then creating our own kennings poems, and we'll also be looking at comic strips and writing some of our own. 
  • In maths, we will be focussing on measurement and the standard metric units used. Our learning will cover length and height, time, mass, capacity, and temperature. We will also be finding out about position and direction. All along, we will be continuing to learn our times tables, along with developing our problem-solving skills.  
  • Our science learning this term will focus on the fascinating world of plants and how they are adapted to survive in many different habitats. We'll find out about the physiology of plants, seeds, and bulbs, and learn about the process of germination.


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
