Year 2

Welcome to year 2!

Miss Scotney, Miss Smith Mrs Price and Miss Olley would like to welcome you to Year 2.

Here you will be able to find out about what your child is learning about and the activities they have enjoyed doing.
While we have lots of work to do, we still manage to have lots of fun!

Autumn Term

We start the year with our Towers, Tunnels and Turrets Topic. We learn all about castles, bridges and lots more!

We have started our topic with a fantastic trip to Richmond Castle, where we explored the bailey, the keep, the towers, the great hall and The Richmond 16 exhibition. We were able to look inside the prison using an interactive video, exploring the cells and hallway.

Spring Term

This term our topic will be Land Ahoy! We learn all about life at sea, including life as a pirate and the life of the great explorer, Captain James Cook. We will look at all of the different materials used to make a pirate ship and decide which ones are the most effective.

Our next topic is Scented Garden. We will be planting our own bulbs and seeds to see how they grow when different factors are taken away.
