Year 2 has three classes with a maximum of 90 children in the year group. The year 2 children have three big topics a year, each covering two terms. The Autumn term topic is called Narnia. The Spring term topic is called Wonderful world. The Summer term topic is called Lion King. For the past couple of years year 2 children have had the opportunity to go to watch the stage play of the Lion King in London in the Summer term.

We believe in creating exciting and stimulating learning experiences for the children and often start topics with a “wow” day and end with a year group event. We also use drama regularly to engage the children in their learning.

Comments from parents at the end of the year have included:


“I will miss not bringing my daughter to this school. All my girls have made great progress with you. The end of an era.”
“Thank you for all the hard work you have done this year.”
“My son has had a fantastic year in year 2 and come on so well. He loved the Lion King trip.”

Our Summer term started spectacularly with our 'Wow Day,' introducing our new topic, Africa. The children got to take part in African drumming and dancing. The children thoroughly enjoyed this and so did the adults. The children also had an opportunity to design and make their own adire cloth patterns. Other highlights of last half term were, the children making their own African masks which they made using paper mache, the children really enjoyed getting messy. In English, the children we read 'Meerkat Mail', where they met Sunny the Meerkat, who wanted to find his perfect home. The children wrote letters, fact files and instructions all based on helping Sunny understand animals he had never seen and food he had never tasted before. The children enjoyed meeting Sunny and seemed to really engage with this excellent text. The children are now looking forward to their new topic Lion King with the extra special 'Wow Day' at the end of the year, seeing the Lion King Production.
