Year 2

The final year of Infant School, bringing with it the increased responsibilities of being ‘top of the school.’

In Year 2 (Giraffes and Bears), there is a big focus on developing increased independence in preparation for the move to Junior School.  We hope parents will enjoy hearing at the end of each day all about the work we have covered!

In English and Maths lessons, planning is based upon The National Curriculum 2014. We plan and teach a topic based curriculum and send out a newsletter detailing this each half term. The curriculum areas covered by topic work are Science, Geography, History, Art and DT.

Where possible, we teach through an investigative approach.

Our topics are as follows:

Autumn term Time Travellers
Spring term Dig a Little Deeper
Summer term Summer Fun

Highlights in Year 2

  • Visits to Ashfield School (Christmas Show, Meet the teacher)
  • School Trip to The Roald Dahl Gallery, Buckinghamshire Museum
  • End of Year Leavers Show
  • Poppy Collection
