Welcome to our Year 2 Classes

Year Group Teaching Assistants: Miss K Rance, Mrs I Marques and Mrs R Maston

In Year 2 we encourage our children to develop their independence for their final year of KS1 so they are ready for KS2. Our children build on their previous year’s learning and work hard to make links with this to deepen their understanding and are encouraged to make comparisons within their learning. In year 2, we cover exciting topics such as Space, The Gunpowder plot and The Great plague to name a few. Children become designers, engineers and artists throughout the year and develop their love for learning across all subjects.

The Happy Pants Ranch is our charity for this year. Find more out about our courageous advocacy here.


An example of our class timetable can be found below but please note that our timetables are flexible and subject to change, and we do not always teach the same lessons on the same days, but this gives you an insight into curriculum coverage etc.

Please note that our PE day is Thursday, children should come to school in their correct PE kit (no jewellery please). 

Year 2 Timetable

Terms/Topic Information

Our learning this year will be based on the topics below and will change accordingly each term. Parents can view a ‘Curriculum Overview’ at the start of each term informing them about what the children will be learning, as well as a detailed newsletter. This will also be available below to download.

Several times throughout the school year we come away from our regular timetable and have themed days. This is when the whole school focuses on the same concept and uses a central image, text, song etc as the stimulus for all the learning. It allows for and encourages even more creativity and gives us the chance to unite in our learning with the same theme across the whole school.

More Information about the subjects can be found on our curriculum pages.

Home Learning

Your homework tasks for each term are uploaded to Google Classroom. Once you have completed a task, either upload your task to the stream to share with your peers or submit it to your class teacher.

Don’t forget to be reading at home!
