In Year 2, we strive for more independent learning so every child can be the best they can be.
Year 2 is another important yet exciting year in your child’s learning. Throughout the year, they will continue to develop their writing skills through a range of high quality engaging texts. Your child will continue to write at length with a focus on purpose and audience. By the end of the year, they should have learned their number bonds 1-10 and know their 2,5 and 10 times tables.

This half-term we are learning about the amazing life of Mary Seacole. To enhance the children’s experience, weekly learning was shown through an interesting pop-up booklet. In design & technology, we created first aid boxes to link with our history topic all about Mary Seacole. We investigated a range of materials and learnt different folds and joins and identified ones that would be secure enough for our first aid boxes.
To launch our science topic this half-term on micro-habitats we visited the Wetlands Centre to learn about the pond micro-habitat. Our pond dipping activity was successful - we found many animals and we identified how they breathe, what they might eat and how they protect themselves in this habitat.
