Welcome to Year 2


Welcome to Year 2 and the Spring Term 

Miss Marsden, Miss Hooker and Miss Axon are the class teachers in Year 2. Mrs Coates (Learning support) will be working across both classes.  

Summer Term – Hope

This summer term in Y2, we are exploring the theme of HOPE, both as a personal feeling that supports us, especially in difficult times, and as our shared hopes for the world we want to live in.

Starting with a modern twist on the familiar tale ‘Little Red’ and the children’s classic ‘Clever Polly and the Stupid Wolf’, we will be looking at how these bold and clever girls take matters into their own hands to reach a happy ending – no waiting for someone to rescue them!

Through our History work and the text ‘Vile Victorians we will be finding out what it was like to be a child in Victorian times – rich and poor – how their rights for an education and a healthy life were limited, and, understand how change may come about through the hope of a better life. In ‘Last Stop on Market Street’ we’ll think about how to see the good all around us and later in the term we are planning to have lots of fun writing and performing poetry inspired by The Book of Hopes.

We are hoping that the sun will shine so that we can take our learning outside as much as possible, learning about plants and animal habitats in Science plus lots of other opportunities from Art to Geography.
