Y2 (2021-2022)

Year 2
In Year 2, we are passionate about providing children with opportunities that promote curiosity, grow  compassion and develop critical thinking skills. We are developing a REAL curriculum, which stands for Real Authentic Engaging Learning. Each topic begins with a “Launch” to hook the children in to the exciting learning which will be taking place that term.

My favourite children's book is The magic faraway tree by Enid Blyton. I read it as a child and loved it and then fell in love with it again as an adult when I read it to my own children.

Miss Enever

2E Teacher

I have so many loved books that it is very hard to choose a favourite! I love Six Dinner Sid by Inga Moore so much that I named my own cat Sid. My favourite part is when Sid goes to the vets, not once, but 6 times! My favourite series of all time is His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman. I first read about Iorek Byrnison when I was 10 years old and I have lost count of how many times I have revisited the lands of Cittàgazze or wished I owned my own alethiometer!

2C Teacher

My favourite book is 'Gone' by Michael Grant. It was the first book I had ever bought with my own money and I literally loved it! It showed me that reading was fun and it took me into a whole world of my own.

Topics Throughout Year 2
Autumn - Movers and Shakers
 
In the Movers and Shakers project, your child will learn five statements from Dawson's model that will help them identify people who are historically significant and use the words year, decade and century to describe dates and times. They will study the life and impact of a significant person in the locality and of 10 significant individuals from around the world. They will complete in-depth studies of significant explorers Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong, and significant activists Emmeline Pankhurst and Rosa Parks and think carefully about the impact of their actions. The children will also carry out an independent study of a significant person from the past and learn about people who are significant today. They will also learn how significant people are commemorated and design a memorial for a person they have studied.
