Key Information

In Year 2, children’s learning in Key Stage One comes together as pupils develop into independent learners. By the end of the year, pupils are able to read, write and answer mathematical problems with greater fluency.

Year 2’s topics are London, Rainforests and Heroes and Heroines. We explore these topics through History and Geography enquiries; non-fiction written work and art projects. Recent trips have included a boat ride on the River Thames and a trip to London Zoo! In Science, pupils build upon their previous knowledge to carry out simple investigations and to work together to ask and answer questions.

In the Summer term, pupils have the opportunity to go on a mini school journey, where they stay overnight at Rippledown House. This is a fabulous time for everyone involved as the children experience different activities and are able to develop their independence.

History - VE Day

Street party

At the end of the second world war, many people celebrated by having street parties. Imagine that you are planning a party, where will it be? Who will come? I would like you to plan the party from food to music, You can present your party plan however you would like; maybe with a piece of art or a mind map. You might even imagine that you have had the party and write a diary entry telling how the party went. Send them to me and I will post a selection on the website.

Week ending 15th May 2020

Science 

In Science, we will be learning all about seeds and they need to make them grow.

The children will be keeping a seed diary of their own mystery seed as it grows.

Your seed diary and seed will be available to collect all this week from the main playground. Please come on your allocated book swap day to avoid crowds forming.

The children should complete all of the week 1 activities this week and then each week they should fill in their diary by drawing a picture of what their seed looks like and writing about any changes they have observed during the week. 

The video clips will help you to understand what seed needs to grow and will be useful when completing the week 1 activity.
