Welcome to Year 2


A big welcome from all the staff in Year 2! We've had a great first week, filled with enthusiasm from the children. We know it's going to be an exciting year. 


Autumn 1


We sail straight into our Seaside Rescue topic and are very excited about our visit from the RNLI. The children will prepare their own interview style questions to ask the volunteers. 



In maths we look at place value and ordering numbers and at the different ways we can add and subtract, such as jumping on the number line, using a number square and column addition. 


Here are a couple of games to help develop your understanding of place value... place the penguins and lifeguards!









In science this term, building on our learning in year one, we are looking at our different body parts and their functions as well as identifying and grouping things that are alive, dead or have never been alive.


We shall continue to use ‘Talk 4 Writing’ to improve our writing, reading and oral story telling skills. Ask your child if they can tell you the story of The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch…
