Year Two

Welcome to Year 2!


Our Class Page


Welcome to the class page for Year 2! We are proud to be a class of polite, hard-working children who try our best in all aspects of school life. If your child is in Year 2 then please familiarise yourself with this page as it will let you know the various activities the class are currently involved in.


Throughout this year, we will build on the experience, knowledge and skills we gained last year to secure the Key Stage 1 standards. Some of us will be building on these basic skills before beginning our Year 3 learning!


Please have a look around our class page to find out what we are learning about in each subject and see what we're getting up to!

    How is living in Kenya similar and different to living in the UK?

    This unit of study draws on the ‘place knowledge’ strand of the national curriculum for Key Stage 1. Within this strand pupils are required to understand geographical similarities and differences through studying the human and physical geography of a small area of the United Kingdom, and of a small area in a contrasting non-European country. The unit also draws on the ‘human and physical geography’ strand of the national curriculum by teaching pupils the location of hot and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and by building on their vocabulary of geographical terms.
