Welcome to Year 2!

Throughout the year pupils will cover five topics: Comparing Kenya, Fire! Fire!, Riotous Royalty, The Circle of Life and Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside.

Within these, they will take part in a range of lessons to develop their knowledge and understanding including Art, DT, History and Geography. They also look at different areas of Science including: Living Things and their Habitats, Plants, Animals including Humans and Uses of Every Day Materials.

Over the year we go on a number of educational visits linked to our areas of study including:  Cannon Hall Museums Victorian Kitchen, the RSPB Wetlands Centre to hunt for pond and land minibeasts as well as a trip to the seaside and an ice cream. Yummy!
