ALL ABOUT YEAR 2
Welcome to the Year 2 page!
In Year 2 we will be working very hard to develop our existing skills as well as learning lots of new and exciting things too! Year 2 is an important year, in terms of assessment, however we make sure that lessons are engaging and foster a love for learning! We follow a creative curriculum based on the Key Skills that children are required to know for their year group. We ensure that we have cross-curricular links with other subjects to delve deeper into each topic. Please see the Curriculum Newsletter for more details on the learning taking place each term.

This is the curriculum jigsaw for Year 2:
Our topic this half term is ‘Dungeons and Dragons’.
So far we have loved learning about the parts of a castle and learning why they are important. We learnt that the portcullis was important to keep away intruders! Also we have been exploring the artist Paul Klee and we created our own pieces based on his artwork ‘Castles in the Sun’. They were great fun and they look fantastic. We are really looking forward to our school trip to Clitheroe Castle on 13th October. Keep checking this page for photos of the day!
