Year 2

Welcome to Year Two

Year Two are the oldest children in Key Stage One.

Year Two are very proud to be the oldest children in Key Stage One. It makes them feel very grown up (especially as they take the lead roles in our KS1 Christmas production - which is very exciting!).

We work very hard in Year Two getting ready for our National End of Key Stage Assessments which are very important. We also do lots of preparation ready for our big move to Key Stage Two in Year Three. 

Even though we work really hard, our projects are really exciting. We also go on quite a few trips, which relate to these projects, and we look forward to them very much.

Our Imaginative Learning Projects:

LAND AHOY!

 

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world – just like Captain Cook. Make a boat, sink a ship, fly a pirate flag! How do rescues happen at sea? Find out about brave Miss Darling…

 

MUCK, MESS AND MIXTURES

Let’s get messy? Dive in and get your hands and feet all sticky and covered in paint. Play with liquids, squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest foods. Write recipes, instructions, riddles, and poems – there are loads of scrummy words to describe messy mixtures!

TOWERS, TUNNELS AND TURRETS

See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls! Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim! Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower… Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one… whose is the tallest? Can we measure it?

THE SCENTED GARDEN

Tiptoe through the tulips as your senses discover enchanting fragrances. Round the mulberry bush we go, planting bulbs and seeds, then watching them grow beneath sunshine and showers. Be careful, there are some wild and dangerous plants out there that do astonishing things…

WRIGGLE AND CRAWL

Grab your coat – we’re going on a minibeast hunt! Sweep your nets in puddles and ponds and lift up logs to see who is home. Set up your own minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask your own research questions…

BEACHCOMBERS

 

You’re about to become an expert beachcomber! Look for interesting and unusual objects. Take a peek into rock pools to learn about the weird and wonderful animals and plants in their micro habitats. Invent your own amazing rock pool resident – what features will it need to survive?
