Year 2 Curriculum Overview


Our Topic


Our first topic in Year 2 is all about famous people in history.  Throughout this topic we will be finding out about people who lived a long time ago, what they did that was special and why we still remember them now.  We will learn about how Florence Nightingale helped the soldiers, Grace Darling and why she was so brave and Louis Braille and how he changed blind people's lives forever.  To further enhance our topic we will all be selecting a different famous person from history and researching them, before presenting our work to the rest of the class as this term's Learning Log.



Our Class Novel

Our Reading focus for this half term will be sharing stories as a class.  We will be listening to stories, predicting what might happen and sharing our opinions backed up by evidence from the text.
