Welcome to Year 2
Our teacher in Year 2 is Miss Stokes. Our Teaching Assistant is the lovely Mrs Broadbent. We do lots of fun, exciting things in Year 2 which incorporate all aspects of the curriculum. Please look on our blog to see what we have been doing.
We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.

Year 2 Curriculum Overview
Our Topic this half term is 'South Africa'. Throughout this topic we will be exploring how South Africa is different and similar to where we live. We will be looking at lots of exciting aspects of life in South Africa, including animals, landscapes, clothing and daily life. The highlight of our Topic will be our trip to Chester Zoo, where we will get the opportunity to see some of the animals and learn all about them.
