Year 2 2023 - 2024

Welcome to the Year Two Class Page 

Spring Term



Class Teacher: Miss Croft

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Braddock


As the daffodils start to bloom and the ducks begin to hatch, the children in Year Two will be continuing their amazing learning. This term, we have started our English learning by reading the book 'Katie Morag Delivers the Mail' by Mairi Hedderwick. Mairi Hedderwick is our Author of the Term for spring. Her books are on display in our classroom and the children have loved reading about the adventures of Katie Morag so far! We will be exploring Katie Morag Delivers the Mail in more depth this term and will produce a letter and creating story maps to re-tell the story. We will then be creating and writing our own stories.


The children will be learning about Florence Nightingale and the work she did within our History topic this term. Florence Nightingale was a fantastic lady who changed hospitals forever. We will also be delving into Mary Seacole and the work she did. We will be learning about how both women were nurses and how they helped people. The children will be producing some fantastic diary writing and letter writing.


Within Science, the topic is 'Animals Including Humans'. The Year Two children will be exploring the animal and human life cycle as well as finding out ways to keep our bodies healthy. This will link to our DT topic where we will be designing and making fruit smoothies.
