Year 2 2023 - 2024

Welcome to the Year Two Class Page 

Summer Term


Class Teacher: Miss Croft

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Braddock


Well, we seem to have blinked and Spring term has been and gone; leaving us behind with some amazing learning! This is our final term together and we still have lots of exciting learning lined up; as well as fun times too!


We have very exciting topics within English this term! Our Author of the Term has now changed to Mini Grey and she is the author of the story Traction Man; this is the book we will be reading together within our English. We will be writing our own stories, creating fact files and many more. Some exciting learning coming up for Year Two!


We have two exciting Science topics this term; Plants and Living Things and their Habitats. Within our Plants topic, we will be learning the important things plants need to survive as well as growing our own plants and observing/recording over time how a seed/bulb grows into a plant. How exciting! Within our topic of Living Things and their Habitats, we will be learning about different places animals and plants live and how they obtain their food from different sources.


'Water' is a focus within lots of our learning in both Art and Geography. We are going to be studying the art of David Hockey who is famous for his paintings of water. Within Geography, we are learning about continents and oceans.


Let's hope for some sunshine this term as we embark on all of this amazing, exciting learning coming up.


Dates this term:


Our class trip will be on Wednesday 10th July 2024 and we will be going to Blue Planet Aquarium!
