Year Two Curriculum

A Crime in Mr Knight's Garden!
Mr Knight sent a heartfelt plea to year 2 to help him discover who had stolen his award winning vegetables! We investigated various crime scenes and heard from multiple eyewitness accounts. We learnt that the culprit was heard nibbling, had brown fur and left behind a special blue jacket...
Great Fire of George Washington
Year 2 had a wonderful time recreating the Great Fire of London! We learnt that one of the reasons for the deadly spread of the fire was due to how close together the houses were.
Carols Around the Tree
The children in year 2 were thrilled to continue their learning of the Victorians by visiting Beamish! They heard the story of The Tailor of Gloucester in the Victorian town and helped Simpkin by hunting for his shopping in the Beamish windows. They also visited Santa in his grotto, were taught maths in the Victorian school room in the Pit Village and even saw a forest of elves!
History - Victorian Day
This term, children in year 2 have begun their learning on the Victorians. They have been particularly interested in the differences between Victorian school and modern day school. They were astounded when their classroom transformed to a Victorian classroom and they took part in lots of Victorian activities! They made thaumatropes, practised their handwriting on slates, participated in Victorian roleplay, and they created botanical technical drawings!
2AL were extremely lucky to be invited to a trampolining lesson at AAA sports centre! They took part in the rebound festival which was all about jumping. They participated in an obstacle course, a tumbling session and even learnt how to bounce on the Olympic-standard trampolines.
Maths - Halloween Fractions
Year 2 took part in a spooooky fractions lesson! They used their knowledge of halves, thirds and quarters to decorate a cake for Halloween! It was delicious!
PE - Little Dribblers
The children in 2AL had a wonderful time practising their ball skills using balloons! They spent the term learning dodging, kicking and tackling skills courtesy of Jack from SAFC Little Dribblers!
English - A Crime Investigation!
Year 2 got a surprise when Mr Knight set them the task of solving a crime! The children received a paper aeroplane with a desperate message from a giant, investigated crime scenes and even saw the suspect on CCTV...
Science - Minibeast Micro-Habitats
Year 2 had a great time exploring the forest school site! We searched for minibeasts dwelling in micro-habitats. We used a table to record our data!
English - Little Red Puppets
Year 2 loved reading the traditional tale, Little Red Riding Hood. We used the retell glove to retell the story to our friends and we made puppets of the characters to act out the plot.
Science - Living, Dead or Never Alive
Year 2 had a wonderful time learning how to identify if something was living, dead or never alive. They worked in groups to sort the pictures.
