About Year 2

Year 2 is a very important final year in Key Stage 1. We continue to build on the children's progress and help prepare them for life in Key Stage 2 and the Juniors

Where in the World

Where in the world are the children of Year 2?  We are using maps and atlases to revise the countries of the United Kingdom and to learn the major oceans and continents of our world.  We will also be using our map skills when we are looking at islands and pirates.

Time Traveller

Year 2 (Classes 5 and 6) are being Time Travellers!  We have been transported back to the 17th Century to investigate the causes and effects of the Great Fire of London in 1666.  We will be looking at Fire Safety then and now (with the help of the Gloucestershire Fire Service) and will also ‘meet’ two famous people from the time – Samuel Pepys and King Charles II – and see how they have shared their experiences of the Fire.   

We will also be finding out about Famous People who live, or have lived, locally with our friends from Year 2 at Oakwood Primary School. 

Hocus Pocus

We are using the Winnie the Witch books by Valerie Thomas for lots of our written work, and Winnie and Wilbur will also be helping us with our Science investigations!   We are using a magic potion to go back in time to look at The Gunpowder Plot and Remembrance Day and our music work may include a talking wolf….!
