Teaching and Learning in Year 2 

Take a look at our long term plan to see what we will be learning throughout the course of the year in  Year 2:


Medium Term Plans

Each half term we have a new topic linked to our learning

Autumn:  Jambo Kenya and To Infinity and Beyond

Spring: Born to be Wild and Blast from the Past

Summer: Local Landscapes

PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics education) 

Autumn 1

The core theme for the autumn term is relationships. During the first half term we are learning about friends and the qualities of a good friend.



Newsletters 2023 - 24

Year group newsletters are written each half term and contain information about current learning, reminders, how to support your child's learning at home and key dates. The newsletters are sent out via email, are uploaded to our Class Dojo class stories and can be viewed by clicking the links below.

PE days:

Whales – Tuesdays and Fridays 

Dolphins - Mondays and Wednesdays 

We hope to teach many of our PE lessons outside on PE days. Please ensure your child comes in PE kit. For safety reasons, if your child has pierced ears, please try and remove earrings on their PE days or ensure small studs are worn which can be taped over. Please also ensure that long hair it tied back.
