Welcome to Year 2’s homepage. Year 2 is going to be a jam-packed year of exciting learning, trips and performances. In Year 2 we build upon our love of learning and grow to become more independent – ready for the Juniors! We will follow our varied interests and develop our many talents. On our class blog, you will find photos of all our trips, fun workshops and learning as well as exciting events.

Autumn 1

This half term, Year 2’s topic is ‘History of Camden Canals’. We will look at photos and paintings of the canals from the past and present and make comparisons between them, talking about their original purpose and how that may have changed over time. In English, we will focus on the traditional tales and in particular ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ and then we will move onto ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.

In Maths, we will explore place value and different ways of representing 2-digit numbers. We will also begin exploring different methods for addition and subtraction.

In Science, our focus will be ‘Plants’. In RE, we will be looking at all the different festivals in Judaisum. In Computing we will concentrate on online safety, as well as some basic coding skills. The children will be able to explain their beliefs as well as learn about the ideas of others.

And in Art, we will be exploring starting the term working on our drawing skills.
