Year 2


Welcome to Year 2


Year 2 provides children with the opportunity to explore, investigate and learn new skills, whilst building on those they have learnt in previous years.  Children enjoy the variety of opportunities our curriculum and school environment offer enabling them to develop independence and resilience.  The particularly enjoy exploring Math's, Science and art activities whilst in the school nature reserve.


As well as exploring a variety of engaging texts in English and exploring a range of mathematical concepts, children have the opportunity to carry out investigations in science and develop historical understanding through looking at the first aeroplane flight, Mary Anning and Ernest Shackleton.  They gain geographical skills through asking questions about Polar Regions, a region of Kenya and more locally Lyme Regis.  They enjoy creative subjects such as music, art and design and technology, where they design and make their own smoothie and moving vehicle.  Throughout the year children are given enrichment opportunities through many exciting events including dressing up days, visitors and trips out of the classroom.


Mrs Mutch, Mrs Hilton, Ms Probert, Miss Johnson, Mrs Westhead and Mrs Woolrich are there to ensure that learning is fun and the children make the best progress they can throughout the year.
