Growing Excellence, Inspiring Success

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Nelson Mandela (South African first black President, anti-apartheid revolutionary and philanthropist)

Welcome to Year 2


This term our learning has an English focus. We will be fully immersing ourselves in the world of Lego by watching the ‘Lego Movie’. The children will develop their non-chronological writing skills, during this topic, and will be writing about their own Lego character. We will continue to introduce the children to new learning, in line with the Year 2 objectives taken from the National Curriculum, alongside allowing lots of opportunities for physical or mental activities, calmness and positive thinking, to promote wellbeing.

In Science, we will be learning about materials and their uses. In Geography, we will be learning about the United Kingdom and its countries. We will focus our attention on the capital city, London, and look closely at its landmarks.

Our Big Ideas this term are Tyranny vs Democracy. We will be asking broad questions such as:

  • Are there really baddies and goodies, villains and heroes?
  • Is democracy always fair?
  • Can people change?

Inspirational People we will be looking at are:

  • Queen Elizabeth II - the longest reigning English monarch in history.
  • Norman Foster - An English architect who designed The Gherkin in London.
  • Renzo Piano - An Italian architect who designed The Shard in London.
