Welcome to our Year 2 page!
Miss Eggleston, Mrs Neal and Miss O’Callaghan teach year 2, supported by Mrs Hurst.
Read below for an overview of our exciting learning journey in 2022/23.
Autumn first half- Happily Ever After
Having explored fairy tales in Year 1, the children are introduced to a whole new world of “twisted” fairy tales, The Big Bad Wolf becomes the Big Bad Pig and it’s Jim not Jack and the Beanstalk. They will become authors of their own twisted tales when they innovate the stories Goldilocks and The Three Little Pigs. We have the opportunity to understand and discover what human and physical features are, in readiness for when we visit our home town of Syston after half term. The children will learn how positive relationships should be valued and nurtured in friendships, families and communities.
Autumn second half- Fire Fire!
It is 1666 and a fire has started in a bakery on Pudding Lane, a fire that will go down in history as The Great Fire of London. Our hall will be transformed into a street scene from the period where the children will be immersed in life first hand and learn about the fire from people who experienced it, including famed diarist Samuel Pepys. The children will make links to their Science learning about materials and their properties last term when considering why the fire spread so quickly and also the lessons learned when Sir Christopher Wren redesigned London.
