Year 2 are currently completing their 'Plants' topic. They will be investigating exactly what a seed needs in order to grow into a healthy plant. Come back soon to see how our plants have grown in different environments. 

To link in with our global theme for Spring 1, ‘SAVING OUR ENVIRONMENT’, Year 2 got stuck into their environment topic in science. Children had lessons all about:

  • reducing, reusing and recycling
  • how to save water
  • climate change
  • saving energy
  • forest animals
  • endangered animals

We started the year by thinking about GOD and where GOD is found. Children spent some time painting their own ideas...


In Year 2 we will be learning the following

Local history: Significant historical events, people and places in our locality (Victorians)

Events beyond memory: The great fire of London

Lives of significant individuals: Neil Armstrong
