Year Two topics

In Year 2 , we focus on a range of interesting and exciting topics in history, geography and science over the year.


In Autumn, we will be exploring the UK in our topic Rule Britannia. We will move on to learning about Kings and Queens during the second half term.


During Spring, we will be travelling around the world in our What a Wonderful World and Travel and Transport topics.


To end the year, we will be going on a Sensational Safari around Africa, then coming back to London to complete our Hot, Hot, Hot topic by learning about the Great Fire of London. 



Home Learning work for self isolating families


In the event of self-isolation, we have gathered together some very useful resources for your use at home whilst you are not able to attend school. 


READING - we suggest you read at least 3 times a week. If you were to do 10 minutes a day your reading would continue to make good progress. Have a good search through the books you have at home and find one that you think would be challenging. Don't forget reading recipes and instructions for games are good chances for reading practice too. Other examples are comics, magazines, journals, newspapers and online blogs.

Oxford Owl has a wide variety of eBooks available.


WRITING - keep a daily diary, include your thoughts and feelings. Focus on the steps you have taken to keep active, entertain your family, how you have been keeping in touch with your friends and what you are most enjoying about being at home. 


MATHS - engage with the lessons, games and homework activities on the My Maths website. Practice your times tables on TT Rock Stars; you could have a family challenge. Follow the links below. 

Oxford Owl also has a wide variety of Maths activities, including tips for giving help.


SCIENCE - make an information pack about a famous scientist or inventor. Keep a food diary for a week, include drinks and any exercise that you do. 


GEOGRAPHY - make a factfile about a country of the UK.


ORGANISERS - Don't forget to keep recording your reading practice – even any eBooks that children have been reading.  You might also like to learn the school prayer and the Lord's prayer, check out which maths topics you need help with and write a reading summary. 


SPELLINGS – Practice weekly spellings. Weekly spellings will be posted on Class Dojo. You might like to practice words from the Year 1/2 spelling list at the back of the organiser.

Below is the normal weekly timetable. Try to stick to a similar weekly/daily timetable as much as possible to give a structure to lessons. It will also vary the lessons and tasks so that the same subject is not overly repeated.
