Welcome to Year Two. Miss Alice Callaghan is the class teacher and Mrs Diane Lane works with us to support our learning. We are a really happy bunch, who love learning and finding out lots about the world around us. We work hard to become more independent in our learning in preparation for Key Stage Two.
During the Autumn term, our topic is ‘Grand Discoveries’. We will be finding out about two special astronauts (Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake), we will also be looking at locations of countries, continents and oceans. In the Spring term, we will be 'Time Travelers’ and exploring the gunpowder plot. In the summer, we will be exploring ‘Explorers’.
