The Year Two Curriculum

Term One and Two

Our first topic in Year Two is Explorers!

We travel to Antarctica to learn all about the amazing explorer Shackleton and his incredible expedition to the South Pole.
We learn about how  28 men survived when their ship The Endurance became stuck in the pack ice.

The roleplay area this term turns into Shackleton's boat 'The Endurance' complete with a real ship's steering wheel.

Term Three

This term's topic is The Great Fire of London! 

We hope to start our topic with a visit from Samuel Pepys who explains how the fire began in 1666.



We learn about important changes that came about after this event. 

Our roleplay area this term turns into the bakery on Pudding Lane.

Term Four

The topic this term is all about Authors with a focus on Oliver Jeffers.

The children enjoy reading, writing and sharing their own stories.

Term Five and Six

During the final two terms our topic is 'Where are the Wild Things?'  The children enjoy exploring the local environment and the creatures that live in it.
