Welcome to Year 2!


In Speedy Cheetahs, there is Mrs Credland, Mrs Ensor and Mrs Wright. In Brilliant Bears, there is Mr Vaughan and Miss Higgins.




We have a fun-filled and exciting year ahead with lots of interesting topics to study and places to visit! Our topics include: Let’s Go Wild, Australia, the Great Fire of London, the First Man on the Moon and Plants and Living Things, in addition to our annual visit to Lea Green.


In Year 2, we work hard to become independent learners who enjoy learning. We also develop problem solving skills and try our best in everything we do!

See our termly Newsletter for further information. If you have any questions or queries, please come in and see us! 

First Man On The Moon

Summer 1:

This half term the children will be learning all about Neil Armstrong and that first moon landing in 1969. They will make their very own moon buggies and create art work from the 1960's.

Don't forget to complete the homework task to earn 2 merit points.

1. Find the name of a famous British astronaut.

2. Write 3 interesting facts about the moon.

3. Draw a picture of your favourite planet.




We are very excited about our visit to Lea Green later in the term.

Meeting and information to follow - please check book bags carefully for letters!

Animal Wow day!


Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Our new topic next term will be ‘Australia’. To get started, here are a few things to be thinking about during the holidays:


  1. Name a famous Australian landmark.

Have fun and we look forward to seeing what you have learnt.
