There are two classes in Year 2 at Ashbrook School, Lions class and Tigers class. Our classes are situated next to each other, with a shared area. In Lions class, the teachers are Mrs Lauren Almond and Mrs Harrison-Payne. In Tigers class, the teacher is Miss Weatherley. We also have teaching assistant, Mrs Dharmadhikary. Year 2 is an exciting year; the children work very hard and become more independent as they prepare themselves for their next step – on to junior school!
We explore many topics throughout the year and each topic focuses on the key curriculum areas, ensuring the children are accessing all the areas of the new National Curriculum across the year. Each half term we work on a new topic.
Autumn 1 – Castles and Fairytales
Autumn 2 - Fire, Fire!
Spring 1 – One Giant Leap
Spring 2 - Explosive Earth
Summer 1 - Truly Scrumptious
Summer 2- Go Wild!
Alongside these exciting topics, we perform a Christmas play and an end of year production. We have days where we celebrate special occasions, such as Diwali and Chinese New Year. We also plan exciting enrichment activities such as Science Week, D.T Day, Athletics festivals and World Book Day.
In addition, we always look to plan in a school trip and have special visitors that will link in to our topics and help to embed the skills and knowledge we have as well as bringing the learning to life.
