Welcome to Year 2
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 teacher is Mrs Almond. In Tigers class, the teacher is Miss Weatherley. We have two teaching assistants in Year 2, Mrs Dharmadhikary and Miss Woolridge. 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.
Year 2 Space Day
"We had a fanstastic Space Day - all the children looked great in their costumes. Lions and Tigers enjoyed creating their own mission badges, making alien slime and sculpting aliens out of clay! We were very impressed with the space snacks the children brought in to eat at break time too. Well done Year 2!"
