Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 Homepage!
Welcome back after the half term break. We have an exciting and busy half term ahead. The children settled in well to year 2 and are showing an increasingly mature and resilient approach to their learning. 

This half term our topic is 'James I and the Gunpowder Plot'. Year 2 will be learning about who James I was and why he is an important part of our history. We will be creating time lines for key events and people during this time. They will also be learning about the Gunpowder Plot and creating their own diary entries to retell what happened.
