Year 2 2021 - 2022

Mrs Bolley


Welcome to Year 2


Mrs Bolley, Mr Howarth and Mrs Barber


Class Dojo is a great way for me to keep in touch with you all. It's always great to see what you've been up to!

The Autumn term's context for learning within our vision is ‘Wildlife Connections: Conservation in Action’. Our big question this term is: Should Wild Animals Be Kept in Captivity?

This will be explored through the Story Box approach, which children first encountered in Early Years, which is drama-rich and engages leaners through provocations, requiring deep thinking, with a focus on raising the profile of oracy. 

 Our World Knowledge, Science and English will all follow the books; The Bog Baby and The Rainbow Bear.
