Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Miss Curtis, Mrs Kruiniger, Mrs Molton, Mrs Stokes, Mrs Cassell and Mrs Laird are our Year 2 teachers.

In the aftermath of the Great Fire of London, the children are tasked with the challenge of redesigning the city of London.

The children will develop their historical understanding of the Great Fire of London and learn how this significant event changed the city of London forever. They’ll examine a range of historical sources to develop their understanding of what evidence can teach us about the past. In Geography, they’ll develop their understanding of cities and towns through maps and seeing how the human features of a city change over time. They’ll also use grid references to help them design and navigate their own map designs. Through DT they will create a giant 3D map of London as it could have looked after the Great Fire and will explore how to create free-standing models that are aesthetically designed in line with their design brief. They will use their computing skills to program a robotic fire engine to navigate the streets of their map. The children will develop their scientific understanding of materials and their properties and through investigating a material’s absorbency they will learn how to waterproof materials. In music, the children will develop their singing skills by performing a song with others in rounds and in art they will create a mixed media piece of art representing the Great Fire of London.

We are also very excited to confirm the fire brigade will be visiting us at school later in the term.
