About Year Two

In Year two, we are the oldest class in the infant department. We have lots of fun with our teachers in and out of our classroom.

 

We do many topics over the year including: 

Families and Neighbours – this topic includes a focus on the geography of The British Isles and a study of Runcorn – our home town.

 

Famous People – looking at what it is to be famous. We will be studying the lives of several famous people throughout the year – famous writers, actors, inventors, sports people etc.

 

We will be talking about famous people from the present day and the past and finding out how their lives have influenced and affected others. Some famous people we will be looking at may include, The Queen, Mary Seacole, Neil Armstrong, Samuel Pepys and Gustave Eiffel.
