Year 2 – Curriculum (Teacher Mr. Ferguson)

Hello children and welcome to Year 2.

As I’m sure you’ll remember, my name is Mr Ferguson and I can’t wait to see you all again in September and hear about all the fantastic experiences you’ve had over the summer.

Year 2 is a big year for us as we get to the top of Key Stage 1 and set an excellent example for the younger children to follow.

We’ve got lots of interesting themes to explore and inspiring stories to read as we travel across the five continents, from ‘The place that we live’ through to ‘Around the World’.  We’ll discover and examine a variety of fascinating wildlife during ‘Strange Creatures’ and ‘UK animals’, while our experiences of ‘Winter’ will broaden our knowledge of weather systems and seasonal change.

In Year 2 we are lucky enough to be learning French, which Madame Hay will teach each Friday and of course let’s not forget Coach Dave, who motivates us during our P.E. sessions and Mrs Court who continues to inspire us in music.

As always there’s a great deal to look forward to! See you all soon!
