Welcome to Year 2

Read on and find out all about us! We have settled well into Year 2 and are eager and ready to learn across the curriculum. We will be developing and building on our skills in reading, writing and mathematics, problem-solving and making good progress, linking our new learning to what we already have learned.

Our first topic will answer the question ‘Is Dartford a good base for exploring Kent?’ We will be looking in detail at our local environment in and around Dartford, understanding where Dartford is in Kent, England, Europe and the world. We will be comparing Dartford to other places, looking at the geographical similarities and differences, both physical and human.

Across the Spring Term, our second key question is ‘What happened during the Great Fire of London?’ We will discover how the fire started and spread and how the fire changed London, making comparisons of before and after. We will also learn about Samuel Pepys and understand why his diary was important.

During the Summer Term, we will be answering the question ‘How did we learn to fly?’ In History, we will identify important events and significant figures surrounding the history of flight. We will carry out a local history study finding out about Alcock and Brown who's aircraft was created in Crayford!

Our curriculum is very exciting and we link our topic work to our learning in other areas of the curriculum. Remember to visit our page to see our learning and fabulous work!
