Welcome to Year 2! 

Year 2


Read on and find out all about us! We have all 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 Herne Bay, looking at the geographical similarities and differences, both physical and human.

Our second key question is ‘Why is it important to be a responsible archaeologist?’ We will be like detectives, looking at the evidence. We will investigate the work of Howard Carter and the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, understanding that we can learn so much from the artefacts that were left behind thousands of years ago. We will also be finding out what life was like in Egypt nearly five thousand years ago.

During the Summer Term, we will be answering the question - ‘How can you attract wildlife into a garden?’ This Scientific question will allow us to investigate what living things need to survive, how food chains and webs link different aspects of the environment together. We will be designing, building and analysing habitats to encourage mini-beasts and hence other creatures into our gardens.

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!
