Our Learning

Please use the links below to learn more about the topics we will be learning about this year.

Autumn - Great Fire Of London

Who burnt the buns? This is the question put to us at the beginning of year 2 as we embark on the first history topic that looks closely at a historical event. We begin by exploring the London of 1666 and comparing it to the London we know now. This helps us to understand why the fire started and spread so quickly. Throughout this topic we have the opportunity to look at a variety of sources and artefacts, including the diary of Samuel Pepys and a visit to St Paul’s Cathedral.

Spring - India

We are transported to the beautiful and diverse country of India in this exciting geography topic. We begin by getting a sense of what India is like through its food, dance, wildlife and culture. We learn that parts of India are very different and focus in on the city of New Delhi and the village of Chembakolli. A trip to the small village of Horton Kirby and a local walk around Forest Hill, help us to think about how the city and the countryside are not only different in India, but also in the UK. Through these experiences, we begin to identify the human and physical features of contrasting environments and also start to focus on mapping skills.

Summer - Seasides

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside! Year 2 ends with this perfect summer topic, which combines both historical and geographical learning. Throughout the summer term we compare seaside localities with our own city locality, thinking about the human and physical features of both. We have the opportunity to carry out local fieldwork and go on an exciting trip to the seaside at Herne bay. As well as focusing on the geography of the seaside, we also discover what seaside holidays were like in the past and compare them with the holidays we take now.
