Crockerne Church of England Primary School

To be the best me that I can be

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


The children are now entering the next stage of their learning.  They widen their learning experiences, developing their stamina to concentrate for longer.  They have a lot of fun while they are doing it.

Year 2 Project Term 5


Stone Age to Iron Age

This term we will be learning about how life changed from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.

We will be thinking about the following questions:

  · What was prehistoric Britain like?

  · How did Stone Age hunter-gatherers live?

  · Who were the first farmers?

  · What is Stonehenge?

  · What was life like in the Bronze Age?

  · How did Iron Age people live?

Year Two

Year Two is the only single year group at Crockerne so the children learn in smaller classes and have lots of opportunities to work as whole year group.
