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.

Term 1&2 (September to December 2021)

Are we keen to be green?


In Year Two we learn about coasts, beaches and the oceans. We immerse ourselves in the “Sally and the limpet” story by Simon James and come up with some exciting innovated versions. We learn about Grace Darling and discover why she is famous. We name, learn and sing about the oceans and continents. We make some beautiful ocean art using music, weather and colour as our stimuli, and consider how our actions in our community might impact on our oceans and our world … what could WE do to help




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.
