Year 2

Welcome to Year 2


Hi and welcome to Year 2. My name is Mr Gormley and I am the Year 2 Teacher and PE and Maths Lead. I have spent 3 years in KS2 and 3 years in KS1 and I am excited for the year ahead as there is lots of captivating and exciting learning planned! So far the current Year 2’s have been fantastic. They have settled in ever so well and are curious to learn in all areas of the curriculum. The work they are producing so early on in the year is amazing.


Autumn 1



In Autumn 1, our wider curriculum Is based around Coventry and the famous inventions that have took place in our incredible city. It is called ‘Zoom! Soar! Whizz!’. In Maths, we have started on Place Value and will be shortly moving onto Addition and Subtraction. English has involved the traditional tale ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ and we have written a diary entry in role as the shoemaker which was exciting. Science has started with the unit: Animals including Humans, we have already learnt about the life cycle of a frog! In Computing, we are collecting data and using software to transfer this into a pictogram. Overall, an excellent start to Year 2!
