Our topic for the next term is:  Explorers and Innovators! 

We will be learning about different people throughout history and how they have changed our world for the better. We will be stepping into some of their shoes and using the skills, techniques and knowledge that they have gained to learn about the impacts that they have had on our world.

  • In year two, we focus on making sure that children are really confident with their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. Please find some links below that we use in class to help children remember the key number facts in these times tables:
