Warden Hill Primary School Cheltenham

Welcome to Year 2

The aim for our children in Year 2 is, not only to challenge and inspire them to develop their love of learning, but to support them in becoming more independent in their school life and gain the necessary skills for a smooth transition into the Juniors. During the year, the children will become more confident with speaking and listening to others and develop their knowledge and understanding of how to improve their own learning.

The children will continue to have an active role in school life through our inter-house events, forest school sessions, well-being theme days and science ambassador programmes, promoting responsibility and developing a sense of community in which they belong.

Children experience a wide range of learning opportunities in year 2, they explore the curriculum in a variety of inspiring ways. Highlights of the year include our ‘How can we be superheroes?’ theme, creating comic strips and learning about real life superheroes; ‘The Great Fire of London’, culminating in a re-enactment of the events of 1666; and our investigation of how toys have changed over time.

At Warden Hill, our Year 2 children love learning and their efforts and successes are celebrated in weekly assemblies. They are supported to succeed across all areas of the curriculum, through their positive attitude and growth mindset which will stay with them for life. We are so proud of what the children achieve at the end of the year as we see them blossom into mature, confident and independent learners ready to meet the challenges of the Juniors.
