Parents & Carers

Year Two

Welcome to the Year 2 area. In Year 2 children will begin to show greater independence. Peer acceptance becomes more important than before and they begin to value their friendships in more meaningful ways. There is less focus on one’s self and more concern for others.

This is when children start developing their ability to understand the perspectives of others and become more aware of and sensitive to the feelings of others.

They begin to understand about their place in the world and at this stage children become inquisitive, asking lots of questions as they continue to explore their world. In order to ignite this curiosity, children in Year 2 learn a range of exciting and stimulating topics such as: ‘The Great Fire of London’, ‘Into the Woods’, ‘Antarctica’, and ‘Rainforests.’
