Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 2 Page

This year we will be covering:
Autumn term 1 Towers, Tunnels and Turrets:
Children will learn about the design and structure of castle buildings including how these have changed over time. We also look into the roles people held in castles in medieval times. They will compare this life to how we live now and even build their own tower!


Autumn term 2 Bounce:

Children will learn about what it takes to lead a healthy life including diet, exercise and hygiene. We will carry out experiments to see how our bodies adapt to exercise and how easily germs can pass around people. We have a strong focus on DT in this topic in which children will research, design, and make their own smoothie.


Spring term 1 Land Ahoy:

Children will learn all about the life and voyages of local explorer Captain James Cook. We will be studying the UK and the countries that make the United Kingdom, continents of the world as well as human and physical features of the local area. We will also be putting our navigating skills to the test by learning how to use compass direction.


Spring term 2 Street Detectives:

Children will learn about the local area including shops and housing and how these have changed over time since the 1950s. Children will learn about local landmark: The Transporter bridge and discover why it was built and how it runs. We will also be looking into nature and observing what plants need to grow.


Summer term 1 Wriggle and Crawl:

Children will learn about what animals, including humans, need to survive looking specifically at life cycles of insects such as bees. Children will go on minibeast hunts to see minibeasts in their natural habitats and end the topic by creating their own minibeast hotel to encourage the growth of wildlife in suburban areas.

Summer term 2 Beachcombers:

Children will learn about different habitats (including micro habitats) and how life thrives in these specific environments.  We will look into food chains and learn about how our bodies grow and change. We will also create art work using a range of textures and materials specific to beach habitats.






PE is every Thursday afternoon. Children will take part in several different activities including team games, gymnastics, dance and athletics.


Y2 children will take part in Forest School in the autumn term learning valuable skills and teamwork in a fun, stimulating environment.
