Lyminster Primary School

Growing, Caring & Learning Together


Year 2 

Welcome to BROWNE Class 

As the children at Lyminster move into Year Two, our aim is for them to become more independent and responsible for their own learning, whilst still feeling secure enough to take risks and challenge themselves. Whilst the style of teaching and learning does become more formal in Year Two, the emphasis is still very much on creativity and exploration, and this is reflected in the broad range of topics and activities that the children will experience. Towards the end of the year, the children will be taking part in end of Key Stage SATs, and whilst they will be well prepared, these are very informal, and the intention is that the children hardly even know they are happening! The children will leave Year Two as confident, engaged young learners looking forward to the challenges of Key Stage Two!


Year 2 carrying out their own research to see if Mr McGinley’s prediction was correct. They even made a block graph to show that, in fact, their favourite flavour of chocolate was white, not milk!  They then used their graph skills to show what they had found out about the weather in India!
