Year 2

Curriculum

This term, Year 2 will be learning all about the Queen as part of their RESPECT curriculum. We will be looking at the Queen's role as a monarch and her life as a daughter, wife and mother.  We are very excited to discover a wealth of knowledge about the Queen and her many roles and learning all about how many countries are part of the Commonwealth. Children will be planning a coronation party and enjoying baking their own produce for the party. Children will undertake the Queen missions weekly in which they will have the opportunity to display and develop all values of the RESPECT curriculum, particularly teamwork, resilience, communication and self-awareness.
