Maple, Year 2

Welcome to Maple, Year 2

Year 2  is an ambitious, adventurous learning community, who are keen to explore new ideas and try out new experiences. 

We demonstrate our values of Achievement, Excellence and Opportunities by:

  • Being independent and motivated thinkers and learners
  • Giving our best, all the time
  • Trying as many new experiences as possible


Our Big Question is: What is home?

The question ' What is home?' focuses on exploration and famous explorers. We will be exploring different regions of the world but especially the Polar regions. 

Using a range of fiction and non-fiction texts, we will build on our reading fluency and stamina, at the same time building our technical vocabulary and understanding of how the world changed as explorers made new discoveries.
