Year 2

At John Rankin, children are at the heart of everything we do.

In order to develop as independent, life-long learners, we passionately believe that children deserve to experience high-quality learning experiences every day.

This year the children continue working on their Phonics which they developed in year 1. They also develop their literacy, grammar, science and maths skills whilst taking on lots of reading. The children benefit from the use of both indoor and outdoor learning with their own covered areas for each classroom. They continue their work on topics they begin to explore the rainforest this year.
