We are the Big Cats!

Year 2 is made up of 4 classes – Lions, Panthers, Snow Leopards and Tigers.  These children are the biggest in our school!

Year 2 continue to work within the Key Stage 1 curriculum where they learn in different subject areas but also make links across subjects through topics. They build upon their skills and knowledge from Year 1 extending their understanding of key concepts.

Did you know…

Kenya is named after Mt Kenya? This is the highest mountain in the country.

over 44 million people live in Kenya, this is less than the population of the U.K.

the longest river in Kenya, named River Tana, is 620 miles long – that is the same as the distance between Penzance, Cornwall and Perth in Scotland.

English and Swahili are the main two languages spoken but there are over 60 in total!
