Market Drayton Infant & Nursery School

‘An excellent, happy school, where we enjoy learning’


In Year 2 the children all love to put on their white coats and become scientists! Science teaching, like other areas of the curriculum, is interleaved, allowing the children to commit learning to memory by returning to concepts throughout the year. In addition to the KS1 programme of study, Year 2 pupils also study Forces, Electricity and Light.
