Welcome to Year 2!

 

Welcome back!

We hope you have had an exciting and restful break over the Christmas period, recharged your batteries and are ready to jump straight into the new Spring term

 

Our Spring Topic Information  

In this term, our geography focus will be about jungles and where these can be located around the World. In history we will be learning about Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. In DT we will be looking at moving mini beasts. In art we will be looking at animal art and in science, we will be looking at growth and survival and growing plants. It is going to be a very exciting and fun filled term.

As part of our RE topic, we will also be visiting one of the Gurdwaras in the local community!

Our Year 2 Timetable 

The timetable below shows when children will need to bring in specific items during the week. It is childrens' responsibility to ensure that they bring the correct equipment and kit on specific days. If any changes are made, parents will be notified via parent pay or via text message. We ask that children bring in their reading records and books daily, so that we are able to read with the children whenever possible.
