This year in Year 2 we are looking at a range of topics, including Amazing Me, The Great Fire of London, We are Britain, Amazing Animals, Awesome Authors and Robin Hood. This half term, Year 2 are studying Great Britain. We will be exploring the countries and cities of Great Britain, taking a look at key events in British history and learning all about the Queen and her family.
Reading is something we love to do and we really hope you can share this experience with your child. We ask you to listen to your child read daily and write a note in their diary to let the teacher know how they got on.
In Year 2, P.E is done every week. It is very important that each child brings their own P.E kit (shorts, t-shirt and plimsolls) and keeps this in school each half term.
