This year in Year 2 we are looking at a range of topics, including My World, The Great Fire of London, We are Britain, Amazing Animals, Awesome Authors and Robin Hood. This half term, Year 2 are focussing on ‘My World’, learning about ourselves and the world around us. We will be exploring our families, homes, local areas, timelines and taking a look at key events in British history.
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.
