Violet Class, Lily Class and Poppy Class
All the teaching staff in Year 2 would like to wish you a very Happy New Year.
Spring Term has two topics that the children always seem to enjoy and there is lots of opportunity for you to join your child in the classroom once again.
Spring 1 : The Great Fire of London
A history based topic that finds us building houses from 1666 and then setting them on fire! Very exciting! We learn about Samuel Pepys and write our own diary from his perspective. We also invite parents in to help us build fire engines with moving axles and end the term with a class museum which we hope you will enjoy visiting.
Spring 2: Distant Lands
This topic is largely Geography based, as we explore similarities and differences between The United Kingdom and countries in other parts of The World. Our Literacy focus is a text set in Kenya, called Mama Panya's Pancakes and we enjoy learning about life in Africa. A highlight for us all, is our African Drumming Session, when Arona visits us from Senegal and we learn how to play African drums.
You will find key dates listed below but these are subject to change and you will always be notified via email or text so please ensure your contact information is up to date with the school office. Thank you.
