Welcome to Year 2!
In Year Two, Miss Booth and Mrs Fowler help us every day with our work. Year Two is a very important final year in Key Stage 1 and the children continue to develop their independent skills in preparation for Key Stage 2.
Our PE day is Wednesday and our spelling checks are on Monday. New spelling words are sent home via Seesaw on a Monday. Homework will be given out every Friday through Seesaw and expected to be handed in the following Wednesday.
Please don't hesitate to pop in and see us if you have any questions!
This term, our topic is Movers and Shakers! We will be learning all about significant people who have had an impact on the world.

This term, our topic is Beside the Seaside! We will be learning about the location of the world's seas and oceans and about the human and physical features of a coastline. We will compare and contrast a coastal town in the United Kingdom to one outside of Europe and we will learn about significant explorers. Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!
This term, our topic is called Turrets and Tales! We will be exploring the magic of fairy tales and castles. We will be taking a step back in time to explore different monarchs and royal residences.
