In Year Two we have fun exploring many new things and we enjoy being active, confident learners.
Our topic this term is all about The Gunpowder Plot. In History, the children will learn about different historical events and order them on a timeline. They will also find out all about Guy Fawkes and the Plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament.
In Science, the children will investigate and explore the uses and properties of different materials. They will even help the Three Little Pigs choose the best material for a strong, protective house!
In D&T, the children will be designing and creating buildings similar to those from the 17th Century.
Term 1 - Trains, Planes and Automobiles
The children enjoyed exploring different modes of transport from around the world this term, as well as naming and locating continents and oceans. They also used compass directions to plot a journey.
We also enjoyed making food chain mobiles in Science and had great fun creating some transport pictures using different techniques!

For both PE and swimming please make sure that earrings are taken out due to health and safety.
All personal belongings and clothing should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
In Year Two we encourage the children to read every day or at least three times a week. The home school reading books must come into school daily. The children have the opportunity to change their reading book every day and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school. We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read. In addition, the children have an opportunity to receive certificates for the amount of times they read at home as part of our new Race to Read challenge!
We are also introducing ERIC TIME (Everyone Reads In Class) across the school. ERIC Time will happen every Friday afternoon for ten minutes. To encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading, all children and adults in class will be reading at this time.
