Year 2

Hello Class 2! It's lovely to see you all back in school this week. I hope you all enjoyed a lovely break over half term and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine we have had! It has been wonderful to hear about all of the exciting things you have done and places you have visited. 


During our last half term in Class 2, we have lots of fun and exciting topics to look forward to. We will begin our new geography topic 'Our Wonderful World' and in DT, we will complete a project where we will design and make our own pizzas which I know you are all very excited about! I have included our knowledge organisers for this half term below for you to take a look at!

I will update books regularly on Active Learn so you can also access these if you'd like to do any additional reading! 


I am looking forward to seeing you all and hearing about all of the lovely things you have done over the Easter holidays!
