Welcome to Year 2
Our teacher in Year 2 is Miss Stokes. We are very lucky in Year 2 to have two fantastic Teaching Assistants, Miss Smith and Miss Harden. We do lots of fun, exciting things in Year 2 which incorporate all aspects of the curriculum. Please look on our blog to see what we have been doing.
We also have our own Learning Wall - see link below. We use the resources on the Wall to research out topics and curriculum work in school. Please use these resources at home to further develop your child's learning.

Year 2 Curriculum Overview
This term our topic is all about a contrasting non-European country, South Africa. Throughout this topic we will be finding out about how South Africa is similar and different to where we live. We will do this through a variety of different ways, ranging from an African drumming workshop to listening to stories set there. We will also be looking at and creating some African artwork. To further enhance our topic we will all be selecting a different country in Africa and using this as the basis of this term's Learning Log.
Our Class Novel
Our Reading focus for this half term will be sharing stories as a class. We will be listening to stories, predicting what might happen and sharing our opinions backed up by evidence from the text.
