Welcome to Year 2's page. Mrs Mead is the class teacher and Mrs McCarthy and Mrs Cawley are the teaching assistants working with the class. We have lots of exciting topics and learning planned for the children this coming half term.
This half term we will be looking at our Local area in history and geography topic. We will be learning about where things are located geographically and how long they may have been there! We will also be visiting our local church and going on a walk of the village.
In art we are learning about observational drawing and portraits. Our science topic this term is 'All about me'. We will be learning about what we need to grow and how to ok after our bodies. We will also be looking at different types of food which help us have a balanced diet. This will include a food pyramid, food diary, exercise and keeping healthy. The children will also sample a varied healthy breakfast.
We hope you all enjoyed the Summer break and hope you're looking forward to a learning packed fun Autumn term!
