Year 2

At beginning of this half term we have been looking at The Great Fire of London and Guy Fawkes. This has covered lots of learning in English, Art and History. The second half of this term we will be looking at descriptive writing based on the Polar Express in English. 

The children will continue to learn recorders in music and explore the reasons why people give presents at Christmas in RE.

 The learning that has been going on is amazing and the confidence the children are showing is wonderful. We hope you agree!



This Week our Work of the Week goes to Finn N for a great diary entry based on historical events. Well Done!
