WELCOME TO YEAR TWO!
OUR YEAR TWOS ARE COOL, CLEVER AND KIND CHILDREN!
Our topic for this half term focuses on nurses - past and present. We will be learning about two very famous nurses from the past and comparing them with nurses nowadays. We will also have a theatre group come in and teach us about the nurses, and we will have the opportunity to dress up and get involved!
Our Science topic is 'Move it', which follows on from our Material Monster topic, but involves lots of scientific skills and experiments to do with materials.
During reading lessons, we will be reading James and the Giant Peach. We will also be continuing to learn French and play the recorder.
WORK OF THE WEEK:
Well done to Alexia for being the first 'work of the week' in 2019! Your front page for our new topic was drawn well and had lots of key words to do with nurses around the outside.
