Welcome to Year 2!
In the Autumn term, our topic was 'A Passport to Jamaica.' We studied the island of Jamaica in our Geography lessons and learned all about Mary Seacole, a nurse from Jamaica in our history lessons. We also compared her to another famous nurse, Florence Nightingale.
We enjoyed a Jamaican topic day, a forest schools day, a Science trip to the Wildside centre and a music performance.
Our reading focus was the Twits and we brought in our home made creations inspired by the story. During the last few weeks of the term, we worked extremely hard on our Key Stage One nativity - The Big Little Nativity!
This term we are reading 'The Day the Crayon's Quit' by Drew Daywalt and 'Fantastic Mr Fox' by Roald Dahl.
