Year 2

 Welcome to Year 2!  


This half term, our topic is called Around The World.


We are reading Pattan's Pumpkin, which is a beautifully illustrated book that's set in India. The story is all about a pumpkin that is nurtured and grows huge, providing rescue and shelter in a time of need. 


Most of our topics link closely to the book - take a look at the document,
'What we are learning this half term' below, to find out more. 





PE is on Monday and Thursday - please ensure your child has their PE in school. Thank you. 



We'll post photos of our wonderful learning journey, below. Be sure to check regularly, to see what we've been up to. 



What we are learning this half term

  Our 'Around The World' learning journey

We decorated our giant pumpkin using mehndi patterns.

After our trip to Kenyon Hall Farm, we used our pumpkins to create a boat, just like in the story - Pattan's Pumkin. Then we tested them to see if they sunk or floated. What fun we had!

The road safety lady came to visit us today. She taught us how to be safe when we cross the road.

Today, we had a special visitor in Year 2. We've been learning about India and Pakistan, and Mrs Rashid came to teach us about life in Pakistan. She brought lots of interesting things for us to look at.
