Welcome back to a new year and new term. I hope you had a fabulous Christmas!
We’ve got lots of exciting things planned this term to help our learning about our new topic – Voyages of Discovery.
We are going to be learning about significant explorers and adventurers, their achievements and the impact that they made on the world around them. We will be looking in depth at the lives of Christopher Columbus, Ernest Shackleton and Felicity Aston. In Science we will be learning about the Animal Kingdom, and will have a visit from Simon Airey, the animal man, to enhance our learning.
Our P.E. days have changed this term, while swimming lessons are ongoing. Year 2 will be swimming each Friday for 5 weeks from 17th February. Children will need to come to school in their P.E. kit every Thursday and Friday until Easter. For this term there will no P.E. on a Monday.
To find out more about the focus in our areas of learning this term, our topic map and subject knowledge organisers are available at the following links.
