Spring term in Year 2

 

Welcome back and we hope you have had a relaxing Christmas break. 

 

This term our theme is Castles and Dragons.  We will be learning all about castles, going on a visit to Windsor Castle, looking at and recreating part of the Bayeux tapestry, and designing and making our own castles.  In our whole class reading sessions we will be reading and discussing How to train your dragon.  In Science we will be learning about plants.

 

 

 

                                                              

In our PSHE lessons with Jigsaw Jo we will be learning about 'Dreams and Goals' and 'Healthy Me'.
