Year 2

Dear Parents,

Over the next 6 weeks, Year 2 will be following a unit of work on a theme that focuses on ‘Health’. This unit of work is part of the International Primary Curriculum.

During this unit we will be focusing on Science, Physical Education, and


In Science, we will be finding out:


• About eating the right foods


• About getting enough exercise


• Why our bodies need sleep


• What happens when we are ill


• How germs get inside our bodies


• How to protect our bodies


• About our senses


In Physical Education, we’ll be finding out:


• How exercise keeps our body healthy


• What activities we can do to stay fit

In International, we’ll be finding out:


• Why some people don’t have drinking water.



All of the work we are going to do has been specially written to help your child reach the learning goals. Children will be reading, researching, writing, illustrating, working on their own and working in groups. We will be checking to see how well your child has learned through particular activities and asking children to explain their work, perhaps to you.

We already know the interest you take in your child’s work. If you can, please discuss with your child the work they have done as the term progresses and let them teach you.

Talk with your child about how we can try to stay healthy by eating the right foods, getting enough sleep, taking exercise and protecting ourselves from germs by good hygiene practices.

By the end of the unit, we hope your child has achieved all of the learning targets. We hope they have had an enjoyable time in the classroom. And we hope you have enjoyed seeing your child work with enthusiasm. If you have any comments or questions about your child’s learning, please get in touch.


                              Thank you for your continued support.
