Dear Year 2 Families,



The children have returned to school ready for their last term in Year 2, this year has flown past!



Over the next 7 weeks, Year 2 will be completing the current unit of work called 'The Magic Toymaker’ then follow this


up with 'People of the Past’ topic from the IPC. The topic of ‘People of the Past’ is a unit of work which


is part of the International Primary Curriculum. In this topic we will be learning about well-known people from the past


such as rulers, inventors, explorers, musicians and artists. During the topic we will have a dressing-up day where the


children can choose to dress up as a well-known person from the past, more details to follow.


Reading is vital and we encourage you to read with your child daily. Please record all of your child’s reading in their

Home/School Diary. Reading 5 or more times a week is rewarded with a dojo. The children will continue to access

Accelerated reading quizzes. The children will visit the school library each week and may choose a book to take home to

read. Please send library books to school on a Monday for changing.

Outdoor PE is on Thursday mornings, taught by Ryan. Indoor PE is on Friday mornings.

The children will need:

· White or red T-shirt

· Black shorts or jogging bottoms

· Black hoody or tracksuit jacket

· Trainers suitable for outdoor use in cold weather
(Slogans or football club affiliations are not permitted)

· Earrings should not be worn on PE days or they should be removed or taped by the child before the lesson. Long hair should be tied back.


Forest School learning will continue to take place on a Tuesday afternoon, each week alternating between classes. We kindly ask that you send your child to school with their Forest School kits (waterproofs) and wellington boots this week in readiness. The conditions could still be wet, cold and muddy this term so please ensure they have the appropriate clothing for this activity.


If you have any comments or questions about your child’s learning, please get in touch. We look forward to working with you and your child.


Kind regards,

The Year 2 Team
