Class 2

Welcome to the Spring Term in Class 2


It has been lovely getting back to school after a restful Christmas break and hearing all about what the children have got up to during the holidays. 


The first part of the term, in Year 2 we will be reading 'This is How we do it' by Matt Lamothe to support our non-fiction letter writing. We will use this book to make comparisons between our school day and the children in Italy, Iran, Peru, Uganda, Russia, Japan and India. The children will have opportunity to write their own letter to a pen pal at our link school in Maweni, Tanzania to tell them all about themselves. 


We will also be reading a Little People, BIG DREAMS book all about Amelia Earhart in our History lessons to discover more about the first female aviator to fly across the Atlantic Ocean and her legacy!
