It's the Autumn Term!
Our 1st Topic: What makes you special?
For this topic, we will be finding out about ourselves and what makes each of us unique.
Our Literacy focus texts will be 'Owl Babies', 'Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge' and 'Dr Xargle's Book of Earthlets'. Each of these will look at different aspects of being special - family, friends, how we look and what we like about ourselves.
In our afternoons, during our Topic lessons we will look at Bromyard and what makes our home town and its local area so beautiful and special.
Also we will be making some Self Portraits, memory boxes, creating maps in Art and building Nests.

There are currently no events.
There are so many ways to improve your Maths skills in our everyday lives! Here are a few ideas!
Here are some ideas that may be useful when reading with your child at home. We do expect children in Year 2 to read at home daily. This doesn't have to be for long periods of time, it can be 5-10 minutes before bed or when you get home from school. Children who read will receive a star sticker on the chart in their Yellow Book -- each 25 stars will mean a certificate and prize dip!
