Welcome to Year 2!

This Summer term we have lots of exciting new learning happening.

In English we will be looking at a wonderful story called The King Who Banned The Dark by Emily Haworth-Booth. This gorgeous picture book teaches us that we need the dark in order to enjoy the light.  

In Summer 2 we will be looking at the story of Rosie Revere a witty picture book about pursuing your passion. Rosie may seem quiet during the day, but at night she's a brilliant inventor of gizmos and gadgets who dreams of becoming a great engineer.

In our shape lessons we will be learning all about 2D and 3D shapes as well as their properties. In direction and position we will learn how to order and arrange objects in patterns and sequences, describing their position in relation to each other. They will also continue to build on their knowledge of the language of position, direction and movement that they learnt in year 1.
