Upcoming Dates & Events for Year 2
Welcome to Year 2
Autumn Term 2017
We are excited about exploring Africa as we find out all about Lila and her village in the east of Kenya.
Using the story Lila and the Secret of Rain, we will find out about and compare the weather and climate of Kenya and our local area, as well as the wildlife found on the plains and deserts of this huge continent.
We will write our own versions of Lila, and, as ever, will be working really hard on our handwriting, presentation and grammar.
We will be learning about Yinka Shonibare and his amazing design skills as we create our own African repeated patterns and use these to make our own t-shirts. In DT our project is to design and make African recycled street toys.
So sing along with Che Che Kulay and Jambo Bwana with us!

This is the online reading scheme which allows your child access to hundreds of books at the click of a button. Your child can read them with you or when older & more confident, independently. Each book contains comprehension questions to boost reading skills. Points collected for completing the questions correctly can be used to play games. All of the books can be read to your child by the computer too.
