Year 2 is taught by Miss McCurrie and teaching and learning is supported by Mrs Parker.
I hope you have had a lovely summer holiday. I have enjoyed hearing all about your summer adventures!
This term's learning will be based around the story "The Sheep Pig" by Dick King Smith. If you are not familiar with the story, you might have watched the film based on the book, called "Babe". It is a fantastic story following the adventures of a pig who really wants to be a sheep dog! If you would like to purchase this book to read along at home, you can find it on thebookpeople.co.uk for around £2.99. Our classroom has been transformed ready for our learning and we also have a 'reading forest' which the children have been really excited to go in! We will also be looking out for any other fantastic books we find along our way. If you have any farming books you would like to share with us, please bring them in to enjoy with the class.
This term, our author focus will be Dick King Smith. Dick King Smith has written 130 children's books, including The Sheep Pig, The Hodgeheg and lots of other books about animals. http://www.dickkingsmith.com/
Please visit the above website for more information on this author. We have a space in the classroom for lots of his books and we will be challenging ourselves to read (or listen to) as many of his books as we can. If you have any of his books at home, or spot any while visiting the library, please bring them in to share with the class.
