Year 2 is taught by Miss McCurrie and teaching and learning is supported by Mrs Parker.
Dear Parents and Children,
I hope you have had a wonderful Easter break. I have enjoyed hearing all about your Easter adventures. Everyone has come back to school so keen to find out about our new learning theme and we have already been working so hard! I am looking forward to teaching you all this term and can't believe this is our last term together. Time flies when we are having fun together!
This term's learning will be based around the Romans! We will be using lots of non fiction books to find out lots of information about what life was like in Roman times. We have already started our learning about the Roman army and are in the process of making our own Roman shields.
Alongside our non fiction reading, we will be reading the story "I was there...Boudica's Army" by Hilary McKay. This story is a fast-paced and fascinating account of a young girl in the Iceni tribe in AD 60. As Queen Boudica leads her people to march on Roman-occupied Colchester, young Kassy's beloved pony, Honey, is stolen away and taken to war. Will Kassy be able to find her and bring her home safely? This vivid first-hand account of a child's experience of life in ancient Britain really helps to bring to life our learning.
