Y2 Curriculum

As we step into the exciting new term, I'm thrilled to share with you our upcoming journey: Antarctica Adventure! Over the next few weeks, your children will immerse themselves in the wonders of Antarctica, exploring its climate, physical landscapes, and human geography. We'll compare these findings to our home town of Harlow, sparking insightful discussions about geographical diversity.

In science, we'll delve into the fascinating world of plants. From understanding the intricate parts of a plant to discovering what they need to thrive, your little ones will embark on an exploration of nature's green wonders. We'll also begin unravelling the mysteries of seeds and bulbs, igniting curiosity about the process of growth.

In PE, the focus will be on cricket, offering  a chance to develop their skills while enjoying the thrill of team sports. Additionally, we'll be gearing up for the much-anticipated sports day, where teamwork, sportsmanship, and friendly competition will take centre stage.

You may have received a letter regarding our well-being learning initiatives. Please know that we prioritise the holistic development of your children, and we're always here to address any questions or concerns you may have. 

Starting this term, we'll be incorporating Lexia, an engaging online reading program, into our curriculum. This will be happening Mondays through Wednesdays, providing an enriching opportunity for the children to enhance their reading skills in a fun and interactive way.

Now, let's talk about Thursdays and Fridays! On Thursday afternoons and all day Fridays, we'll have the pleasure of welcoming Mr. Worton-Geer to our classroom. He'll be leading our students through a diverse array of subjects, including computing, art, RE, PE, and music. 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please don't hesitate to reach out. Here's to an exciting term filled with growth, learning, and memorable experiences!
