Introduction to Year 2


A huge welcome back to you all after the Christmas holiday, the children have already enjoyed sharing their news with us and are excited about our new topic which is linked to Pirates.

This half term we are learning all about:

  • The oceans and continents with particular reference to the Caribbean which was where many pirates in the past sailed and plundered!
  • The physical and human features of our local area and Jamaica.
  • Famous pirates from the past.
  • Famous scientists and some of their inventions.
  •  How Jewish people celebrate the Shabat.

Take a look at our newsletter for more information.
