In Year 2, we have many exciting topics. Our topic changes each half term which are:

We are working hard to be come better writers, this includes the quality of our sentences as well as starting to join our letters with cursive handwriting. We are very lucky to use a selection of quality texts, fiction and non-fiction, in our English lessons. Writing tasks include story retelling, letters, descriptions, recipes and fact files. Below are some of the front covers of the books we will be reading in class.
