Year 2

Welcome back to our last term in Year 2. We have a very busy term ahead full of learning through our topic ‘Carnival of the Animals’ as well as completing the end of Key Stage One SATs and preparing for life in Year Three.

In April, we launched our topic by visiting Peak Wildlife Park and saw lots of different animals. We even got to stroke some! After what has felt like an endless winter we were lucky to have our tip on an extremely hot day so a fantastic day was had by all as we reflected on the wonderful animals that God has given us. What a lovely way to begin the term!
