Year 2

Year 2 begins with a trip back in time, delving in to the lives of ‘Women who changed the world’. Through this topic the children learn about the impact of significant individuals such as Mary Seacole, Amelia Earhart and Frida Kahlo on our lives today. After studying the lives of these women, the children will capture a moment in time with a time capsule on the life of Mary Seacole. Why don’t you have a go at making a time capsule of your own at home? After half term, we look closely at a significant event in British history: Guy Fawkes and The Gunpowder Plot, which is set to provide the children with an ‘explosion’ of exciting learning experiences.

Thank you for your support. If you have any concerns or questions please get in touch with your child’s class teacher.

Kind Regards
