This half terms topic is 'Our local area' and we will be visiting Thurmaston village. In our PE sessions we will be learning to play tag rugby.

Our PE sessions are on Monday and Thursday - please ensure all jewellery is removed.

Here is our list of recommended books to read in Year Two (Some of these books will be to share with an adult):

  1. The Twits by Roald Dahl
  2. Mr Gum by Andy Stanton
  3. The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy
  4. Mr Majeika by Humphrey Carpenter
  5. The Day The Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt
  6. The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey
  7. Nim’s Island by Wendy Orr
  8. Supertato by Sue Hendra
  9. Mr Wolf's Pancakes by Jill Fernley
  10. The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson

We would also highly recommend that children have access to traditional tales as this will develop their language and understanding of story structures.

e.g Rumpelstiltskin, The Magic Paint Brush, Beauty and the Beast and The Moon in the Pond
