Year 2

We hope that you have enjoyed 'Loving Life' during the Easter break with your family and friends. We really look forward to helping you to flourish further this term with many fun activities and experiences. 


Remember, wherever possible, what we do in school is centred around our school values which are based on love in different ways. Share with your family how we show these school values or invite them to come and visit and see for themselves.

Love of God

Love of Others

Love of Myself

Love God's World

Love of Life





This term we will continue to study the thought-provoking book 'The Last Polar Bear' by Jean Craighead George. The content of the book will enhance our geography and science learning about polar regions and associated animal adaptation. Later in the term, we will move our Literacy learning on to 'The Bee Who Spoke' by Al MacCuish. In Science we will be developing our knowledge of plants and growing, making use of our space in Ruby's Garden.

If any family has any surplus plants through being over-enthusiastic when sowing seeds, we would be very happy to accommodate that surplus! 


Please look at the Curriculum Web below to see what else we are

learning this term.


In R.E. we will be thinking about the answer to this question:

What do Christians believe God is like?

Our Week

Please remember that children need navy shorts and an Englefield blue P.E t shirt. For outdoor P.E children will need also navy sweatshirt and navy tracksuit bottoms. This are in addition to play time 'overs'. Children also need a pair of outdoor shoes/trainers/wellies for play times.

Woodland Learning - Friday mornings

We are out and about again this term - exploring the woodland on the Englefield Estate. Mrs Sheppard and Mrs Street will be looking for at least 5 parent helpers each week as we are a larger group. We do need parents to help with Woodland Learning as without the legally required number of adults, we are unable to take the children out onto the Englefield Estate. If you are able to help, either regularly or just occasionally, please get in touch via our class email. 


Children will need 'overs' or a puddle suit with outdoor shoes or wellie boots on rainy days. As the weather gets warmer, please remember to apply sunscreen before your child comes to school and provide them with a hat, long sleeved top and leggings/trousers. The latter are important to protect against bites, stings and particularly ticks. 


Reading Lists

We love you to read anything and everything. Reading feeds your mind! The following list is merely a guide for families to help with choosing books from school, your local library or to have at home.
