Hello Year Two,


Our topic this term is 'Why We Remember' where we will be learning about World War One and Remembrance.

Our PE days this term are on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

 I'm looking forward to seeing you all this week. In Year Two we are promoting independence, this means that children will take responsibility as per our school rule for their belongings.
