Autumn Term

Our first topic this term is 'Meerkat Mail' and is based on the book of the same name by Emily Gravett. We will be exploring the story, writing letters and describing different settings. We will also explore different Habitats and locate them around the World.

Excitingly, we recently went on a trip to 'All Things Wild'; to meet the Meerkats and find out more about where animals live and what they need to survive. We had a really exciting day!

In year 2, we continue to follow Monster Phonics and in maths, we will be focussing on place value to 100 as well as addition and subtraction and shape.

We will also be looking at portraits in our Art lessons and in DT we will be designing, making, eating and evaluating pizzas.
