Year 2

Year 2 pupils…

Welcome to the Year 2 section of the Alban Wood webpage.


We would like to welcome the children back to school for the Summer Term.  
This term our Topic is Horrid Henry goes on Holiday – It is a cross curricular topic, this means we will be studying History, Geography, Art and Design Technology. We will be learning to name the continents and the oceans. We will be taking Horrid Henry on holiday to Australia – learning compass directions. We will be researching the differences and similarities of Australia and the UK. We will learn about the history of Australia and discovering and recreating traditional Aboriginal Art. We will also be making moving 3D vehicles and using saws to create their axels. A very exciting time for year 2!
PE – Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. This term we are learning to choreograph a dance in our indoor PE lessons and we will also be playing team games in our outdoor PE lessons. Please ensure your child has appropriate PE clothes including trainers or plimsoles in school every day.
Clothing – Please make sure all items of clothing are names clearly and that they come dressed for all possible weathers – a waterproof coat and as it gets warmer and hotter a hat to keep the sun out of their eyes and sun cream applied at home. 
Daily mile – We do the daily mile every day and the children enjoy running it, please make sure they have suitable footwear
Bringing items from home – please do not allow your child to bring in toys from home as we can’t take responsibility for them. 
Many thanks for all your support
