What are we learning this half term?
This half term in Year 2 we will be learning...
Throughout this half term we will be focusing on a different value each week. The values we will be exploring are respect, love, forgiveness, service, friendship and peace. We will be listening to and responding to a range of bible stories that teach Christians about the importance of our values.
We will be exploring a wonderful book called 'Grandad's Island' by Benji Davies. Throughout this unit, the children will engage in lots of exciting activities which will deepen their understanding of vocabulary, grammar and comprehension. All of these skills will build up throughout the half term and will be used to help the children write their own narrative and an information text based on this book. We will be working hard to improve our handwriting skills this half term.
