Term 3 Welcome and Homework

Welcome back to Term 3. The last week has been incredibly full our feet don't feel as though they have touched the ground! We would like to welcome Mrs Shanks to our Year. As you may know Mrs Shanks is taking over from Mrs Durham later this term. Please make her feel welcome.

Term 3 will see Year 2 study the themes "Systems of Transport" and "Push and Pull". The overarching theme is "Journeys" with a novel study on The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and The Littlest Refuge by Ahn Do.

There is a lot of enthusiasm around these units of study so please don't hesitate to contact myself or Mrs Shanks about them.
