The Year 2 team at Lakeside

Forest Fun: Forest fun will take place every other Tuesday. Please ensure that your child comes into school with suitable clothing and footwear.
Homework is given out on Friday to be returned on the following Wednesday.

Our topic 'This is Me', will enable children to develop an understanding of their own strengths and talents by being motivated in finding out about inspirational people past and present. The children should understand and appreciate the qualities needed to be resilient to achieve a goal through making connections with a range of quality texts (The Bear and the Piano, The Dot, All the ways to be smart).
Welcome to the Year 2 Summer Term topic 'What a wonderful world'. Our key question this term will be to explore how we can help our planet. Children will develop their knowledge and understanding of the world; understand their role within the school, local and wider community and develop an awareness of themselves, their responsibilities and actions. Our key text will be 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.
Here are some useful documents and handy tips to support your child in Year 2.
This term, our theme is ‘The Wonders of Africa.' Africa is such a diverse continent so we want to bring to life all that it has to offer. We will be exploring the animals, landscapes, cultures, music and artwork. Keep checking out our Year 2 twitter page to see what we are learning about each week. Please let us know if you have your own African stories or experiences to share with the Year 2 children, we would love to hear all about them.
