Welcome to Year 2!


We are loving our Mexican Spice topic so far in Year 2! This week we have been looking at the features of instructional writing in English, where we have written our own recipe for Mexican Salsa and even got to make and taste salsa in our Topic lesson. We have also been studying Mexico in more detail and making comparisons to the country in which we live. 

A few reminders:

  • Please remember to bring in bookbags on Mondays so that we can change and  reissued new reading books and spellings.
  • Please remember to book packed lunches on ParentPay if your child has a school dinner.
  • Please remember to come into school wearing PE kits on Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Please ensure children leave school bags at home (except bookbags on Mondays) and only bring water bottles and snack with them each day.

Mexican Spice


Just as the weather has been heating up so too is our curriculum as we embark on our final topic of the academic year Mexican Spice! In this topic we will be doing lots of geographical work and comparing Mexico with the United Kingdom. We will be learning about Mexican culture, making Mexican food and learning about lots of Mexican festivals such as Mexican Day Of The Dead and Cinco De Mayo. As a special treat we may also get to watch one of Mrs. Glover's favourite Disney films Coco. So grab your sombreros amigos, a hot Mexican adventure awaits!
