Tweseldown Infant School


Welcome to Year 2 and Robin Class!

Robin Class have really enjoyed last half term’s topic ‘Animal Explorers’. We loved writing about our perfect pet, explaining their personalities and features. Have a look at our display in the cloakroom to find out what pets we chose!

This half term we will be learning all about creepy crawlies in our ‘Magical Minibeast’ Topic. We will build on our knowledge of living things by learning about lifecycles and we will be investigating the importance of exercising and eating the right amounts and types of food for humans.

We will continue to note the changes to our apple tree that we planted in the autumn term, as part of our longitudinal study. 

Our learning in English will be based on Roald Dahl’s ‘James and the giant peach’. We look forward to getting stuck into this chapter book! We will be learning to write a persuasive holiday leaflet for a journey on board a peach! Soon you will get to meet our very own creepy crawlies! We will be making papier-mâché minibeasts; messy, but fun! 

There is lots to look forward to! This half term, we will be celebrating authors, books and stories during ‘Book Week’. Make sure you join us for the pancake races and the Spring hat parade!
