Tweseldown Infant School


Welcome to Year 2 and Woodpecker Class!

Woodpecker Class thoroughly enjoyed our last topic; 'Animal Explorers'.  As the warmer weather creeps in, we will be exploring the world of 'Magical Minibeasts'.  This will build on our knowledge of living things and we will learn about lifecycles. We will also investigate the importance for humans of exercise and eating the right amounts and types of food.  We will continue to monitor our longitudinal study and the growth of the apple tree we planted.

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-mache minibeasts;  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!
