Year 2

Welcome to Year Two!


This term we are learning all about Antarctica and the some of the people who have explored this isolated and diverse continent. Our main person of interest will be Ernest Shackleton and we will be learning about the Endeavour Exploration and the challenges that him and his team faced.

Please read with them every night, taking time to discuss what the story was about. Books from the library, other story books, picture books, newspapers, magazines and comics are all excellent reading materials and also provide children with the opportunity to experience different ways of writing and sharing information and also provides an alternative to their school reading book.
