Welcome to Year Two!
This term we will be taking an exciting trip to Japan. We will be leanring about what it could be like to live in a lively city like Tokyo and how this would be different to living in Leamington. We will learn about the physical geography of Japan finding out about some of the important landmarks that we could visit such as Mount Fuji and the Japanese Alps. We will also learn about some elements of Japanese culture like the traditional past times of Shodo and the different festivals and celebrations that are held throughout the year.

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.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has a full PE kit in school every day. PE kit should include shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt or polo shirt and appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.
