Welcome to Year 2's Class Page!
Each half-term, this class page will be updated with information regarding our learning in school.


In English this half-term we will begin by using 'The Last Wolf' by Mini Grey as our inspiration. We will write letters persuading people to take action to help save endangered animals.

We will then read 'Grandad's Secret Giant' by David Litchfield, a lovely story about Billy's quest to help his Grandad's Secret Giant feel welcome in their town.
