Form 2 Autumn Term Letter

We will explore a broad range of animals and their habitats all over the world. Students will work towards presenting an exhibition of the classes learning throughout the term. Students will be given a range of different animals from a variety of different habitats that they will display in their first assembly and within a classroom exhibition where they can share their learning with you. Through the end of term project, the children will have had the opportunity to research, explore and discover a range of endangered and non-endangered animals.

Areas of the curriculum that will be covered throughout the topic are English, Science, Geography, History and the Arts. Mathematics objectives within the project will cover measurement throughout this topic although majority will be taught separately to ensure the full coverage of the Year Two curriculum.


  • Homework – Maths and English homework will be handed out on a Friday and is to be returned on Wednesday. Homework will be set the week commencing the 15th September.
  • Reading and Spelling – students will be grouped over the coming week and groups sent home on Friday 15th September. Students will change their reading books and spelling words based on the day they do guided reading and testing throughout the week. Three books will be sent home on that day for the week and new spelling words given to students. Please ensure that they are brought back the next week according to your child’s group day. Please try and read with your child for ten minutes each day. The children will have different spelling (depending on which ones they need to learn) based on ongoing assessments. This will be sent home the week commencing 18th September
