Our Learning this term - Autumn 2019
The first half of the Autumn term will focus on science. We will explore what it takes to become a 'Champion for Life' including looking at the importance of exercise, food groups, eating a balanced diet and health and hygiene. We will be working scientifically to answer the question, which exercise makes my heart beat faster?
Autumn Term 2 2019
Next half term we will be learning about alternative traditional tales and looking at how music can enhance a story. We will be exploring Jack and the Beanstalk through different media and looking at alternative versions of the story. We will also be creating musical compositions and linking them to characters from the story.

We have had a fantastic start to the academic year and the children have settled well into the life of Year 2.

This term, our learning theme is Towers, Turrets & Tunnels. We have lots of exciting things planned for this half term, starting with exploring the text 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Browne.

School Visit to Lincoln Castle
We have had a fantastic day on our school visit to Lincoln Castle today (Monday 9th March). All children have enjoyed a tour of the Castle, received Knight training and tried on armour. They have also made their own shield and acted out a medieval banquet. The children have had a brilliant time and their behaviour has been impeccable. We have been extremely proud of both classes and how they have represented Hetts Lane.
Please take a look at the photos below to see what we've been up to! More photos will be posted as the week goes on!
