Year 2: Falcons

Welcome to Woodpecker Class!


Here you will find lots of useful information about our class and our curriculum. Please feel free to browse all of the different links and enjoy all of the exciting moments from our year captured on camera in our gallery page!

Be sure to return soon as we regularly update our pages.

Firstly, welcome to Year 2!


I hope you all had a relaxing break and the children are ready for the new term, which is full of exciting activities and discoveries. As usual we are looking forward to working together in partnership with parents, so if you have some spare time this term, please come and join us – please speak with me to arrange a mutually convenient time.


This term, our topic is V for Victory. During this term, we will be exploring what life was like for people during World War 2. In particular, we will be focusing on the experiences of children, including evacuation and rationing. In addition to gathering and learning facts about these events, the children will have the opportunity to really become immersed in learning through drama, poetry and story writing, using a range of texts including The Lion and the Unicorn. We hope to celebrate the completion of the topic with our own VE Day party, which may include an selection of rationed dishes!


If you have any questions or queries regarding school issues then please do not hesitate to contact me. Many thanks for your continued support.

Deputy Head Teacher, Lower School and Woodpecker Class Teacher
