Shadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring


Welcome toShadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring

Year 2

Welcome to 2H & 2M



On this page you can find some useful information about our class work in Maths. English and our Topics which include our Geography, History, Art and DT work. From time to time we may also share pictures and news from other subjects including Computing, RE, PSHE and PE.


Our current topic for Summer 1 is 'Roar!!', where, throughout our Science topic, we will begin to look at pre-historic creatures and their life, habitat and reasons behind extinction and how this links with the children's existing knowledge about living creatures. Historically, the children will learn about the work of famous paleontologists, such as Mary Anning and explore why and how their discoveries helped to understand the life of the dinosaurs. 



The children will be exploring dinosaurs from a fictional point of view too, as we read, 'Harry and his Bucket Full of Dinosaurs'. The story that follows Harry as he helps clear out his Nan's attic and stumbles across the bucket of dinosaurs. The children will practice using commas in a list, descriptive language and adverbs to retell the story. The children will also look at facts that we know about dinosaurs as a result of the exploratory work of people such as Mary Anning and Robert Bakker.   







Our PE day this year is Friday - so when your child's class is scheduled for PE - the children can come to school in comfortable and weather appropriate sports clothes - (jogging bottoms,/shorts, t-shirt/jumper, trainers/pumps). 


Summer 1 = 2H - P.E.




As part of the UK curriculum objectives we also provide out children with an invaluable Forest School experience that also takes place on a Friday - so ENSURE you child has 'Wellies' and suitable outdoor clothes on - fitting to the weather - a full body rain suit is provided to go over the children's clothes too. 


Summer 1 = 2M - Forest School

Links are also provided to support you and your child to get the most out of their classroom learning whilst at home.

Enjoy exploring and thank you.
