Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Welcome to year 2!

What would an alien find exciting about Rubery?

Join Year 2 as we travel around the local area finding different places to visit in Rubery. An alien has crash landed in Rubery and it wants you to show it around. Where would you take it? What would you visit?

This geography based unit will focus on map work and looking for geographical features within the locality.

During the unit we will take a walk into Rubery Village Centre.

Spellings will be given on a Monday and tested on the following Monday. This year we will be testing spellings based on the spelling appendices found in the National Curriculum for year 2.

We will also go through the spellings during lesson times.
