Year 2

​Welcome to Caterpillars and Dragonflies

Welcome back!

We hope you had a lovely Easter break and enjoyed the sunshine.

This term our topic is ‘Cracking Contraptions.’ We will be learning about the history of transport and the inventors who made them. During this topic, we will be learning about many different ‘cracking contraptions’ in the world and making our own cracking contraption vehicle.

We will also be learning about animals and their habitats. We will be learning about how animals adapt to their surroundings and how animals can survive in certain habitats.

We are also looking forward to our Brooklands Museum trip in May!

Don’t forget that the children should be reading and practicing their spellings every evening. If your child reads 5 times at home they can move their plane on our ‘Around the World’ display in school.

We are excited to get started on our new learning!

Mrs Banks and Miss Mulvihill.


These books are read as class texts over the course of the year to encourage positive and guided discussion of the protected characteristics. At Westfield, we strive to create an environment where children can share their opinions and ask questions.
