Welcome to the Year 2 Team
Turrets and Tiaras
Welcome to our Year Group page! This term we will be learning all about, princes, princess, knights, dragons and castles. We will also be looking closely at the various stories which break away from sterotypes based around princes and princesses.
This term we are looking at the the story 'The Paper Bag Princes'. This book is about a princess who challenges a dragon. The Paper Bag Princess addresses numerous themes. One theme Year 2 will focus on is reversing traditional gender roles, exploring the theme that beauty is more than skin deep and providing a different meaning to happily ever after. Typical fairy tales often portray women as weak characters waiting to be rescued by the handsome prince, but we will be looking at how the role has reversed in this story where the princess challenges a dragon to rescue Prince Ronald.

At Highlands our aim is to help our children become healthy and happy citizens of the world. To support this we would like you to make sure your child has a water bottle to help keep them hydrated at school. They will also need to have a healthy breakfast before they come to school. We are also working hard to provide our children with the healthiest lunches possible to make sure they are ready to learn in the afternoon. On a Monday and a Friday your child is allowed to have one treat in their lunch box. All children are able to bring a healthy snack to have at playtime such as a piece of fruit or cereal bar.
