Miss MacSween

Welcome to Year 2


Miss MacSween and Mr Howarth


Class Dojo is a great way for me to keep in touch with you all. It's also a great to share what you've been up to at home!


The Summer term's context for learning within our vision is ‘Superheroes: Small Actions, Big Differences'

We will be reading the story of 'Grandad's Secret Giant' by David Litchfield. 

"He has hands the size of tables," Grandad said, "legs as long as drainpipes and feet as big as rowing boats. Do you know who I mean?"

"Yes," sighed Billy. "The Secret Giant. But he's not real!" Billy doesn't believe his Grandad when he tells him there's a giant living in his town, doing good deeds for everyone. He knows that a giant is too big to keep himself hidden. And why would he WANT to keep himself a secret? But as time goes on, Billy learns that some secrets are too BIG to stay secret for long...      This wonderful story is about belonging and friendship, and it teaches the importance of tolerance and acceptance. 

We will also take opportunities to make comparisons between this text and our class text 'The BFG' by Roald Dahl.
