Welcome to Year 2! We hope you have all enjoyed a relaxing summer break!
This term our topic is ‘The Great Fire of London’. We will be learning all about Samuel Pepys and how the fire started as well as making our own Tudor houses! In maths, we will be covering place value, multiplication and division. We will be learning about absorbent and waterproof materials in science, designing a new school roof from the most suitable materials. In RE, the children will learn about the story of creation and how the world was different compared to today.
Our PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday where we will be taking part in hockey and dance. Please ensure your child is prepared for all weathers. Earrings must be removed before they come into school on these days and hair will need to be tied back for safety.
It is so important that your child reads with you at home. It helps them to become more independent in their lessons and develops a lifelong love of learning. Please read with your child at least 4 times a week and record each session in their journals. The children are all part of the reading challenge and will achieve certificates throughout the year for reading regularly.
