We hope you had a lovely half term break and are ready for a very busy Autumn 2. This half term the children will be learning about homes when their grandparents were young and how technology has changed. We will also be continuing our science topic on how we stay healthy and learning and writing poems, writing instructions and fairy tales in Literacy. Of course,  it's also that time of year when Year 2 will learn and perform the School Christmas production. I know they are all very excited about this!


A big thank you to all the parents who came to 'Bring a parent to school' morning and supported their children in writing their bonfire poem in the style of 'The Sound Collector'. We had a great morning and the children really enjoyed sharing their work with you. 



Please visit this page regularly as it will be updated with photos of our work and links to support learning. Take a look at our planning documents (coming soon) to find out more about what we will be learning this year.



Children will require their P.E. kits every Thursday and Friday. They should leave it in school until the half term holiday. This will ensure that they don’t regularly forget their P.E. kit. The children will need either pumps or trainers as the children will participate in outdoor and indoor activities throughout the term. If your child doesn’t have the correct footwear, they may not be able to participate in certain activities, which would have a negative impact on their physical development.


Reading Books & Lending Library

The children will change their reading books once a week on a Friday. On this day your child will receive two reading books to read during the course of the week. Please ensure your child brings their books every Friday for changing. Could you please sign their reading journal to show that your child has read their reading books? Remember, it is important you read with your child for fifteen minutes every evening. Lending library books will also be given out every Friday, please ensure your child completes their book review so they can collect points.


Learning log

Children will be given learning log challenges each term which are linked to the work they have been covering throughout the topic. This needs to be handed in on specific dates, please take this opportunity to work with your child and tackle the challenges with a creative, imaginative mind that celebrates your child's ideas.




If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to us at the start or end of the school day.
