Going going gone!! Ms Tarr with 2 lovely little helpers set up an ice pop stand to raise funds for extra bits for WRAPZ - by the time Ms Stickland made it out there at 3.40 it was sold out! They will be back tomorrow so make sure you have your 50p! 🍦


The Reception gardening club have been doing a great job at caring for our plants in this gorgeous weather. We have now extended the invitation to the children in KS1 to water the plants and vegetables at break time through a rota 🌾🌻

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 for Summer 2 term everyone! 

Dear Parents and Carers, 

We hope that you had a wonderful half term and enjoyed the sunshine and being able to see more of your friends and family. We have loved having the children back in school this week, they look so much bigger even after just a week off. We guess they must be getting ready for Year 3!

We are so excited to be able to go on a trip this half term to the exciting and wonderful Lego Land. You will find more details and a permission slip at the end of this newsletter. As always get in touch if you have any questions.

This term in maths we are beginning by looking at time. Children will learn to tell the time to 5 minute intervals and this is something you can really help your children with at home. We will then move on to learning about mass, capacity and temperature for the final few weeks of term. Children will measure and compare the mass and capacity of objects and learn to read the temperature. There will then be a focus on problem solving.

During the first part of the term in English we will be writing instructions. We will then spend a few weeks reading and re-telling the hilarious tale of Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl.

In Geography we will be learning all about Kenya. We will learn about its location and climate and about its many different landscapes. We will learn about the physical features of Kenya and then the human features. We will compare life in Nairobi with life in London and end the term learning about the nomadic Maasai tribe. In Science we will be looking at materials. We will think about the properties of a range of materials and use scientific vocabulary to describe them. We will then look at the suitability of different materials for different purposes and objects.

In History we will be learning about the evolution of games. We will learn about the games that children used to play in Victorian times and do a case study lesson on Monopoly. We will look at how the world’s most popular game, football has developed over the years before looking at the impact of digital games on how children play.

Our focus this term in RE will be Christianity and we will be exploring the theme of belonging. We will encourage the children to think about what it means to belong and how it makes them feel. We will discuss communities they are part of and what that means to them and their families.

We will continue to deliver all the specialist subjects to the children this term.  The specialist teachers have planned some amazing lesson for you online see their newsletter for more details.
