Welcome to term 2! We hope that you all had a fantastic half term break and are now ready to begin a new term :). We have lots to look forward to this term and on the build up to Christmas. As well as a new topic we have the Christmas fair and Christmas productions. 


Our topic this term is 'London's Burning'. Our learning will be based around the Great Fire of London. We will learn all about the events of the Great Fire, such as how and where it started and why it spread so quickly. We will look at Samuel Pepys' diary to help us with our research. We will then think of our own ideas on how the fire could have been stopped sooner. As well as learning all about the history, we will create some fantastic fire art work.  


P.E. will be on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has the correct kit on this day. The children will also have African drumming lessons every Tuesday.


The 48 spellings for this term are below. The children will be tested on these in December. Weekly spellings and times tables will be given out every Monday for a test on Friday.


Is you have any queries or would like to speak to us about anything we will be available at 8:30am for quick chats before school or you can make an appointment with us after school. There is also the box on this page where you can contact us and we will get back to you within 48 hours. 


Don't forget to take a look at our weekly learning below. 

Termly Spellings

Year 2 SATs will be undertaken the week beginning 20th May 2018. For KS1 the children will sit tests in Maths, Reading and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. In Year 2 the SATs are much more informal than those in Year 6. They are undertaken in small groups and there is no time pressure. SATs results inform the Teacher Assessment judgements made in July, but do not dictate them. We have attached a DfE leaflet for further information. If you have any questions please come in and see us.
