Welcome to Year 2!
Welcome back after the Christmas break. We have some exciting new topics to cover this term. We are learning about The Great Fire of London through different areas of our curriculum. In Literacy we will be learning about writing in the past tense, so that we can write diaries like Samuel Pepys did in 1666; in DT we will be making bread like the King's baker did, but we will not start a fire! We will also colourwash a fiery sky and create a silhouette of the London skyline and also create collages of Tudor houses. Lots of fun and learning!
Science will fit in nicely with our topic, as we will investigate which materials are best to make a house; unlike the wooden structures in The Great Fire of London.
Llamas will continue to have PE on Wednesday and Polar Bears on Friday. Please remember to send your child's PE kit in so that they can take part fully in their activities.
Don't forget that Buster's reading night is Wednesday! Also, please continue to support your child's reading, homework and spelling practise each week.
We will keep you updated with news about our learning throughout the term.
