We hope you have all had a great Easter and have had a good weeks rest!
In our English lessons, we will be reading ‘The king who banned the dark’ and exploring letter writing using everything we have learnt so far. We will also be taking part in reading sessions where we will read new books all about ‘The Great Fire of London’, this will help to improve reading fluency and comprehension skills.
Please continue to do the fantastic job of encouraging your child to read at home both with the reading
books sent home and on bug club! We will be offering amazing rewards to children who read regularly.
In Maths we will start by finishing off the topic of measure, comparing and ordering units of measure. We will then move onto Geometry, recapping on the knowledge learned in Year 1 and developing this and introducing new information about shapes.
Our WTL topic this half term is Eastertide! We will be looking at the rest of Easter, the Resurrection, appearance to the disciples, Ascension and Pentecost. We will be looking at the Holy Spirit and beginning to ask and answer questions, understanding that some questions are simply too difficult to answer.
Out theme this half term is ‘The Great Fire of London’. We will be looking at differences between different ages in time. This topic will allow us to create amazing pieces of art work and will give us opportunities to understand the geography of the United Kingdom.
We also have the exciting project lead by Mr Birss which will involve us following the work of American street artist Keith Haring.
Our PE day is on a Wednesday, so please come dressed in your PE kit!
All children need to have a water bottle that stays in school. Please, if you haven’t already, send one in with your child.
