Term 6

Overarching question

Does wealth define us?

We cannot believe that it is the last term of year 2! We have a very busy term with lots of sporting activities and a school trip planned. Look out for the letters that will be sent this week.  We will also be beginning to prepare the children for their transition into year 3 and help them feel settled ready for their move into lower key stage 2. As well as this, the children will continue to answer their overarching question and learn about the impact of The Great Fire of London and meaning of incarnation in the Bible. Our PE days will continue to be on a Monday and Tuesday


With the weather improving and temperatures rising, please can all the children come to school with a sun hat and plenty to drink! Children can bring sun cream into school which they can apply themselves. 


In science, the children have continued their learning all about materials. They have been exploring a range of materials and investigating what properties they to make them suitable for a range of objects.


In maths, the children have been continuing their unit on time. They have been practising telling the time to o'clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past. Some children can even tell the time to 5 minute intervals!

Poetry Slam!

The children loved practising the poem from Roald Dahl's revolting rhymes called 'Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf'. The children practised using expression, adding actions and making props for their performance.
