Welcome to year 2!


Hello and welcome to our 1st term in year 2. We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable Summer. 


Topic-The Great Fire of London

This term we will be exploring old time London and the Fire which almost destroyed the whole city.

We will first look at the UK and it's countries followed by their capital cities. This will lead us into an adventure through time, precisely 353 years ago, when houses were made out of wood and London's size was a tiny fraction of what is was today. We will focus on the big question-'Why and how did the Fire spread so quickly?' Children will use enquiry and questionning to answer this mystery for themselves. 

Through this Topic we will identify key features of poetry specifically rhyme, rhythm, alliteration and repetition. After imagining what our senses would experience in the fire using our forest area, we will write a poem applying key features and using interesting adjectives to describe the scenes of 1666 London. 

Homework will be set on a Friday which will consist of reading, spelling and timestables. Our children can access BUG CLUB at home and should continue to read every night for 10 minutes. Reading at home is very important for children to develop their learning across all subjects. As a school are very proud of how much reading our children do at home and are looking forward to this continuing as we encourage the children to enter new worlds and meet new and interesting characters.

PE will continue to be on a Wednesday and Thursday so children will need their full PE kit, including pumps, not footbal boots.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak to me at the end of the day or schedule a longer appointment. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you over the year.

Mr Redmond and Mrs Sorvel
