Term 2 2017

Welcome back to Term 2. We hope you had a restful half term break and are ready for our busiest time of the year, the run up to Christmas!

This term our topic is called ‘God save the Queen.’ The topic will be based on the Queen’s Coronation and life in the 1950s, we will be making many links to other subjects as well. (Please see attached topic web). If you have any relatives that grew up in the 1950s then as part of our topic we would love them to come and visit us in class so that we can interview them, please let us know.

Our “Building Learning Power” theme this term is ‘Responsibility’. We will be looking at why it is important to show responsibility. We will be focussing on taking responsibility for animals, pets, families, other people and also safety on bonfire night.

Home Learning

Home learning will start week commencing Monday 30th October 2017

We encourage children to read daily at home. This can be your child’s school book, an e book from Bug club or a book from home! Every time your child reads at home please make a note of it in their Reading Record book. If it isn’t noted in the Reading Record book that your child has read their school book to an adult, we can not change it. This will mean that your child will have to wait until their next allocated day to change their reading book, a changing book day timetable can be found in the classroom and on the door.

Below is the timetable for home learning:

  • Monday – Words to learn (activity now planned for children to complete in book and hand in to school the next day) and reading
  • Tuesday –Reading
  • Wednesday – Reading and handwriting (handwriting is due in on the Friday)
  • Thursday – Reading
  • Friday – Reading and Brain Busters ( due in on the following Monday. Please allow only 7 minutes for Brain busters)


PE will start the first week back, 30th October 2017 and is on a Wednesday and Friday.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s learning, please pop in and speak to one of us.

Mrs Jacqui Walker and Miss Anna Pearce
