Update for Week beginning: 20.5.19

There are no spellings this week!

SATs Information

Thank you to all those who attended the SATs information meeting before Easter. Here is the link to the KS1 SATs practice papers should you wish to go through any with your child at home.

Maths and English Information:

In maths this week we will be revising a range of mathematical concepts including: problem solving, money, fractions and solving 2-digit addition and subtraction calculations (e.g. 12 + 24 =   32 – 15 =)

In English this week we will be looking at diary writing by focussing on the diary of Samuel Pepys. We will use this understanding to write our own diary entries from the perspective of someone who lived through the Great Fire of London.

Other curriculum news:  

Treehouse Theatre

What a fantastic time we had with Treehouse Theatre! Year 2 loved getting into character as people who lived through the Great Fire of London. They enjoyed experiencing first-hand what these times were like and how they may feel if they were going through this experience.

PE: Indoor PE will now be back to a Monday morning and outdoor games will be on a Thursday afternoon (this half term only). Please remind your child to bring in a named water bottle, daily, particularly on days where we have PE.

Times tables: Your child has been given a log in for Times Tables Rockstars, which is a program where they can practise their times tables in a fun, engaging way. Please visit to log in and use the login details which have been stuck in your child’s home/school book.

General Information: It’s great to see so many of the Year 2 children join Mrs Jacobs on a Friday lunchtime in the library for Book Club. Please remember to return your library book on a Friday if you wish to choose a new one.

Please can you make sure that all items belonging to your child are clearly labelled so that they can be returned easily should they go missing.

Finally please ensure your child has their Academy Home Diary in school every day.
