Hello everyone. I hope you have all had a lovely summer and are enjoying your new start in Year 2.

This half term we are going to be learning about the Great Fire of London. We will gather information about the fire and about Samuel Pepys, who wrote diaries telling us all about it. Next, using the computers, we are going to write our own short books about the fire.

We will study the geography of the United Kingdom: the 4 countries, their capital cities and surrounding seas.

After designing our own dragons we will use noun phrases to describe them, always trying hard to work neatly and remember our punctuation.

The Chosen People will be our first R.E. topic - learning about people such as Moses and Abraham, who were chosen by God to do a special job for Him.

Maths this half-term will focus and recap on Place Value. We will also begin work on addition before the holidays.

Homework, wherever possible, will be sent to you via Seesaw or Purple Mash.

P.E. kits and pumps need to be in school for our P.E. lessons on Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon.

Children should bring a water bottle to school every day as our water fountains are currently out of use.

Thank you for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any problems or concerns.

Mrs Cox   :))
