We had a great time making rockets. The children were very sensible and helped each other out. This was in connection with our book 'Beegu' and was part of the design technology curriculum.
Hawthorn enjoyed a minibeast hunt as part of their science topic on 'habitats'

Prue has just started learning to play the cello. I'm going to look forward to hearing her grow as a musician and make progress.

Friday 27th November


It's Friday again !!!smiley

We had a lovely afternoon decorating the school Christmas tree today. It looks beautiful. I'm sure the Christmas fairies will soon be busy decorating your homes.

We managed to complete the phonic screening today as well. All the children have done brilliantly and you should be really proud. So you will be glad to know I will stop sending the phonic sheets out.

A few children have asked for a class list to send Christmas cards. This will be given out on Monday. However, the children can only bring their cards in from Monday 7th December . They will then have to be in school for 72 hours before we give them out. (probably the week after) It is very strange times we are living in. 

A quick reminder your child will need a cardboard egg box for the last week of term . We are aiming to make Egg Box Dragons.


Have a lovely weekend ,

See you on Monday.

  • To develop creative responses to the text through responding to reading, drama and artwork.
  • To write in role in order to explore and develop empathy for a character.
  • To write with confidence for real purposes and audiences

Y2 Curriculum



Please see the curriculum overviews in the relevant term below for details of what we are doing in the curriculum. The weekly spelling words can also be found there. There are ten spellings each week. Ms

Smart will increase the spellings to fifteen  when we have settled in. Please help and support your child in learning these words throughout the year.  Spellings will be given on a Wednesday to be tested on the following Wednesday.



Spellings will be part of the homework .

Other homework will be set on a Friday to be handed in on a Monday. This is likely to be maths or english but may also be other areas of the curriculum history research or even art 



Once established in Hawthorn class your child will receive a home reader. Please encourage your child to read to an adult for 5 minutes each day.  They will be given at least one reading day in school but we encourage each child to change their book when it has been completed. Please ensure their reading record is signed then we can facilitate this.



PE will be on a Monday and Tuesday . Please send in a PE kit which we will keep in school and send home each holiday. Please make sure all items are named.
