Week Beginning 19th March 2018

Just when we thought the weather was improving another blast of cold and snowy weather.

In English we are continuing with our text ‘Goldilocks and The One Bear.’ We will be drawing a map and writing about Bear’s journey home before starting to plan our own story using the same format.

As Mathematicians we are starting to look at Fractions. At Y2 pupils are expected to

  • recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/3 , 1/4 , 2/3 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity

  • write simple fractions for example, 21 of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2 .

Don’t forget this resource too to help with learning number facts/timetables etc.

As Scientists we will are continuing to investigate how humans and other animals are born, grow and change, and what we need to survive and be health.

Our handwriting focus is on the tall and tails group of letters – d h b l t k and f g y j p qu

In phonics/spelling the focus is on learning to spell and understand the use of contractions and words ending in ‘tion’ . We are also continuing to reinforce Long Vowel words, learning to use a GPC and spelling tricky words.


In RE our unit of work continues to be the Christian Concept: Forgiveness, prayer and sin. The key question is How does prayer help Christians start again? We will also start preparing for the Easter Service.

Reading Books
The children are welcome to change their reading book as often as they like but I would ask that you sign the reading record book when they have completed a book at home with you.

Miss Porter and I each half term will continue to assess all the children’s reading again using our benchmarking system. Please bear with us as it does take time but is a thorough assessment of the level the children are reading at.

Our PE days are Monday am (Ms Charlesworth) and Wednesday am (Sports’ Coaches)
