Termly Learning Focus


Dear Parents and Carers,

Term 2 has flown by and we have all been working extremely hard. We have enjoyed ‘The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me’ as our class readers throughout the term and used what we learned from the Roald Dahl to support our learning in Book Talk. In Maths, we worked hard at improving our addition and subtraction and money work with great success.  In Design Technology, children have shown their creativity by designing and creating their own beach mat for a teddy bear. In this topic, children have also learned how to use a running stitch to fix chosen designs to their beach mat.

When we return in Term 3, we will be learning many new things:

In Literacy we will be continuing to use Read Write Inc. and we will use the book called ‘The owl who was afraid of the dark’ to inspire our writing. We will also be writing to inform as we create a set of instructions for making a bird feeder. 

In Maths we will learning to multiply and divide, and we will also use these facts to solve problems. Towards the end of the term we will also start to learn how to record and interpret statistics. 

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:



Art/Design Technology




Everyday Materials

Continents and Oceans

The Beauty of Flowers

Creating Media (Digital Photography)

I Wanna Play in a Band (Glockenspiel Rock)

Real PE

(Static and Dynamic Balance)

How can you help with your child’s learning in school and at home?

Daily reading at home remains an important part of your child’s learning and is essential if your child is to progress across the curriculum. Reading journals must be in school every day so adults can use them to record when they read with the children.

Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will continue to be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week.

P.E will take place on a Monday this term. All children need to wear their PE kits to school on their PE day. This consists of a pair of trainers/plimsolls, a different white t-shirt other than their school t-shirt, dark coloured shorts/jogging bottoms and a jumper. Children with long hair will be expected to tie it up for PE due to health and safety reasons and children with earrings should ensure that they are removed on their PE day. Please note these days may change but you will be given notice.
