Welcome to Year 2
Our topic throughout the Autumn term is The Great Fire of London.
During topic lessons, the children will learn about how the fire started. They will find out why the fire spread so quickly, how London has changed since 1666 and significant people during this time.

We hope you have all had a lovely summer break and are ready for the return to school. As you can imagine, we have some new systems in place to keep us all safe whilst at school.
Start and finish times
8:50am – 3:00 pm
Please do not arrive earlier than this time (unless arriving with younger siblings).
We will be having PE outside on a Monday and Wednesday and the children need to come into school wearing their PE kit on these days. They do not need to bring uniform to change into. Please make sure your child is appropriate dressed e.g. warm tracksuit or sweatshirt.
The children will be set weekly My Maths, spellings and reading homework. In addition to this, each term the children will receive topic based Nandos challenges. This homework is optional and does not need to be completed every week. You will find login details for My Maths in their homework folders.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday and must be returned for marking by the following Wednesday. Please note that if homework is handed in at a later date, it will not be marked.
Children will be sent home with two reading books on a Monday. They will keep these books for the week and then get two new books the following Monday. To encourage fluency, we suggest that children read their school books several times at home before changing them. The children have also got access to lots of online books to read at home on www.fictionexpress.co.uk. Their login details are stuck in the front page of their diary, along with information for TT rockstars.
The children in KS1 receive a healthy snack in the morning.
We are grateful for the £1 voluntary donations to put towards additional healthy snacks for afternoon break, cooking ingredients and any other creative resources. It would be helpful if this could be placed in a sealed envelope given the current situation.
