Monkeys Planning for week beginning 19 March

For the final week of term we will be concluding our learning about traditional tales and taking part in lots of fun Easter activities. In key worker groups the children will be matching characters to the traditional tale and describing the characters. The children will be listening to a simple version of the Easter story. In phonics we will be continuing to develop our awareness of sounds by listening to, and imitating sounds using instruments. Our focus in maths will be on number recognition and counting 1-1, especially when the children are hunting for eggs! They will take part in Easter art activities, including making egg sun catchers and printing on egg shapes using pom poms. We will be making Easter nests and investigating the changing state of the chocolate.

On Friday we will be taking part in our traditional Easter activity, egg rolling. Please can the children bring in a decorated hard-boiled egg for us to roll down a hill. Thanks

Wishing you all a lovely Easter and a relaxing break.

Year 2 Planning for week beginning 12 March

In English this week the children will continue to explore descriptive language. They will complete their written descriptions of Prospero's Island from Shakespeare's Tempest.

In Maths this week we will be recapping addition and subtraction methods and solving worded problems. We will also be practising our mental arithmetic. Many children have required support to rapidly recall double and half number facts. It would be helpful if you could spend a little time practising these with your children.

Towards the end of the week in our history lesson we will be discussing what we learned from our trip to Warwick Castle and linking this to our previous learning in History.


Please don't forget our trip to Warwick Castle on Tuesday 20th March.

Children can arrive at school from 8:00am and must be no later than 8:15.

We will return to school at 4:00pm. You do not need to provide a packed lunch. Sensible shoes and coats are essential as we will be outdoors regardless of the weather. Children should wear school uniform. If your child suffers from travel sickness, please prepare them for the journey. Please don't forget if you haven't paid and returned a signed permission slip, we would appreciate you doing so as soon as possible.
