Merry Christmas everyone! - from Year 2

Our Topic this term is 

Mighty Monarchs 

For Spring Term we are all very excited to learn about the English and British monarchy from AD 871 to the present day. In our topic 'Mighty Monarchs' we will use timelines, information about royal palaces, portraits and other historical sources to help us build up an understanding of the monarchs. We will then research six of the most significant sovereigns. 

Explore when each British Monarch ruled.

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do drop into the office to make an appointment to see us, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues

We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

We would like to remind you that all children should have a school PE kit to change into as we will have regular lessons each week.

We encourage all children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.

In Year 2 homework is vitally important for the children, as it helps to reinforce the learning that has gone on during the week.

We urge you to support and encourage your children with their homework and do let us know if the homework is too difficult or indeed too easy! 



In addition all children should continue to read at home, at least five times a week with an adult 

Children should have their homework journal in school everyday.  This will be checked by a school adult every week.
