Reading : We are concentrating on using our comprehension skills (VIPERS -Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval and Sequencing) using different text types. 


English : We will be learning to write very important letters to Santa using all the skills we have learnt so far in Year 2.  

Science : We have been learning  how animal and humans grow and change.  

Topic : Learning about festivals and celebrations. We have been very interested in new life when exploring baptism ceremonies. We will also be doing some painting inspired by winter settings.

We have a new reading reward chart. Children can move up the ladder for everyday that they read during the week (this must be recorded in your child's reading record). Once children reach the top of the castle they will recieve a certificate and be entered into a prize draw at the end of every half term 

Maths - After several parents' requests we are now sending optional maths homework on Fridays.

This is based on what we have been learning that week and is intended to support children in their confidence with the maths.

Please keep using Times tables Rockstars to practise times tables facts .

Please lease visit our Key instant recall facts page here.
