Week Beginning 8th January 2018

Happy New Year! We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas break and look forward to welcoming you back. We begin our new topics of ' The Great fire of London' in the first half term and 'Africa' in the 2nd half of this term. The new topic web and homework grid are available below.


This week in Maths we will be looking at division, and methods to solve division problems and calculations. Our English is linked to Topic this term - we will be looking at 'The Great Fire of London. This week will focus on Learning about the events leading up to the fire, why it spread and people involved. We are lucky enough to have a theatre company visiting us on Wednesday, where we will find out more about the fire and life long ago.


PE continues to be on Tuesdays and Thursdays - children will come home in their kits.

Links to support home learning


There are so many different games to support a wide variety of Maths topics on this website, click and explore.


We often use games from this BBC website in our mental starters or plenaries.


Another good site which covers all Maths topics is this one from Top Marks, this has games and interactive resources and a helpful parents section. You can also choose games by age so can challenge your child accordingly.


Don't forget to go on Mathletics, if you need a reminder of your child's login details just let us know.



If you want to support your child with their phonics and spelling, there are some great games and resources here, including an interactive dictionary.


This link suggests 10 fun ways to help your child learn their spellings, especially useful if the 'look, say, cover, write, check' method does not suit your child's learning style.


This website enables you to choose a Year 2 National Curriculum learning objective from a list, this will then take you to a game or activity to complete. It really is a great site particularly if you are unsure about a piece of homework or the terminology used. It does the same for Maths also with over 200 to choose from!



Please see this list of 50 things to do before you're 11 and 3/4s from the National Trust! Children learn so much from hands on learning, being outdoors, questioning 'how' and 'why'things happen and spending quality time with those around them.Take a look at the list, how many did you do by that age?!
