Our School Day


8:45 - 3:15

Children are to be dropped off from Phillips Road and collected from Robinson Street Hall Doors.

Please could parents wait in the correct line to collect children at the end of the day. Please be patient whilst you wait and remember to keep your social distance.


PE days for Holly class will be Wednesday and Thursday and for Maple class they will be Monday and Wednesday. Please send you children into school in thier PE kits on those days.




Your child's wellbeing is our top priority and we will spend time daily allowing children to discuss how they are feeling in a safe environment.  We will be learning about how to stay safe in our local area and the people who help us when we need help.  We will also think about how we show and control our feelings.


Our Topic this half term is:

Our Local Area


In our topic lessons we will look at our local area.  We will learn about significant people that grew up in our area and explore the land uses in Little Harwood. 





We will be writing new  endings for the story of  ‘Tidy’ by Emily Gravett and also persuasive letters linked to the text.




We will spend some time reminding ourselves of what we learned in Year 1 and ensuring that we feel confident with place value if numbers to 50.  We will practise multiplication and division facts for 2s, 5s and 10s. We will continue to practise simple addition and subtraction and number bonds every day during our 'Mad Maths' sessions.  




In science will learn about ‘Living things and their habitats’ with a focus on Local Wildlife.  We will understand how animals adapt to live in their habitats and how they find their food.  We will take part in the ‘Great British Birdwatch’.





Our first focus will be ‘Jesus is Special’.  We will listen to stories about the miracles he performed and how he was a friend to everyone.


We need your support!
