Our School Day


8:45 - 3:15

Children are to be dropped off and collected from Phillips Road.

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 both classes will be Tuesday and Thursday.  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.  Children will not be pressured to talk if they don't want to but giving time to discuss how they feel about the lockdown and return to school means that the transition back to learning will be smoother.

In our PSHE topic this term we will talk about the need for rules and why they are important.  We will discuss how we should treat each other with respect.


Our Topic this half term is:

The Great Fire of London

We will learn about how the fire started and what caused it to spread so quickly.  We will think about how the fire was finally put out and consider how we know so much about an event that happened so long ago.


We will link our work on the Great Fire to other subjects in the curriculum.




‘The Fire Children’ – children will use Talk 4 Writing to write a traditional story about how the world was created.  We will use the information we have learned about the Great Fire of London to write an information 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 continue to practise simple addition and subtraction and number bonds every day during our 'Mad Maths' sessions.  



Our science work this term will focus on 'Materials'.  We will sort different materials based on their properties and whether we can change their shape.  We will have fun exploring the school for different materials and their uses.



Our RE topic is 'The Bible'.  We will think about how the Bible is split in to parts and explore the stories that we will find in each.  We will learn about how the Bible is important to many people and the lengths they will go to have their own.
