All the resources you need for your learning at home can be found on Microsoft Teams. If you are having trouble with this, please contact us at school.
By clicking the header above, you will be taken to any resources which provide revision of our learning from Autumn and Spring terms.

Take a look at our newsletter to see what we'll be getting up to this half term...
Please find this half term's zappers below.
The children can now use Spelling Shed to practise their spellings each week.
Please find their logins in their reading records.
When they log in, they can free play or use the assignments to practise each week's spellings.
As our weekly focus for support at home is daily reading and spelling practice, we have decided to set a home discovery challenge which can be worked on throughout the half term, in place of our weekly ‘bingo board’ homework jobs. You are free to decide with your child what project they would like to work on. Using ideas from our learning listed on the previous page, you can get creative to complete anything you like, as long as it is linked to current learning.
For example, if your child is passionate about science, they might build something from materials and be able to explain why those materials were chosen. Art or DT lovers might create a piece of cityscape art based on London. Do they want to research and make a powerpoint quiz for us all about The Great Fire?
We will be having a ‘Homework Showcase’ in the last week of the half term, so please may we have projects handed in for Monday 24th May? Have fun!

I’d like to reassure you that our school classroom will be a safe, healthy and happy environment for your children. We have undergone lengthy processes and training to ensure the wellbeing of our whole school family.
Stationery - We are able to share equipment in our classroom which can be regularly cleaned but I am sure the children will be very excited to hear that they are now allowed their own pencil case! Each child will be given the necessary equipment and be encouraged to look after it themselves. This must stay in school.
Reading Books - We are now able to send reading books home for the children. The returned books will be quarantined before being sent home again with different children.
Library - Our library day is a Friday. There we will enjoy free time to explore our wonderful array of books and listening to our class story being read. Our first book is ‘The Hodgeheg’. We are working on a 2-week cycle with issuing library books due to having to quarantine our books. So on our first visit to the library, the children will be issued a book. This needs to be returned the following Friday. We will then choose our next library books the following Friday.
Wellies on Wednesdays
This year, we will be taking part in outdoor learning on alternate Wednesdays for the afternoon. This will usually be with Mrs. Fowler when Mrs. Preston has her PPA afternoon. Please may we ask that children have ready every other Wednesday (or left in school if you wish): warm/waterproof trousers to change into, a waterproof coat, which you don’t mind getting muddy, and of course, a pair of wellies! May we politely remind you that all belongings should be named to save on loss of items. If there are other days that we are using the Secret Garden, I can let you know via Twitter.
SATs are the challenge for our Year 2 learners this year. Even though the government are not enforcing that the SATs are carried out this year, we must still aim for the children to reach the standard expected so we can be confident in our assessment of them.
I thought it would be helpful to show you what is expected of the children by the summer term, giving you an insight of the expectations we need to set in school, and at home.
Take a look through these recent SAT papers to see what your little one will be aiming for in the summer.
There is no need to worry about these assessments. The children think of them as 'quizzes' and the scores are only used to support our judgements as teachers. We already know your children inside out so please think of SATs as just a job we need to do to prove that's the case!
