Welcome to year 2!
This term our topic is 'Fire Fire!'. It is a history based topic focusing on the Great Fire of London. We will be looking at how the fire started, why it spread and why it lasted so long. We will also be looking at the impact of the fire.
Our story this term is the folk tale 'How Rabbit Stole the Fire'. We will be using Talk for Writing to imitate, innovate and invent a new wishing story.
In Creative Arts we will be using pencils, oil pastels and charcoal to make pictures of the Great Fire of London. We will also be building our own Tudor houses to recreate the old City of London.
In P.E. our focus will be Dance on Tuesday (inside) and team games on Wednesday (outside) each week. Children must have a change of clothes e.g. shorts/leggings, t-shirt and trainers.
Children will be given reading homework each Friday. Class activities will be based on this text the following week so it is helpful to the children if they are familiar with it.
As part of their homework children must read at home. Please sign their Red Bus Club record when they have read to you. Children should bring their reading book back to school regularly so their book can be changed.
