Year 2 Newsletter Summer 2, 2018


Home Reading

We want to continue to encourage all our children to enjoy and engage with books and reading and we ask you to support this process through our Home Reading Scheme. Children have the opportunity to use books from school OR home and their progress needs to be recorded in their Home Reading Record Book. The reading record will be monitored in school each week so we will need Reading Record Books to be returned to school every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.



We have P.E. on Tuesdays and for the school P.E. kit children should have a white T-shirt, black/navy shorts and a pair of pumps (football kits are not allowed). Trainers can also be included for outdoor sports. Please make sure that PE kits are in a bag and all items are clearly named. (Just a reminder that our school policy clearly states no jewellery, for safety reasons).



Our Creative Curriculum topic for the second half of the Summer Term is ‘The Great Fire of London. We will be exploring the events that took place leading up the fire including the nasty spread of The Plague. We will use the Wild Garden to sit around a campfire and toast marshmallows.

In literacy, we will be looking at diary entries to record what it would have been like to experience the tragic events first hand! We will also explore drama activities and role play to get in the mindset to write a newspaper report all about it as well.



In Year 2 the children are invited to create their own sketches of London burning in 1666 or complete a research project all about the Great Fire of London and The Plague.
