General Reminders


  • Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. We encourage children to practise getting dressed at home to help them get changed quickly in school!
  • Any letters or reply slips, which need to be returned, can be put in your child’s book bag. The children are encouraged to check them each morning and give things in after the register.
  • The children will be given their own water bottle to keep in class which they can access throughout the day and they will change their water regularly.



This term's topic is Kings and Queens



This term we will be reading the story:


Over the term could you research and find out the following answers to our key questions?

What is a monarchy? What is the role of a monarchy? Can you name any British  Kings and Queens? What rules would you create if you were a King or Queen for a day?


In English, we will be reading the text ‘Zog’ by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, to inspire and motivate children to write their own stories and create their own dragon character. The children will also be writing different versions of the story and writing reports about dragons. Our focus will be ensuring that children are spelling Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words.

How can you help at home?

You can practise reading and spelling the Year 1 and Year 2 Common Exception Words (see below).


In Maths this term, we are continuing to learn about multiplication and division and solving problems followed by statistics and properties of shape. We will also be ensuring children recognise and know the difference between the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division symbols. We will learn about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Please continue to use the Time Tables rock stars at home to help your child to understand all aspects of our Maths learning.
