Our Topic this week is…

Around the World in 80 Bricks

Week beginning: 21/5/18

Here are some areas we shall be looking at in class this week that you could try at home...


In English this week we will be looking at different sentences – statements, commands, questions and exclamations. At home you could get your child to write a different sentence for each sentence type about their favourite activity, programme or game.


In our theme lesson for Around the World in 80 Bricks this week we will be creating fact files for what we have learnt about the world and the different continents. If your child has completed any research about the continents please send it into school.

Farm Trip

On Tuesday 2LM will be visiting Collingshanger Farm and on Wednesday 2VC will be visiting Collingshanger Farm. Please can the children come in with school T-Shirts but they can wear shorts or home clothes on the bottom.

Race for Layla

Race for Layla is on Friday morning! The children can come to school wearing sports kit for the day. This does not have to be PE but they need to be dressed in a kit they can run in. If you would like to support Race for Layla please head to the field after you have dropped your child off. We will meet you on the field.


Spellings can now be found on the school website (For Pupils, homework tab – KS1 spellings). This week’s words are explorer, there, their and world The children also need to practise the suffix ‘ful’ and ‘ness’ when ‘y’ becomes ‘i’ (beauty – beautiful, happy – happiness). How many ‘ied or ‘ier words can your child think off?
