Our Topic this week is…

Let Me Entertain You!

Week beginning: 16/7/18

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 creating a memory book of the year in Year 2. This book will also contain their memories from home, so if possible, at home could you discuss what activities you have done as a family this year to refresh the children’s memories.


In our Theme lesson this week we shall be having a ‘Big Theme Quiz of the Year’. During the quiz the children will work in teams to answer questions spanning all of our topics this year. Maybe at home you could talk about your child’s favourite memories from these topics.

Games day

On Thursday we are having a games session – if your child would like to come to school with their favourite board or card game to play please bring them into school on Thursday. Please do not send in any electric games (DS, Tablets etc.)

Phase Assembly

Thank you so much to all the parents, family members and friends who made it to our Phase Assembly. The children loved presenting it to you and it was great that we had such a large audience.

Last Day

As you will be aware the children finish school on Friday. Please remember that school will finish at 1:15pm on this day. We would like to wish you all a very happy and safe summer holiday.


Spellings can now be found on the school website (For Pupils, homework tab – KS1 spellings). This week’s words are survival, entertainment, audience and through. The children also need to practise the suffix ‘ing’ when the root word stays the same (jump - jumping). We shall also be recapping contractions (do not - don’t and will not - won’t etc).
