What an exciting term we have in store for you all!
Here is the curriculum map for Term 2 and the KIRFs.
We would really appreciate it if you could practise the KIRFs as often as you can with your child, so they are embedded and the children become fluent in them.
The children will continue to come home with their reading book – which they should be reading at least 4 times a week – and spellings. In addition to this, the children will be set Learning with Parents sessions every fortnight which will help to consolidate the learning they have been doing in class.
One of our PE units has been dance and the children have created their own dance routines. They looked at the shapes, levels and pace of their dance moves. Lots of great teamwork was shown during these lessons.
This term we have been focusing on structures and used our History topic ‘The Great Fire of London’ to re-create our own Great Fire of London houses. The children spent time learning about which shapes would be best and how to make them stronger before designing, creating, adapting and painting their houses.
This term we have been busy learning about The Great Fire of London and have spent the last couple of weeks focusing on newspaper reports.
To help us with this writing we used a range of drama activities to support our imaginations and understanding of the events.
Over the course of the term, year 2 have been working hard on their place value understanding. They have used a ranged of manipulatives to support their learning and are beginning to develop their reasoning skills.
It was has been a brilliant start to the academic year with lots of exciting learning.
Here is our curriculum map and KIRFs to show you what the children have been busy learning about so far this term.

Year 2 were able to go over to the Marsh Academy to participate in the infant games. They spent the day there and got to experience 5 different sports; Squash, American football, Martial arts, Cricket and Golf. All the children enjoyed competing in their teams and loved their new infant games t-shirt that they got to wear and keep.
KS1 had a fantastic sports day. They completed a carousel of activities in their teams with the help of the year 6s before competing in their individual races.
We have reached the final term of the academic year.
Lots of exciting things will also be taking place:
Trip to Rochester castle
Creating our own campfire
Meet our year 3 teacher
Making our own wraps linked to the lighthouse keeper’s lunch.
Please find attached our curriculum overview for this term as well as our KIRFs for Maths.
Towards the end of term 5, we had an arts week, with a focus around the Platinum Jubilee. We had to learn a song from during the Queen’s reign and then were challenged to use our DT skills to design and create a castle fit for a queen. The children worked hard on all of these events.
To end the end we then had a Jubilee picnic and party on the playground and field. We also showcased our DT work for all our parents to see.
