Welcome to the start of a new term. Our main theme this term is ‘Florence Nightingale’. Please find the curriculum map attached with the key areas we will be working on.
Just a reminder that Year 2 have PE on Tuesday. We will be outside for PE for part of the afternoon, so please provide warm clothing as necessary. As an extra for this term, Year 2 will also have Rugby Tots on a Thursday.
Please find attached the home learning grid for this term. There are some key skills we would like the children to focus on – times table facts and spelling of the Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words. The remaining activities should be child led and should give the children the opportunity to be creative.
