Curriculum newsletter- Autumn 1

Current Topic: 

Our current topic is dinosaurs! We are really looking forward to  exploring and learning all about life as a dinosaur and the many types of species of dinosaurs that once roamed Earth! 

Reading:

 

We are currently reading lots of dinosaur themed books. The book we are reading in Literacy is 'How to grow a dinosaur' which is about a little boy who plants magic beans in his back garden and grows lots of dinosaurs. 

 

We will also be reading 'The Christmasaurus' by Tom Fletcher for pleasure leading up to Christmas. This is a story about a boy called William and a dinosaur named The Christmasaurus. It's all about how they meet on Christmas Eve and have a magical adventure together. We can't wait to read these fantastic books!


 

Reading books

 

Children need a reading book in school each day, they are also expected to read at home every day in order to improve fluency and accuracy. Books are closely matched to their reading ability and will be changed as they improve and can answer comprehension questions about the text.

 

P.E 

PE Day is Wednesday - please make sure you bring the correct kit (white top, dark shorts and indoor shoes in the Winter term). Please make sure any earrings can be removed or are not worn on PE days. I recommend children bring their P.E kits to school on Monday, leave it at school and take it home Friday to be washed.

 

School uniform

We pride ourselves on the appearance of our children. Please help us to maintain this by ensuring all children attend in the correct uniform, including school shoes. 

Here are the 200 High Frequency words for Year Two, children must be able to read spell all 200 words by the end of the year. See if you can read and spell them all 200 words!
