Our new IPC topic is:
All Dressed Up
What are clothes? Have you ever seen an elephant in a dress? Or a giraffe in a pair of jeans? Of course not, because unlike animals, only human beings wear clothes. Clothes are an important part of our lives.
They can keep us warm or cool. We can wear different colours and designs and change them for different occasions, we can follow the latest fashions – and even make them ourselves! So what do the clothes you wear say about you?
Our Science topic for this half-term is
Please remember to practise reading with an adult every evening and to bring your reading books and reading record books into school every day. You never know when we will be able to squeeze in an extra reading session!
You also need to bring your spelling book every Monday, to write your new spelling words down.
And don't forget your spelling test on Fridays.
You need to learn your words: Look, Cover, Write, Check!
Homework is given out on Fridays and is due in on Wednesdays. If there are any problems with understanding the homework please see the class teacher on Mondays.
Children need to bring the correct kit for PE: a white top and blue or black shorts with plimsolls or trainers.
Kit should be brought to school each Monday and taken home on a Friday to be washed.
Please continue to practise counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s when you have a spare moment at home. Parents and carers can help the children to understand money and practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, by giving them the opportunity to count up your loose change!
It will also be very helpful to practise telling the time at home, both on analogue and digital clocks. The children will need to know how to tell the time in five minute intervals by the end of the year, for example, 5 past 4, or 4:05.
Have you seen the Kids' Zone? Play games, and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites! And don't forget Purple Mash - lots of fun activities to keep you busy!
Don't forget to log onto Reading Egg to read lots of exciting books and to play games to help you with your reading and writing.
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let us know!

The children have been given a Maths revision booklet. Can you please go through the booklet and practise anything that you are unsure about.
Please see attachment below.
Please continue to learn the lines you have been given for our class plays and the words of all the songs.
Year 2 had a wonderful time learning about fire safety.
We learnt how to follow a fire plan:
1. Practise your fire alarm whenever you can.
2. When you hear the alarm get out quick, safe from harm.
3. Touch the door, so you're sure.
4. On the way out, give everyone a shout.
5. Close the door for 20 minutes more.
6. Crawl under the smoke, so you don't choke.
7. Don't hide, go outside.
8. Call 999 - you will be fine.
