Please make sure children's school uniform and PE kits are named in a permanent way. It's tricky to find and return uniform where a child's name is wearing out etc!
A Pirate's Life for Me!
Welcome to Year 2
In our topic ‘A Pirate’s Life for Me’ we will be learning more about how Pirates lived; pirate songs; materials and using our learning about materials to design and make our own model Pirate ships!
We will be talking about...
What is a Pirate?
How did Pirates live?
Who is the most fearsome, grisly and gruesome Pirate?
How can I use what I have learned about Pirates to create different pieces of interesting writing?
Did pirates really make people walk the plank?
Did many pirates bury their treasure?
What weapons did they use?
How can I use what I know about materials to design and make my own model Pirate ship?
How can I use my agility to complete an athletic challenge?
How can I be an effective member of a team?
The children write their new spellings into their A5 red and white Read Write Inc spelling books every Monday. We have spelling quizzes on Fridays. It's super important that children practise these at home! These spelling books need to be in school every Monday.
New Literacy or Numeracy homework goes out on Fridays in the A4 orange homework book. Homework needs to be handed in on Wednesday at the latest every week. Homework books need to be handed in on time so they can be marked and new homework given.
See the 'Helpful Documents' section further down this page for more useful information and resources.
