We hope you all had a wonderful Easter holiday and the children are feeling refreshed and ready for the summer term.
Our topic this term is ‘Towns and Cities.’ We will be introducing the children to geographical language and basic map reading. The children will be comparing and contrasting settlements and we will be looking and labelling the UK.
In English, the children will be writing information texts. We will be creating poems based on life as a city cat and life as a village cat.
The children will also be generating a book review. We will be learning to join our writing correctly too.
In Maths, we will be focusing on fractions of numbers, quartering and halving numbers.
In Science, our theme is animals, including humans. We will be talking about animals having offspring which grow into adults.
Forest school will begin for the Owls so please ensure correct clothing and wellies are in school every Thursday for the next 4 weeks.
We are excited to have some session from Yokids (yoga). These will take place for year 2 on Wednesdays.
Our parent interviews will take place after school on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th April, please sign up outside the classroom if you would like to see Mrs Henderson and Mr Stewart.

In January 2016, we decided as a school to become a Values Based School.
Like increasing numbers of schools across the country, we felt the need to reassess our approach to learning and introduce a values-based approach not only into the curriculum but also into every aspect of daily school life.
To this end we consulted with the whole of our school community and chose 22 values which are rooted in fundamental British Values of Democracy, The rule of law, Individual liberty, Mutual respect and Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.
