Year Two

Summer Term 2018


Year 2 – London Calling!

Where has the time gone? Our final term of Year 2 is fast approaching and it will be a busy action filled term so make sure you stay up to date with our upcoming events in the Friday news!

This term, Year 2 will be learning all about London and the historic event that took place on that fateful night in Pudding Lane all those years ago – The Great Fire of London! Children will be given the opportunity to be an eyewitness and report on exactly what happened in Pudding Lane in 1666. Where did the fire start? How did the fire start? Why did the fire start? From their detailed findings, children will have the knowledge to place the events surrounding The Great Fire of London in chronological order on a time line.

Inventively, children will put their creative hand to work and construct a Tudor house out of recyclable materials! Once complete, children will watch Mr Fitzsimons and Miss Howard set alight their house so they can investigate first hand, how fire destroyed and ruined thousands of houses during this historic event!

During the month of May, children will be given the opportunity to show off their knowledge and skills learned from this year when they sit their Mathematics, Reading, Grammar Punctuation and Spelling SATs assessment. All children have worked exceptionally hard this year and should be commended for their efforts!

Once all SATs assessments have been completed, children will be given the opportunity to step in the shoes of a GB athlete! We are fortunate enough to have a GB athlete work closely with our children this term and run them through their training regime. From this, children will attend our Year 2 Frays Academy Trust Olympic event and be inspired to participate in a variety of engaging events to win gold for St Matthews!

June is the month Year 2 has been waiting for all year… We are off to Legoland for a day! What better way to reward all children (and staff) for their hard work this year. This memorable trip will be one to remember for a long time!

We are so proud of each and every child and look forward to celebrating with you at our celebration evening later this term! Please remember if you have any questions or concerns, see Miss Howard or Mr Fitzsimons.
