STUDENT TEACHER: MR DEANE
We hope you had an enjoyable half term holiday and are ready for a fun-filled, action-packed Term 6!
We are incredibly excited to be starting Term 6 and to be continuing with our topic Inspiring Individuals!
Throughout the summer term we will be exploring the lives of significant individuals who have contributed to national and international achievements. We will start by focusing on Vincent Van Gogh and William Morris. Later in the term, we will be organising our very own St Mary's bake-off and looking at the life of Nadiya Hussain.
We will start the term with a focus text entitled 'The magic paintbrush' by Liz Miles. Ho, (the main character in the book) is given a golden paintbrush in return for his kindness to an old man. Magic things begin to happen when Ho starts to paint ... The book is beautifully illustrated by Meilo and we are sure it will capture the children's imagination!
In Maths, we will be continuing to work on consolidating our understanding of the four operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as well as additional work on position and direction, fractions and measurement . We will use our knowledge and understanding to help us reason and solve mathematical problems.
We have been really impressed with the children's enthusiasm for learning their times tables. Please continue to login to Times Table Rockstars at home.
We are continuing to help your child develop their reading skills at school, hearing them read individually at least twice a week. It would be incredibly beneficial for your child if they are heard to read daily at home.
Please remember to record any home reading, along with any comments in their individual reading records.
DON'T FORGET! If your child has 5 pages completed by the end of term they will receive recognition in our celebration assembly as well as a certificate, badge or bookmark at the end of term!

PE lessons for Year 2 are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure the children have their full, labelled PE kits for these days.
We would be grateful if you could take the time to talk with your child about the above themes, and encourage them to research further by questioning friends and relatives or using books/internet.
