Miss Eastmond and Mrs Basterfield support the children with their learning.

General Information

Miss Beaman will teach P.E. every Friday. Wherever possible, this will be outside. In order to be prepared, P.E. kit (consisting of white t-shirt, navy blue shorts and suitable footwear that children can fasten themselves) should be in school every day. Warm top/tracksuit bottoms (navy) would also be advisable for the coming term.


Miss Jenkins will teach Forest School on Monday afternoons. A letter will be sent to advise on suitable clothing. 

Spring Term 2021

Oceans and Seas


In Lapwing Class this term, the children will build their knowledge of oceans and seas around the world. They will begin to understand the different environments these represent and how they affect life on land as well as at sea. They will develop their geographical skills and build up their knowledge of food chains, exploration, and evolution.




During the Spring Term, the children will be using their Talk for Writing Skills to learn the story of The Secret of Black Rock. Children will become immersed in the book and complete an explanation text on how to make our oceans a better habitat for wildlife.


Times tables

Alongside our daily maths sessions, children will be continuing to learn their times tables. In Year 2, children will recap their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. The three times table will be introduced later in the year. This will be in the form of chanting whilst following written multiplication number sentences: 

1x3=3 ("one lot of three is three")

2x3=6 ("two lots of three are six")


12x3=36 ("twelve lots of three are thirty-six")



At the beginning of each half term, children in Year 2 will be given a homework grid. They need to complete at least TWO activities from the grid over the course of the half term. Written work must be presented neatly in their homework books. Creative work can be presented in any way. Homework will be discussed on Fridays, but it will not be necessary to bring in the work until the date on the sheet. 


Children will also need to complete weekly spellings and Mathletics activities.
