Dormice (Year 2 AS)


Welcome back, Dormice!

Welcome back, Dormice! I hope you and all of your families have had a restful Easter break and are ready to get back learning!

Our Summer 1 topic is 'Historic Heroes'. We will be reading Traction Man by Mini Grey and our writing will . In Maths, we will focus on the topics: Measurement: Length and Height and Geometry: Position and Direction, and continue to practice and embed number fluency such as: number bonds and times tables. In Topic, this half-term will include opportunities in Science to learn about various materials to help with the construction of our own bridge in D&T, based on the learning of Isambard Brunel in History. In RE, we will explore the question: 'Can stories change people?' based on the Jewish faith. 

This half-term is still very much about consolidating our previous learning and making sure the children's health and wellbeing is of paramount importance. Therefore, we may still revisit many areas of the Year 1 and 2 curriculum, as part of our Phoenix curriculum, to make sure we are all 'Stronger, Smarter and More Powerful' in our life and learning.
