Dormice (Year 2 AS)


Welcome back, Dormice!

I hope you have a fantastic Christmas break and a very happy New Year! Our Spring term topic is ‘Fire! Fire!' based on The Great Fire of London. We will be reading and writing diaries based upon Samuel Pepys’ as well as investigating all the events of the 1666 fire in History alongside what life was during the period compared to 2020. In Maths, we will be continuing to look at column addition and subtraction as well as money, multiplication and fractions. Our topic will allow us to conduct scientific investigations regarding materials and heat, plus investigating materials and their suitability, such as how waterproof different materials are. This will feed into our D&T projects as we create products, items and houses. In RE we will explore the question: Why does Easter matter to Christians?
