This week our P4C question is….

Why does Vashti not believe that she is creative?


What we are up to this term. 

We have a very busy first term in Year 2.

The new value for the term is CREATIVITY, this is one of the new values chosen by the children in last years parliament. The children will have weekly P4C sessions that are linked to creativity and various other topics. The aim will be to develop their ability to ask and respond to questions in ever-growing detail.

All Information about this half term’s teaching will be contained within the Curriculum Web, which is attached to this page via the link below.

Reading records can be brought back in daily or weekly with homework. The aim is to read at least 5 times a week. When we have the reading records in we will collate how much the children have read and if they read 5 times a week for 3 weeks there will be a small prize given. They are of course encouraged to read as much as possible.


Please, can children bring a pair of indoor shoes in school.  As the weather will inevitably change at some and it will really help keep the KS1 building clean and looking tidy.
