End of Term

Welcome Back Tigers!


I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas celebrating with families and friends where possible, and everyone has manged to keep safe. I know it's been difficult for everyone this year, but hopefully you feel rested and ready for all the fun and learning ahead of us in Term 3! Although we will begin the term learning 'virtually' from a distance, we will still be covering all of the objectives and activities summarised below. For more information, please see the Term 3 Overview document and keep an eye on the 'Home Learning' folder for regular updates! 


Our new topic theme is "We Have a Dream" and this term we will be learning more in depth about Dr. Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, the Suffragette Movement and the Civil Rights Movement. We will approach these topics in a cross-curricular fashion so each subject will link back to this theme in some way. 


In English we will be reading a longer text, 'Inside the Villains', which takes a deeper look at the villains of well known traditional tales, such as the Big Bad Wolf, and offers vivid descriptions of their physical features and personalities. We will focus on creating our own character for a tale, building a character description, and ultimately writing a newspaper report about a chosen villain. The second text we will look into is 'The Lost Happy Endings' whereby the end of unit outcome will be to write our own ending to the story. 


In Maths we will be covering Shape, Measurement, Division and Multiplication, Money, Fractions and Subtraction. As we are now well into the year, we will be focusing more closely on Year 2 objectives, as the children have made huge progress in 'filling the gaps' from Year 1 which were lost to lockdown. 


I have lots of activities planned within our topic, including learning new songs and creating banners, and I'm sure it's a topic we'll all enjoy learning about as it is a theme which is still so relevant in society today. 


As always, if you have any questions or you'd like to get in touch, the best way to contact me is through our Class Dojo, or to send an email to


Take care,

Miss Mitchell and Mrs Selway
