Our topic this half-term is...
From A to B
In our Learning Journey, we will be exploring how travel has changed over time and how transport has evolved. On our visit to the Morgan Factory we will be taken on a journey of how a car is made from start to finish and all by hand! Each Morgan is hand crafted using three core elements: ash, aluminium and leather making every Morgan entirely unique. As the company has been passed through the generations the children will see the same craftsmanship skills that were integral during the founding of the Morgan Motor Company in 1909 and are still as alive in 2022.
explore and develop basic gymnastic actions on the floor and using apparatus. They will develop their gymnastic skills of jumping, rolling, balancing and travelling individually and in combination to create short sequences and movement phrases. They will also develop their sending and receiving skills including throwing and catching, rolling, kicking, tracking and stopping a ball.
KS1 SATS Information May 2023
To help inform teacher judgements, pupils in Year 2 will sit national curriculum tests in English and Mathematics, commonly called SATs.
The tests are a tool for teachers to help measure your child’s performance and identify their needs as they move into key stage 2. This also allows teachers to see how your child is performing against national expected standards.
The tests can be taken any time during May and they are not strictly timed.
Please read with your child as often as possible (every day if you can). Research shows that children who read at home make better progress with their reading generally.
The National Literacy Trust which suggested that young people who read outside class were 13 times more likely to read above the expected level for their age.
It also follows a study from London's Institute of Education which suggested that children who read for pleasure are likely to be better at both Maths and English than those who rarely read in their free time. Please encourage your child to bring their reading bag to school every day.
