ST PAUL'S YEAR 2Welcome back to school

It’s the Summer Term already! We are looking forward to another fun-filled term with the added bonus of some sunshine (hopefully!)

REFRESHED AND READY TOLearn about more exciting topics

For the 1st half term, we have a History topic called ‘Going into the Unknown – is it brave or reckless?’ We will be learning about three great explorers: Christopher Columbus, Robert Scott and Neil Armstrong. Where did they explore? What did they discover? What impact did they have on the world they lived in and beyond? We will find out by exploring different sources of information.
In Science, we will be learning all about plants and what they need to grow and stay healthy. We will plant different seeds and bulbs and observe them as they grow in different conditions.
In R.E., we will be learning about Buddhism. We will focus on the life of the Buddha and what we can learn from his life.
PSHE lessons will be taught using ‘Jigsaw’ and will be all about relationships. This will include family relationships, as well as friendships, and explore how our relationships are special and how we can maintain them in positive ways.
In English and Maths, we will be revisiting and embedding the basic skills to make sure that we are ready to move into year 3 in September. In English, we will be improving our reading and writing skills using two amazing stories, Beauty and the Beast and The Tear Thief, and a poem, Silver by Walter de la Mare.
We will continue to deliver PE using Real PE and Music using Charanga.

YEAR 2Autumn term

Throughout the Spring Term, we will also continue to follow ‘Real PE’ in our PE lessons and ‘Charanga’ in Music lessons. We will also introduce the Read Write Inc Spelling programme to the majority of year 2 pupils who successfully passed the Phonics Screening Check in December.

WELLBEINGChildren's Mental Health Week

Now more than ever we need to be looking after our mental health! 1st -7th February was Children's Mental Health Week. We got involved to mark the occasion and to raise money for the charity Place2Be who focus on improving children's mental health.

The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week was Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

Check out how we have expressed ourselves this week!
