Unit 2 Summer Term 1 Newsletter 2018

Here is an outline of the learning that will be taking place over the next half term:

Learning Experience

We have started our very busy half term by completing our final newspaper articles for London’s Burning. These are being turned into whole class newspapers to be put into our school library. Our Year 2s will complete their SATS in Reading and Maths over the next two weeks and we are already so impressed with their determined attitudes.

Food, Glorious, Food – We will be learning all about instructional writing through the preparation of food. We will start off simply with sandwiches and lead up to baking our own freshly made scones and other baked goods, learning about where the ingredients come from along the way. We will be having our very own market sale at 3.00pm on the KS1 playground on Wednesday 23rd May for you to buy the children’s freshly baked goods.
