Welcome back!


I hope you have all had a wonderful Summer break and are ready and rested for Year 2.

Meanwhile, lots of things have been happening behind the scenes at school to ensure that another fantastic year of learning, excitement and new experiences await the children.

Our history centred topic for this half term is the Great Fire of London. However, we will start the term by looking at 'twisted' fairy tales in English as part of a whole school writing project. Look out for the results of this in our entrance hall as the term progresses. Blackbirds will be looking at the story of The Three Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, a different slant on the traditional tale of the Three Little Pigs. From this the children will be retelling the story and then writing instructions. Our science focus of materials will link in with the text and also the 1666 houses of London. 

 To keep up to date with what is happening in class, make sure you regularly check our school Twitter feed. 


Please try to read as often as possible at home, ideally at least 5 times a week, as it really makes such a difference to your child's development. Talk about the book to build comprehension skills and record it in the reading diary.

Please ensure that your child brings their reading book and diary to school every day.


I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming meet the teacher evening on 11th September. It is vitally important that this session is attended as homework, use of reading diaries, curriculum and school routines will be detailed. Should you have any other queries please feel free to email me using the address at the top of the page or speak to me in person at the end of the school day.


 Here's to an exciting year in Blackbirds!
