It was lovely to see all of class 2 settle back into this half-term and hear about what they had been up to in the holidays. Thanks also to everyone who sent photos in on Seesaw. We were able to see the sights of London, the animals at Cannon Hall farm, the exhibits of the museums in Hull and also a fantastic Lego model that has been made.

This week the children have participated in an assembly workshop and follow-up activities delivered by the NSPCC. They even got to meet the NSPCC toy speech bubble mascot Buddy, who they all loved. The children were really engaged in carrying out this work and had such a sensible attitude when learning about how children can be harmed. They are now much better informed to ‘Speak Out Stay Safe‘ if they have any concerns and have nominated trusted adults in and out of school that they would be comfortable talking to. They are very excited that we are going to try our some of the online activities on the Childline website as part of out computing lesson next week. The link for this was posted on Seesaw earlier this week in case you would like to visit this site together at home but here’s a reminder of the web address

We have also started a new narrative unit in English based on the traditional story of The Three Little Pigs. The children will be reading and discussing lots of different versions of this before starting to write their own version such as The Three Little Badgers and the Big Bad Fox or maybe the Three Little Hippos and the Big Bad Lion! We can’t wait to see what they come up with. The Three Little Pigs theme was continued through to our work on materials in science as they children considered which material would be most suited to building a house and why.


This week the children continued their good run with 80% of them completing three reads or more. Many of the children have changed their reading books this week and we are getting lots of great feedback about the books in our class library. Please continue to read as much as possible at home, to help develop the children’s reading fluency!


Linked to our English work, every pupil will bring home a copy of a Three Little Pigs reading comprehension in their bookbags today. Please support your child in completing this but try to allow them as much independence as possible. Perhaps you could share the story together and then let your child answer as many questions as they can on their own. All pupils do need to attempt this homework as we are working on building our reading comprehension skills as we progress through the year. Homework should be returned and placed in the homework tray in the classroom by Monday March 4th, thank-you.


This week’s spelling rule focuses on the possessive apostrophe.


In last week’s newsletter, a request went out to parents asking for reading volunteers. If you have a few hours available at any point during the week and you would like to come into school to read with our children, please just let the office know your availability. Many Thanks!
