Meerkat Mail

Happy New Year !

This term our topic is Meerkat Mail. It is based on the book by Emily Gravett. We will be following the adventures of Sunny and his family. Through this book and the book Poles Apart we will be looking at the different continents and oceans that make up the World. We will be exploring what life is like in each continent and what sort of animals live there. We will be producing pieces of art from around the world.

In History we will be looking at explorers from the past. We will be reseaching Captain Robert Scott. We will be looking at where and when he went exploring and how the expedition ended.



Homework will continue to be set weekly. It will be set on a Monday to be completed by the following Monday.  This homework can be found by logging onto Spelling Shed and My Maths. Please let your class teacher know if you are having problems accessing either site.


Over this term some of the children in Year 2 will be starting on the Accelerated Reading scheme. The children will be competing a test to find their reading level before choosing their own books and completing on line quizzes to check their level of comprehension skills. For more information, please ask one of the Year 2 staff.

All children should be reading to an adult at least 3 times each week.  For us to know this is happening we ask you to sign your child’s reading record with a comment on how much they read, if they did well or any difficulties that they had.  Also please can you talk with your child about what they are reading as this helps with their comprehension


As per the last two half terms, all children must continue to learn their half termly spelling lists – Spring 1st Half – for a test at the end of this half term.  Ideally this should happen weekly – little and often – to enable the children to master the spelling of all of the words. 



PE continues to be on a Tuesday. Please make sure your child has the appropriate kit and all pieces are clearly named.
