Information for Parents – Spring Term 2018


Year 2

Topic for this term:


Superheroes and Glow and Glitter

Any further details about this term’s topic:

Hope you all had a lovely summer. We’ll start the term with the topic Superheroes. Intergalactic greetings, young heroes. It’s time to rescue the planet from evil villains!

Who’s your favourite superhero? Spider-Man? Wonder Woman? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who’ve achieved great things. Or is it those people who save lives in our emergency services that you admire most? Superheroes have super senses. Use yours to identify mystery items by their smells, taste, sound and touch.

Later in the term our topic will be Glitter and Glow. This will include work on The fire of London and Guy Fawkes as well as Festivals of Light.

Our role play areas will include - a superhero headquarters, and a home corner.

We will be learning rhymes, songs and reading a variety of stories linked to our topics.

Where possible we will fit our literacy, number, science, dance, IT, music and art into the topic too.

We will also be celebrating Harvest, Bonfire Night and Christmas; this will also include cross curricular Literacy and Numeracy activities.


Days homework will be set:


Days homework is to be in:



Days which PE kit will be needed:

Tuesday, but it would be useful if PE kit is kept in school every day in case of changes to the timetable. Also, please pop a spare pair of pants and socks into the kit.

Any other ways parents can help (e.g. help needed with readers, items that can be sent in related to the topic )

If anyone is able to help on Wild Walks we would be very grateful.

We would appreciate your support this term with listening to your child read every night and with practising spelling their high frequency words and letter formation.

If anyone is able to help on Wild Walks we would be very grateful.

Any other general reminders.

Your child will need a piece of fruit for break time.

On Wednesday’s children in the Foundation Phase are able to wear non uniform as Wednesday’s will consist of exciting Wild Walks and Theme days. These clothes should be old as they are likely to get a little mucky! It would be useful if a pair of wellies could be left in school for the term.

Otherwise, please ensure that the appropriate school uniform and footwear is worn.

Book bags need to be sent to school every Thursday. 


                         Thank you for your help and support.


Many thanks-Mrs Anthony
