Easter Holiday Homework
- Your child will have a copy of the key instant recall facts for summer 1. This is to practise reading time using analogue clock.
- Mathletics – Just a reminder your child is set a Mathletics activity every week. For those who cannot access Mathletics we run a Mathletics club during the week.
Please spend some time reading with your child at home. Within the white reading journal, there are some activities that you can complete about the book that you are reading. Please select 2 activities to complete during the holidays and tick/initial activities already completed.
After Easter we will be reading the BFG by Roald Dahl. Write instructions about how to make your BFG chair. Remember to use imperative verbs (bossy action words) and a safety tip.
For your holiday homework we would like you to make a chair for the BFG as we will be learning about material and their properties in Science.
Think about how you can make your chair strong and comfortable. Please remember to use recyclable, child friendly materials such as empty plastic pop bottles/ milk cartons and cardboard tubes.
We wish you a happy and safe Easter. The BFG is looking forward to testing your chairs.
Next half term, our topic is all about Sir Titus Salt and we would like you to become researchers in the holiday! For your homework we would like you to use your BLP learning muscles to find out about a famous person in Bradford.
You can present your work as a poster, letter, leaflet or a mind map. You might want to research:
- Why are they famous in Bradford?
- Did they have a family?
- When were they born?
- Any other facts?
We will look forward to seeing your wonderful creations!
Have a lovely holiday

Thank you for all the holiday homework it was fantastic!
In our topic this half term we have been looking at collage. We represented the Great Fire of London using the skills that we have learnt. We have been reading non-fiction texts about the Great Fire of London. We have learnt lots of facts about the event and have used drama to act out the main events of the blaze. We will be using this to write our own diary entry.
This week Year 2 have visited the Remembrance space to reflect and remember. From this we made a poppy collage and have made remembrance day poems.
Just a reminder that the children can come and borrow a library book on a Monday or Tuesday lunchtime. Mathletics club is still available to children who want to improve their maths skills on a Wednesday lunchtime.
Thank you for your continued support!

Visiting the Prayer Space with The Salvation Army
This week Year 2 had a visit from Buttons the rabbit.
We know how to cross the road safely.
Always hold a hand with a grown up
At the Puffin crossing
Press the button
Wait for the green man
Check it’s safe to cross
Mrs Little is our lollipop lady. Her job is to stop traffic and make sure it is safe to cross the road.
We hope you had a great summer holiday and enjoyed the break.
We have made a fantastic start to the year. The children have returned with a good attitude and ready to learn.
Thank you for the fantastic holiday homework. We loved looking at all of the animals you have created.
This half term our topic is all about animals. We will be looking at the changes animals make from baby to adult, what they need to survive and classifying animals.
We will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction in maths.
Please remember that Mathletics is a great way to support your child’s learning and progress.
Just a big a reminder to read with your child regularly at home. We would appreciate if you would comment in the reading log as this will enable your child to change their book.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff.
Thank you for your continued support.
