We have had a great start to the summer term and it is so lovely for all the children to be back in the classroom together once again. They should all feel proud of all their super work over lockdown. A massive thank you for all your support and hard work too.
The children have already got stuck into our new English topic, ‘Muddles and Mishaps’ and have been busy writing adverts for new gadgets and writing about their own inventions. Our new History topic this term is the ‘Home Front’ and we have been learning lots about WW2 and the impact it had on life in Britain.
We love the summer term as we are able to get outside and start enjoying athletics and games. The children will be focussing on running, jumping and throwing. PE days will be on Mondays and Wednesdays so please ensure children come into school in their PE kits on these days. On Wednesdays the children will be doing dance with the amazing Ricky!
Weekly homework will be sent home on Fridays which will include spellings, Maths and English. This is to be returned the following Thursday.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to another busy and productive term. Thank you for your continued support.

Welcome to Knightlow Science week in KS1 - 15th March '21
During this week in school, we will be carrying out science investigations and we ask you to join in with this fun and fabulous week, where possible. If you go across to the Knightlow key information page, scroll down to curriculum - click and then click on the school Science icon (test tube), it will take you to lots of things to do. There are several PDFs for an array of science activities and I have made mini You tube film clips for some of these and the links are on a word document Knightlow Science week KS1.
Mrs Messenger and I would like you to take photos, send emails and tell us about anything science based you try out at home. We hope you here all about what's going on in school from your children,
Have a Happy Science Week.
Ms Bostrom & Mrs Messenger
It's hard to believe that we are already in the second half of the Autumn term. The children have settled quickly into Year 2 and already immersed themselves into so many different areas of learning. From learning and writing poetry about the beautiful nature around us to writing job applications for the role of astronauts, the children should feel proud of all they have already achieved.
I hope you have all had a lovely Half Term (despite the weather) and that the children have had a chance to refresh and recharge their batteries ready for another jam-packed half term of learning!
We will continue to use our work books for homework this half term. Please can they next be handed in on Wednesday 16th December.
Weekly spellings will be sent home in the green spelling diaries on a Friday for a test the following Friday. The spellings will also be available to download below and to practise on Spelling Shed.
w.c 7th December

Children will be able to change reading books every Monday and Wednesday. Please can you record all your child’s reading at home in their Reading diary, including the name of the book and the pages read.
Children will have PE lessons every Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that they come into school on these days in their PE kit.
We have a fabulous first half of term planned, packed full of exciting learning opportunities from making worry dolls to looking at pioneers.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you for your continued support.
