Our topic this term is Dragons and Castles



In English we will begin by exploring a range of stories about Dragons, these will include The Egg, Tell Me a Dragon and Dragon Stew. Children will have opportunities to make dragon eggs and create their own dragons. They will then describe their appearance and characteristics before editing this and writing WANTED posters. Children will progress to identifying the features of a report and then write their own reports about Dragons. The story The Egg will encourage children to think about and write instructions for how to care for a Dragon egg!

We hope the children will be excited by this topic and we very much look forward to reading their work. 

We will be covering a range of skills in GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling)

* Sentence structure



*Verbs and adverbs


In Maths this term we are going to be focusing on,

*Multiplication and division 

*Geometry (properties of shape)


*Measurement (mass and length)

The Maths homework that we send home each week is linked directly to what your child has been taught. We hope the homework gives your child the opportunity to share their learning with you. If you would like to do any extra work at home,we would like for all children to be very secure in knowing their 2, 5 and 10 Times Tables. 


Our topic in Geography this term is China!

Children will understand geographical similarities and differences through studying the human and physical geography of a small area of the United Kingdom, and of a small area in a contrasting non European country in the context of China. 

History will be taught next term.


In Year 2 all homework will be set on a Friday. Children are expected to return their homework book the following Thursday. Children will have Phonics/Spelling homework and a piece of maths linked to the weeks learning.

All children have a reading book and are expected to read, to an adult, for at least 10 minutes each evening. When your child's book needs changing they need to put it into the allocated box in their classroom. We would ask that children read the book reasonably fluently and are able to talk about what they have read confidently before it is changed.

Class Dojo

Children at Pilgrims Way are very excited by our whole school reward system! In class children are able to earn themselves Dojo points, the children are able to accumulate points over the course of a week. In Key Stage 1 each week the children will start from zero to give them a fresh chance at earning the most class Dojo points. We hope that the children will be excited to tell you all about this.


All children should have their full P.E kit in school at all times. P.E kit should be clearly labelled with your child's name.

If you are unsure about the kit that your child needs, please click on the link below.
