Growing with Jesus


 Welcome to Y2

       Reading Books are changed on Tuesday's. 

Bug Club is available for additional (book banded) reading material and library books are changed on Thursdays. 


PE sessions are on Tuesday and Wednesday but try to have your kit in school every day. 



Set: Friday 8th November

Due: Tuesday 17th December 


This term it is Y2s turn to complete their 'creative' homework linked to our topic.   

You can choose to produce a piece of work on either our history topic about the Great Fire of London, or our local Geography unit on Lichfield.  


It is entirely up to you which direction you want to take your learning in, with the idea being that you let your creative ideas flow! 


For example, you might choose to do one of the following...



  • create a 3D model of the houses in London at the time of the fire (you could use boxes, lego, mod-roc etc.)  
  • research changes in the fire service following on from this tragedy or produce a poster about fire safety  
  • discover more about Samuel Pepys and his diary  
  • explore what you would save (like Pepys did)   
  • bake some bread or set up your own model of Pudding Lane Bakery  
  • research what happened to St Paul's Cathedral during and after the fire  
  • have another go at diary writing using ink and a quill 
  • research what life was like back in 1666 in terms of fashion, employment  schooling etc.  
  • produce a video advertising and promoting the wonderful things about the city we live in   
  • research famous historical figures from Lichfield  
  • produce your own map of Lichfield 
  • produce a piece of art work (for example a painting or collage) about the Cathedral or other places of interest in the city



...or come up with a brilliant idea of you own.

The possibilities are really endless so have fun being creative! 

You will present your project in class during the last week of term.




Weekly spelling lists will be sent home for you to learn each Friday  this term.

You will be tested on these the following Friday.
