Dahl (Year 2)

Term 6

Welcome back Dahl Class!

We've got a fantastic term ahead of us! We'll be writing a narrative inspired by 'George and the Dragon' by Chris Wormell and a poem based on 'Desk Diddler' byMichael Rosen. We'll be learning all about plants and growing our own sunflowers in science and looking at how different artists represent flowers in their work. We'll be making flower paintings in the style of Georgia O'Keffe and sculptures inspired by contemporary artist Phoebe Cummings. We have a trip to the library and Chippenham museum planned and we'll also be going to the SS Great Britain to revisit and deepen our learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel from Term 4. 


This term we will still have PE on Mondays (dance indoors)  and Fridays (outside). Please ensure children come in correct PE uniform on these days: 

  • Plain black / navy shorts, plain white t-shirt or white t-shirt with school logo
  • Trainers for outdoor PE
  • Plain black / navy joggers and a plain black / navy sweatshirt or ‘hoodie’ or a normal blue school jumper.

  Please do not wear different colours or clothes with other logos. 

Have a look at the curriculum map for Term 6 and knowledge organisers attached for more detailed information about our learning and to help you talk about this learning together. As always, come and speak to me at the door if you have any questions or comments, I'm always happy to chat. 

I will set home learning on Fridays to be submitted via Google Classroom on Wednesdays. You can upload pictures of work, send a short comment or bring in paper work to show me.  Home learning is a way for adults at home to be actively involved with the children's learning. I  hope the tasks  encourage fun learning together and rich conversations to deepen learning and engagement.

See you at the door,

Mrs Akin.
