Towers, Tunnels and Turrets Padlet: https://padlet.com/richardbosworth/towerstunnelsandturrets
Find out what we will be learning about this term in Year 2!
Towers, Tunnels and Turrets
Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one… Who is the tallest? Can you Measure it?
Then dig deep, deep down making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground.
What’s that sound? I hear little hooves going trip, trap, trip, trap, over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath… He likes to gobble up little girls and boys! Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take the weight and get us safely to the other side.
And finally… meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf.
No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down!

Buzzard Class Spelling Test
Children in Buzzard will be given a new list of spellings in their Spelling Book on a Thursday.
A Spelling test to check their spellings will take place the following Wednesday giving the children 1 week to learn their spellings. Please help your child to practise these spellings and encourage them to apply them in any writing done at home. If your child knows the spellings confidently, practise writing them in a sentence and also remember to revisit spellings from previous weeks as sometimes they are not always retained.
Buzzard Class Maths Homework
Maths homework will be set on THURSDAY. Your child will be able to Log In to their Abacus Account and complete the set homework based on the week's maths lessons. Children completing homework each week will receive a certificate at the end of term.
Buzzard Class Family Challenges
Each child has their own Family Challenge Book. There is a list of ideas you can complete together at home to supplement the theme in Class. We would like each child to complete at least 1 challenge, but there is no limit! Each challenge completed and brought to School can earn 10 team points and an acknowledgement in our Celebration Assembly!
