Kingsbury Water Park

Year 1 and 2 children recently visited Kingsbury Water Park. They had an exciting day pond-dipping and minibeast hunting.

Y1 / Y2 Newsletter

Welcome back after the Easter break.

During the Summer term our work will be centred around ‘Living and Growing’ within the context of water habitats.

We will be visiting Kingsbury Water Park – where the children will be taking part in pond dipping and a woodland walk. 

In school, we will be looking at the life cycle of a tadpole in Year 1, and investigating what a plant needs to grow.

We much appreciate the help given by parents this year, and would like to thank particularly those who have come on trips, and those who have come into school to help on different occasions. 

Hearing your children read on a regular basis is also a great advantage, and we would ask as well this term, that you help them learn the spellings which are given each Friday for a test on the following Friday in Y1 and Monday for Y2.

Year 2 children – Over the next few weeks year 2 children will be completing SAT’s tasks – early nights may help with this!!
We hope your children have a happy and successful term to complete their experience in Years 1 and 2.
