Sunny Bank - Nightingale and Stephenson Class

Classroom News

This term’s topic is Wriggle and Crawl.


In English we will be looking at non-fiction writing and information texts about frogs and butterflies. We will then be writing stories based on the book Tadpole’s Promise.


This term we are going to be revising addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions.


Our P.E day this term is Tuesday. All children should have named plimsolls, T-shirt and shorts. PE kits should remain in school all week. On P.E days, I would be grateful if all jewellery could be removed before school.


The Year 2 children will begin their SATs next week and will complete 1 paper a week until the end of term. Please rest assured that the Year 2 SATs will be as stress free as possible. They will take place in small groups with Mrs Kreiselmeier and the children have already completed practice papers successfully in this way. We have made it very clear to the children that the papers are just a way for them to show us how clever they are and they are not something to worry about.

This is a copy of our book banding colours and what each colour means. If you are not sure which colour your child is on please ask their teacher.


Earn 10 green points for every piece of homework you complete!


Please continue to support your child with daily reading of their school reading book or books that you have at home. We will also be sending home practice reading papers for the children to complete every weekend.

Phonics and Spelling

Some of our children will be retaking their phonics check next term (please see your child’s class teacher if you are not sure if your child will be doing this). We will be sending home phonics/ spellings activities for the children to complete.


Please continue to help your child to learn their times tables. We are currently revising addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and will send home arithmetic practice every Friday.

Many thanks for your continued support. If you have any queries or concerns please don’t hesitate to make an appointment to speak to us.

Mrs R Kreiselmeier and Mr G Russell

To be the best we can be
