Happy New Year and welcome back to Term 3!
The children have settled quickly after the holidays and are enjoying finding out about their new topic- Deserts.
This term we are focussing on encouraging the children to challenge themselves on Accelerated Reader. The children have time in school to read every day, sometimes this is in a Guided Reading group and sometimes this is independently. With SATs approaching (Term 5) we ask that you make it a high priority to read with your child every day in order to improve their reading stamina as well as their comprehension. Thank you to the many families who are already doing this- it really does make a huge difference to your child’s learning!
We have lots of exciting activities planned in school including; sand art, developing our ICT skills in the ICT suite and data collection in Maths.
Welcome to Term 2!
Welcome back from a well-deserved rest. We have a busy and exciting term to look forward to where we will be learning about why we celebrate bonfire night and remembering our Service people, past and present, culminating in a whole school Remembrance service with special visitors.
We will also be recognising Black History Month by finding out about Mary Seacole and her influence on nursing and modern day hospitals.
To end this term we will be practising our very own version of The Christmas Story ready to perform to our families. We cannot wait to see another spectacular show from our talented performers!

Welcome to Term 1!
We look forward to getting to know you all and are excited to work with you to continue your learning journey at Minster School.
In Year 2 we work in a carrousel where you will have the opportunity to boost your Mathletics points and build on your reading stamina each week. We wonder how many of you will reach your end of year reading word target of 150,000 words?
Additionally, we will be introducing you to weekly times tables tests, we have lots of fun ways to help you learn these facts – why not try playing ‘hit the button’ at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Did you know about the Aviation Museum in Eastchurch? We will be exploring this in our Topic this term.
Get your learning brains ready! We look forward to welcoming you back.
