Changes within Living Memory

The aim of this pack is to introduce children to the concept of living memory as a chronological term and the disciplinary concepts of continuity and change, evidence and similarity and difference. All evidence can be gathered by speaking to family members over the phone, e-mail or via Skype. 

The findings of the enquiry can be presented in whichever way suits your child best - be that using PowerPoint, a non-chronological report or drawing.

Year 2 children will go swimming at Sleaford Leisure Centre in the Spring term. Being able to swim is a vital life skill. All children are expected to be able to swim at least 25m using a range of swimming stokes effectively by the end of key stage 2.

Please can your child keep a named PE kit in school all week (dark shorts and/or jogging bottoms, a white T-shirt and trainers or plimsolls.) If the weather is fine, PE may take place outdoors so please make sure your child has an outdoor kit. Please can you also ensure that all items of school clothing are named to prevent any mix-ups at the end of the day.


All Y1 and Y2 children have homework books and tasks to complete. Below is a link to this term's tasks. We would like the children to complete at least four tasks per term. If homework is brought in on a Friday it will be shared with the rest of the class. We would also like children to practise their weekly spellings.
