Whilst learning at home, we decided it would be lots of fun to hold our own Year 2 Bake Off competition! We planned and made our own sweet or savoury dishes and sent pictures into school. Mrs Raftery then chose a winner and 2 runners up! Below you will see photographs of all of our wonderful creations...

Our current mini-mission is...
Using The Empty Pot book by Demi as a stimulus, children investigate the conditions for growing seeds and plants. In the story, the Emperor gives a seed to every child and says that whoever grows the best plant can become the next Emperor. The focus for this mini mission is scientific writing, where children record the process of carrying out a scientific test.
At Five Spires we follow the Read Write Inc. phonics programme.
Every day the children receive dynamic and systematic teaching adapted to their current attainment.
Once we have completed our phonics journey, we then focus on developing our ability to summarise, infer and retrieve information quickly by using a range of fiction and non-fiction texts.
You can find out more information about the programme as well as access free ebooks on the Oxford Owl website.

At Five Spires we follow the White Rose Schemes of Learning. We believe that all children can make strong, secure and real progress, no matter their starting points. The small steps within each unit support this. Our progression can be found on the White Rose Maths website.
