REAL PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.
It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from this week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical well-being but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months.

We would like Year 2 to...
Year 2 have been learning about the Victorians this half term. We have really enjoyed learning about Queen Victoria, her husband Prince Albert, her 9 children and the family dog Dash.
In English, we have read ‘The Victorian Adventure’ and ‘The Chimney Sweep’. We found out that children as young as 5 had to go work in the Victorian times. They worked in the mines, up the chimneys and in workhouses.
In History, we have looked at Queen Victoria’s timeline and compared her to Queen Elizabeth. We then researched about ‘The Great Exhibition’. We then studied Florence Nightingale and all the good things she did for nurses and hospitals.
In art, we researched the famous artist William Morris. We found out that he was a famous wallpaper designer. We then designed our own wallpaper, all of the designs were fantastic!
We have really enjoyed learning about the Victorians and we can’t wait for our Victorian trip in Autumn 2.
During Autumn 2 Year 2’s topic has been toys.
In English, we have been reading ‘Traction Man’, it was all about the adventures Traction Man and his sidekick Scrubbing Brush went on. We even acted out some of the missions to the rest of the class. We then went on to poetry, and wrote our own poem about toys. We found out that some of the children were poets!
In Geography, we have been learning about the continents of the world and the oceans. We had to label them on a map. We also researched where toys came from. Did you know that Lego came from Denmark?
For our homework project, each children designed and created a toy. The rest of the school then came to visit our toy museum. Everyone was so impressed with all of the toys.
We are now all really excited for our trip in December!
