Brennand’s Endowed CE Primary School Slaidburn


Welcome back - Autumn 2 2022


In KS2..........

This half term our topic is The Art of Food

In science we will be finding out all about our teeth and digestive system.


In geography we will be looking at environmental issues and considering how much waste we create and how we get rid of it. We will also be considering how we can reduce, reuse and recycle. Finally, in art we will be looking at still life paintings by Cezanne and Renoir and creating our own style life drawing and creating sculptures out of papier mache 


This term Y3/4 will be having a Forest School session on a Thursday afternoon. CHildren in Y3/4 can come to school on their Forest School gear. Y5/6 will be having a PE session with Marie, the sports coach.


Reading and homework

Regular reading is a fundamental part of your child’s learning both at school and at home. Please fill in reading records. Times tables are also essential and need to be practised regularly at home along with spellings and times tables.


Every half term the children will get a homework grid with activites they can do linked to their topic work or their English and maths. Although these activites are optional it will help the children develop their independant learning if the complete them ( and earn team tokens!).

Forest School

Forest School is now on Thursday afternoon and for this half term is for Y3/4. They can still come into school in their Forest School gear.Keep an eye on the weather as a change of clothes might also be useful.


Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries.


Mrs Murray and Mrs Hough.




Keep an eye on this website and your emails - there are bound to be changes!

We finished off our topic on teeth and the digestive system by making a working model of the digestive system. Messy, fun and informative.
