Class 2

Welcome to Class 2!

 

Dear Parents,

As some of you may be aware, at the weekend I crashed my car quite badly and my evenings have been very busy on the phone to insurers and making the same statement to a billion different companies it feels like! So there will be no official homework given out today, Friday 13th April. Please could you continue to listen to your child read, practise 2x, 5x and 10x tables and mental arithmetic? This week the children have been learning all about 2D shapes so perhaps they could go on a shape hunt around the house? They could draw and name the shapes they find or even take pictures and name the shapes found.

Many thanks for your understanding and all the fantastic work you continue to do to support your child's learning.

Mrs H

In the summer term we are very lucky to have Mrs Davies with Class 2. She is doing the final teaching placement of her PGCE at UWE with us. She will be building up her teaching commitment until she is leading 80% of the lessons. Meanwhile I will be in the class room doing focused work with the children and running intervention groups to give your children the best we can and so they have the best foundations in the lead up to KS2. 

 

We have lots of fantastic and fun learning to look forward to over the rest of Year 2. Our topics will be: 'History's Makers & Shakers' with a history focus learning about inventors and their inventions and explorers. Please see the Learning Map below for detail about our learning in the Spring term.

 

PE

This is still on THURSDAYS with coach Harley from Future Stars this term. It will be outdoors as often as possible so it is essential that children have all of their outdoor PE kit every week. 

 

Library

Will still be on MONDAYS. Please encourage your child to read and return their book on Mondays. There are still some children who have yet to return or replace books borrowed from September.
