Class 2

Welcome to class 2! Taught by Miss Greenwood and Mrs Walton, with support from Mrs Cutler and Miss Sheard. 

General Reminders 

HOMEWORK is given out on a Friday afternoon and is to be brought in on a Wednesday. SPELLINGS, for Miss Greenwood's phonics group, are also handed out on a Friday, to prepare children for their spelling test on Thursdays.                                                                

Children will need their PE KITS (black shorts and a white t-shirt, with pumps or trainers) on a Monday and Tuesday for PE lessons. PE kit can stay in school throughout the week. Children should have their trainers on both of those days, weather depending on where their lesson will take place. Earings must be removed for sports. Please make sure that uniform, as well as PE kit are labelled with names.

Reading and Literacy

READING RECORDS should be written in by an adult at home once a week to show any progress made with their accelerated reader book. A member of staff will also read once a week with each child, and write in their accelerated reader quiz scores. Children will also read independantly for 15 minutes a day at school, and are expected to do the same at home. Class 2 do Literacy every morning for an hour, working on our writing and comprehension skills. Children will recieve a comprehension homework, for practice, every two weeks.​​ Our termly project may link with our themes of writing.

This Term in Class 2

This term our project is 'Enchanted Forest'. Within this project we will be looking at creatures and plants in the forest, learning through lots of science and geography. We will be investigating our project along with class 1, participating in a carousel of activities based around the topic every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. This way, children will be able to interact with another class one day a week, sharing ideas and learning outside of their own classroom. We look forward to reading and basing our writing on the story'The Gruffalo' and will be inviting you to a 'tea party in the forest!' as part of our class enterprise. 

Maths

Class 2 do an hour of maths every morning, practicing our arithmetic, reasoning and problem solving throughout every objective. Currently, we are developing our knowledge of place value in numbers with up to 3 digits. Every other week, children will recieve a piece of maths homework, linked to that week's learning. Ask your children to explain 'how they know' the answer to a homework question, or what they have learned at school - to practice their reasoning skills!

 

If you have any concerns or problems, please come to the door before or after school and speak to one of our class staff members. If required, don't hesitate to make an appointment with us one day after school.

We are going to have a fantastic year in Class 2!

Miss Greenwood
