Welcome back to our swell class!
The new school year promises to be jam packed full of exciting learning and memory making!
Please remember that my door is always open for any concerns or compliments !
In English, we will be exploring setting through a cross curricular unit on 'Stone Age Boy'. Meanwhile in Maths, we will be learning about place value before progressing onto addition and subtraction. This term KS2 are focusing on Stone Age to Iron Age across Topic and Creative Curriculum.
The term our whole school value is 'Thankfulness'. This will be our focus in whole school and class worship. We will be defining what thankfulness is and how we can use this value to shape us into Godly, global citizens.
Please can you ensure that your child has their labelled PE kit in school every day, as we will be making the most of any good weather (!) and going to the field as often as we can. PE kits should contain a blue PE t-shirt, shorts, joggers, a jumper, socks and appropriate footwear.
Every morning Class 2 enjoy two different morning activities. Firstly, I have a task on the interactive whiteboard which they complete in their orange morning books. These tasks are designed to wake up their brains ready for the busy day ahead. They then progress onto their creative morning activity:
Monday: Mindful Colouring
Tuesday: Spelling spree
Wednesday: Mindful Maths
Thursday: Creative Cursive
Friday: Mindful Colouring and ‘What Stuck?’
Please join us in our class room on Friday mornings from 8:45 – 9:00 and explore our classroom. Much has changed in Class 2 since my arrival and the children are benefitting from and enjoying our vibrant displays and engaging content. Mrs Coleman and I continue to dedicate time and effort into our room to ensure that it remains an exciting and inviting learning hub!
Homework will alternate between Maths and English and will be set on a Friday to be returned the following Friday. Spellings will be sent home every Friday and tested the following Friday.
Please ensure that your child reads for at least 15 minutes every day, either to somebody else or independently. Reading records will be checked throughout the week to monitor progress.
Each member of Class 2 is given a ‘Daily Do’s’ folder in which to keep their Spelling book, reading record and reading book. These need to be brought into school every morning and return home with children at the end of the school day.
