Thank-you so much for all the lovely emails I have received over the past two weeks. I can see from the photographs you are sending me that you are all working very hard.
It is now the Easter holidays so I won't be setting you any more official home learning again until Monday 20th April. I have put some daily fluency tasks, a reading comprehension and a fun writing task on the website if you would like to complete these over the holidays. These are optional activities but it would be great if you could complete some of these. There are also some fun creative activities too. Don't forget to keep reading!
I would love to see any photographs of your Easter creations and the fun things you get up to.
Stay safe everyone.
Have an 'egg-cellent' Easter!
Due to school closure, this class page will now act as the hub for your child's home school learning. Your child has been sent home with a home school learning pack consisting of exercise books, worksheets, games, word mats, sound mats, textbooks and workbooks (the latter two will just be found in Year 2 boxes).
We appreciate that there will be some difficult times ahead, and we would encourage you to keep to some form of routine to help your child get the most from their home school learning opportunities. Please do use the links to support learning and take this rather extraordinary opportunity to share a project, apply for a Blue Peter Badge, find out more about nature, let your children join in your family cookery and see what fabulous artwork they can create etc..
Each week a timetable and list of activities / links to resources will be published here online. There is no set timetable, so the activities can be done in any order- the children may want to stick to their usual morning routines they have in class to start with, to ease the transition to working from home.
We will be checking our emails daily so please email me on C2@longborough.gloucs.sch.uk if you have any questions.
Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support with your child's education.
Mrs Kelly Hobkirk
Welcome to Class 2
(Years 1 and 2)
Happy New Year!
I hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas. Our topic this term is 'Down on the Farm', which will be enhanced with an exciting trip to Sandfields Farm. The children will learn about the geography of a farm and the life cycles of some farmyard animals. Our English lessons will focus on the non-fiction genre with the children producing a class information book about farm animals. I am sure that all of the children will thoroughly enjoy out topic this term. If the children have any books or objects associated with our topic we would love to see them.
With the colder weather approaching please ensure that the children have a warm coat in school each day, along with a hat and gloves if possible.
There are lots of events coming up this term. Please do check the ‘dates for diary’ section on the parent’s page, the Weekly Newsletter, and our noticeboard outside school.
The timetable for afternoon sessions this term:
Monday - PE/PSCHE
Wednesday - Science
Thursday - Topic through art/DT and French
Friday - Forest School
Miss Mountford, Ms Gorton and Mrs Dearman will continue providing valuable support on a part-time basis. We will all work together on PSHCE and interventions; with Mrs Mason as our SENCo across the Federation.
This term we will be focussing on our Christian value - Courage; ensuring we all understand what it means and how to embed it in all we do.
Throughout the term, we will be updating our class page with our adventures in Class 2. Once again on a Friday morning (between 8:45 and 9:00am) you are very welcome in our classroom. Please come and look at your children’s books and our classroom displays.
Please feel free to come in and speak to me and arrange a suitable time to meet if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to working closely with you during 2020.
Mrs Kelly Hobkirk
