Welcome to Class 2
We are very excited for the forthcoming year as a new teaching team.
The classroom has had a makeover during the summer break and has a new 'fun learning environment' feel to it. We cannot wait to see how the children settle into their new classroom.
This term our topic is 'water' and we have set up an interest table for the children to bring in items linked to our topic to share. We are also hoping to get some class fish, we currently have a tank but would welcome any contributions to help us set up ready for our new class mates.
As always, parents are welcome in to the class on a Friday morning from 8:35am until 9:00am. Please use this time to come and look at your children’s books and our classroom displays. We kindly ask that you leave by 9am so that we may start with our day promptly.
Please see the following details of our weekly timetable:
Monday - Guided Reading
Tuesday - Topic
Wednesday - PE (am) Creative Curriculum (pm)
Thursday - Topic
Friday - Topic
Children will need to have wellies and PE kits in school at all times. We shall endeavor to get children changed back into school uniform at the end of PE on a Monday so that PE kits can stay in school for the remainder of the week. Your child will need the following PE kit; green t-shirt, green jumper, black shorts, black joggers, trainers, socks and spare underwear. Please ensure every item is labelled.
The class letter and term overview will include extra information about our learning focuses this year. As always, please feel free to come in and speak to us or arrange a suitable time to meet with us if you have any questions or concerns.
Please note, we shall update our class page with homework, photos and other useful information each week.

On the site:
Children will be set activities for homework and they will not be able to access anything else until they have completed this. If they can not complete this at home then I will ask them to do this during lunchtime at school. Once they have completed their homework activities they can games, which focus on each strand of maths that they are taught in school.
Maths Homework 15th November - 22nd November
This week, Year 2 have been working on representing money addition problems as a bar model in order to find the answer.
The homework sheet below (also sent home) is designed to consolidate and practice the method we have been learning in class.
Year 2 have a week to have a go and bring their homework back to class.
There is an example of layout on the sheet attached to help your child with setting out their bar model.
If your child is really stuck, please do not worry, I am more than happy to help them in school.
