Welcome to Class 2
In Class 2, the children will be working with me (Miss Felton) and Mrs Walmsley our Teaching Assistant. Our priorities are for your child to feel happy, safe and secure in order to help them make the most of their learning.
Please help us to develop your child’s independence, by allowing them to come into the cloakroom on their own each morning and get themselves organised.
To help your child, it is really important that you hear them read at least three times a week at home and support them in learning their spellings each week too. Children bring books in to change on a Monday, but ‘free-choice’ books can be changed anytime during the week.
Our PE sessions for this half term will be on a Tuesday and Thursday, so please make sure your child has their PE kit with them on these days.
We are starting to learn times tables now in Class 2, so you could support this at home by counting in 2, 3, 5, and 10’s and by beginning to ask times tables questions within these. Don’t forget to use Purple Mash as an aid to support your child across the curriculum at home.
Our topics for the coming term are ‘The Antarctic’ and Penguins and then after half term, it will be Plants and Animals with a focus on the school grounds.
We have been creating 2D shapes using lollipop sticks.
We are enjoying using the apparatus in our gymnastics lessons with Team Active.
