Welcome to Class 2!

We are a very energetic bunch of Year 1 and Year 2s. Our teachers are Miss Harker and Mrs Clune. We are assisted by Miss Seager and Mrs Napier-Ford.

We really like writing stories and use Talk for Writing to practise our stories before we write them down.

Our maths target is to learn all our times tables.

Welcome to term 2

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Welcome back to class 2. We have lots of exciting things planned for term 2. Our reading book changing days will continue to be Mondays, and Thursdays. Please continue to bring in reading records and reading books every day. Our PE session will take place on a Wednesday afternoon with Allstars.

Our topic for Term 2 is Once upon a time! We are looking forward to reading and writing lots of traditional tales. In science, the class will be focusing on working scientifically and what it means to be a scientist. They will be doing lots of experiments based on different traditional tales. In history we will be learning about life in a castle and comparing it to our lives today. In geography we will be learning about physical and human features of our environment. Children will be developing their art skills with Mrs Clune, who has lots of fun activities lined up, including building castles! Please could your child bring in their own cardboard junk model material for their castle – for example cardboard boxes, smaller boxes kitchen roll tubes etc. in a named carrier bag by Tuesday 17th November.   

Our key story for the term is ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We will be acting out the story and becoming familiar with some of the interesting language that is used. In Maths we will be focusing on number and place value, stretching all the way to 100! We will also continue learning about addition and subtraction.

It’s the Christmas term and although we sadly cannot do a Christmas nativity with Class 1 and Class 3 as we usually do, we will be doing something special in our bubble. Watch this space! 

In Phonics, we will be separating the class into phonics groups to ensure that we are progressing on from our learning from the previous term. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to come and find a member of the team.

Welcome Class 2!

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We would like to welcome you to Class 2 and let you know about our class routines and topics for this term.  Miss Harker will be our teacher on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and Mrs Clune will be our teacher on Tuesdays. Mrs Carter will be teaching music on Monday afternoons. Mrs Napier-Ford and Miss Seagar are our fantastic teaching assistants. Our book changing days will be Mondays, and Thursdays. We aim to read with children as much as possible and we have quiet time for reading every day, so please make sure children have their reading books and reading records every day.

 

PE sessions will take place on a Wednesday afternoon with Allsorts. The children will be outside as much as possible so you may wish to pack a jumper or other warm clothes in PE kits. Earrings need to be removed or covered and long hair tied back.

 

Our topic for Term 1 is Dinosaurs! Our first key story will be ‘The Little Green Dinosaur’ and we will also be learning to write instructions to explain how to look after a baby dinosaur. We will be learning about Mary Anning, a famous fossil hunter and about the continents of the world. In science we will be learning about living things and their habitats. In maths we will be learning about numbers and place value, shapes and addition and subtraction.

 

In Phonics, we will be separating the class into phonics groups to ensure that we are progressing on from our learning from the previous term. Year 2 will be taught phonics with Mrs Cooke. Year 2 will have a spelling test on a Friday and spellings for next week will be sent home on the same day. Year 2 also have a times tables test on a Friday and will have a times tables book to practise in.  

 

Class 2 can seem like a big transition for year 1. Please be assured we will take things gently and there will still be lots of time for learning through play. We have lots of exciting things planned. We are really looking forward to welcoming the children and getting to know everybody!

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to come and find a member of the team.
