Class 2

Welcome to Class 2.

 

We have a very exciting year ahead and I am sure the children will enjoy learning and working together. Below is information about our class routines to help parents have a feel of what your children are doing and when.

 

Class 2's Teacher is Mr Scully.

Class 2's Higher Level Teaching Assistant is Miss Critchlow and the Positive Play and Nurture Lead is Mrs Houghton.

 

TOPIC

Our topic this half term is Predators.

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side. Find out who’s coming to visit. Is it a bug munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it? Learn about creepy crocs and amazing alligators, the deadly assassin bug and the voracious Venus flytrap. Be inspired to write an informative leaflet all about your favourite predator and compose a poem about a predator or its prey. Then use what you know about the best of the beasts to create the ultimate predator; the apex of the food chain. Cross your dad with a peregrine falcon or your nan with a great white shark. What incredible species can you imagine? Feeling peckish? Let’s jump aboard the food chain.

 

ENGLISH

Our text this half term is Fantastic Mr Fox. In Grammar, Punctuation and spelling we will be looking at conjunctions, adverbs and adverbials. Our spelling will continue to focus on our 'orange words' as well as our weekly spelling units.

 

MATHS

Our Maths themes this half term are Statistics, measurement, decimals and fractions. Each Monday and Friday we will be working hard with our Beat That Maths.

 

PE

Class 2 will have a PE lesson on Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for these days. We hope to resume swimming lessons later in the year.

 

MUSIC

We will also be enjoying music lessons on a Monday with the Wider Opportunities scheme with each child learning how to play a brass instrument which will be brought home each week for the children to practise.

 

HOMEWORK

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Each week children will have a Maths and English piece to complete in their homework book. In addition, children will be expected to read each day and this is to be recorded in their reading record diary which should be returned each day. We also use TT Rockstars which can be accessed at home and this is a fun way to learn and improve their times tables knowledge.

 

Throughout each day we will also be taking part in fun activities such as the Daily Mile and Go Noodle which the children enjoy.

If you have any questions please speak to me at the end of the day or contact me at school.

Spring 2 term topic - Predator.

Predator!

It’s time to take a walk on the wild side. Find out who’s coming to visit. Is it a bug munching lizard or an eagle-eyed bird of prey? Whatever it is, do you think you can handle it?

Black History Month

Below is a link to some websites looking at, and teaching us about, Black History Month. October is the usual time when Black History is highlighted although it does not have to just be October. We have been discussing and looking at these links in school but feel free to take a look at home.
