Welcome to Class 2.
The children in Class 2 have started back so well, looking very smart in their school uniform. 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 Teaching Assistant and the Positive Play and Nurture Lead is Mrs Houghton.
Our topic next half term is 'Misty Mountain Sierra'. We will be going up in the world, visiting a local hill, and noticing globally how weather changes the higher we go. We will be using maps to locate the highest mountains and where they are and answering some of our own questions that we want to find the answers to. We will also be looking at the water cycle, learning the importance of water in our world and reminding ourselves of how fortunate we are compared to others with our accessibility to water.
In English we will be using our topic to explore recounts, non-chronological reports, shape poems, explanations, leaflets and stories. We will be using extracts of the Hobbit to help us look at descriptive language. In Grammar, Punctuation and spelling we will be looking at adverbs, prepositions, speech and tenses. Our spelling will continue to focus on our 'orange words' as well as our weekly spelling units.
Our Maths themes this half term are Multiplication and Division, Measurement: Length, Perimeter and Area and Fractions while we will also be focusing on our times tables.
In PE this half term we will be swimming on Tuesday afternoons at Bakewell swimming pool. In addition, Class 2 will have a PE lesson on Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the correct kit for these days.
We will also be enjoying music lessons on Tuesday’s 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 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 retuned 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.
