Welcome Back to the New Year and the Autumn Term!! 

Hello there and welcome to Class 2's web page!!  I hope you have had a wonderful Summer break with lots of special family time. The autumn term is always a busy one as the children familiarise themselves with the challenges and exciting work that they will face.  It is probably one of my favourite terms as I get used to all of the new personalities and characters; it always holds lots of lovely memories for us all.  The children in Year 2 will have lots of exciting things to look forward to, including our class residential in the Spring term; information regarding this visit will follow soon,   

 I will teach the children on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  Mrs Tomlinson will be their teacher on Wednesdays and will cover Science, RE and PE.; I know she also has some exciting things planned for the children.

On this page you will find lots of information, events and news about the class, our topics and most importantly the wonderful work we produce! You will also find important information about our daily routines, homework and dates for your diaries. 

If you have any concerns, questions or worries please feel free to pop in and see me, either before or after school or you can leave a message via email, phone or in the class message book located in the school office. My door is always open.

Warmest Regards,

Mrs King

In Art and DT, we will be using the text to create some exciting art work, collages and models of our unusual creature.  The featured author will be helping us to develop this work in her workshop.

 

As Scientists...

As Mathematicians...

  In Maths, as always, we will endeavour to thread our learning throughout all areas of the curriculum, making links where we can.  This half term will predominantly focus on place value, addition and subtraction.

To help your child's Maths learning at home, you can assist with times table recall (2's, 5's and 10's), using money and learning to tell the time.  Please click on the link below for an example of a times table game.

Embedded Calendar

Reading

During the week, all children take part in guided reading sessions both as a whole class and individually. Within these sessions we read a variety of extracts and chapters from stories. These sessions aim to develop word recognition, inference skills, comprehension of texts and fluency/understanding of the texts we read. 

There are also opportunities for the children to develop their love of reading during quiet reading sessions

In KS1 we strongly encourage parents/guardians to read at least 3 times a week and record a short comment in thier child''s reading diary about that reading session..

I am always grateful for any help with reading during school time if you can offer a couple of hours; it really does help the children's progress in reading and writing.

PE

In Year Two our PE sessions are on Wednesday and Thursday. In the spring term, the children will participate in swimming lessons.  More information will follow.  Our focus in PE this term will be on gymnastics, movement and dance.  Please ensure that your child has the relevant kit for their PE sessions..

Although our sessions are scheduled for these days, it is not uncommon for those to change due to other events in school so it is vital that all children have their kits in school on Monday and remain in school until the weekend. 

 

Homework

Homework is given on a two weekly rota. One week, English is sent home and the following week, Maths is sent home. It is given on a Friday and due in the following Friday. Please try to ensure that homework is brought in by the due date so it can be checked and prepared for the following week.

Learning Logs are sent home each half term.

Spellings are sent home weekly on a Friday and tested the following Friday.

If you have any issues regarding the homework set then please contact me via the message book or at the door and I will do my best to resolve the issue
