Class 2

WELCOME TO CLASS 2

Class Teacher: Miss McKay

Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Collins

Welcome back-I hope you all had a lovely Easter and are ready to start the summer term. 

Super English...

Our English lessons this half term will begin by looking at a short film called 'Something Fishy' During this narrative unit, we will be focussing on retelling stories, looking at description and expanding our own knowledge to become brilliant story tellers. We will then move on to looking at non chronological reports.

Super Writing...

We love celebrating our children's wonderful writing at Water, we do this by uploading fantastic pieces onto Pobble. It would mean the world to the children to receive comments on their writing!

Super Maths...

In maths, we are continuing with fractions and then moving on to length and time. Class 2 are doing brilliantly with learning their times table facts however, if possible, please could children continue to use TT Rockstars to help.  Although we have explored place value and addition and subtraction, we will continue to use these skills in daily practice. Understanding number is a key skill for children in year 2, specifically number bonds. If you would like to help at home, try practising some number bond games with your child e.g. shout a number and they have to reply with the number bond they add to make 10, 20, 30, 50, 100 etc. 

Super Topic...

Oceans and Seas

Over the next term, we will be looking at the over-arching topic of Oceans and Seas. Through this topic, we will develop our Geography skills through looking at oceans and seas around the world and then localising our knowledge by exploring local beaches. We will look at how the seaside has changed over the years also. In art, we are going to be using fabric to create some fantastic ocean themed pieces of work.

Super Scientists...

This term we are looking at plants and the environment. 

Super Readers...

Get caught up in a book...In class 2, we understand the importance of reading and expect children to read for at least 10 minutes each night. Record books will be checked daily by Mrs Collins and we will also encourage a love of reading through choosing books from the library and from our reading corner. 

Super P.E. 

Our P.E. lesson this half term will continue to be on a Monday afternoon. Please could you ensure that children are wearing the correct P.E. kits. 

Super Spellers...

The children will be given 6 weeks worth of spelling at the beginning of the half term, these will also be put on spelling shed. We do our spelling check each Friday. 

Super Tables...

As well as a spelling check, we will also be looking at doing a times table check each week. This half term, we will be focussing on mixed times tables of 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x. 

Super Snacks...

Children are provided with fruit at playtimes however if you would like to buy a healthy snack it is £1 per week, this can be payable each Monday or you can pay £5 for the half term. 

If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me on Class dojo or my door is always open. 

Thank you for the support.

Miss McKay
