Class 2

WELCOME TO CLASS 2

Class Teacher: Miss McKay

Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Collins

Welcome back-I hope you all had a lovely spring break and are ready to start another exciting half term in class 2. 

Super English...

Our English lessons this half term will begin by writing a non chronological report all about sea life creatures. We will also be looking at using our writing skills to write persuasive letters to help endangered sea creatures. For our narrative this half term, we will be using the Literacy Shed video Bubbles to inspire our writing. 

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 to build on our extensive knowledge beginning with looking at position and direction and moving on to mass, capacity and temperature and then applying all of our skills into problem solving. 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 DT, we will be focussing on healthy food and creating healthy sea side snacks! We are also hoping to visit the sea life centre in Blackpool so please keep an eye out for the letter being sent home. 

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 continue with last half terms spellings beginning with week 3 'tion' words. I will send the new lists home when we have completed these ones. Thanks you. 

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 £7 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
