Welcome to Class 2
Welcome to Robin Class from Mrs Phillips & Mrs Johnson and our student teacher joining us this half term Miss Woodhard!
We hope that you have all enjoyed your holidays and are looking forward to the year ahead.
Last term the whole school was learning about The River Itchen, we will be finishing this off.
We will be looking at some of the photos of the places we visited and identifying man made and natural features in the environment. We will also be covering our history this term and looking at the Great Fire of London. We will link this with our literacy and will be writing diaries and Newspaper articles .
Within Maths we will be continuing to developing our skills in number with further addition and subtraction problems, multiplication and division using 2,5,10's, halving and quarters, then finally we will be looking at length.
Children need to be able to explain HOW they work things out and explain WHY they have used the different strategies. If you are unsure of how to help your child with maths, we have a calculation policy on this website to aid you.
Just a few things you will need to know:
Just a reminder please read as much as possible with your child and fill in their reading records either by ticking the middle section or writing a note about their reading (minimum 4 x per week) , please feel free to change your child's book in the classroom, However we will encourage them to change them every week. Should your child reach four ticks on the inside of their Reading Log for the week they shall receive a Class Dojo for reading.
Homework and spellings will go out on Fridays. Please return all homework for the following Tuesday and Spellings Tests will be on Friday.
Library visits will be Friday mornings.
The children are allowed 2 books out at a time for a 2 week period.
PE is every other Monday starting 4/11 for the whole afternoon with Nigel. This term we will be looking at ball skills. We will also be doing other physical activities when they will not necessarily need pe kits - please make sure children have tracksuits as well as shorts and trainers/plimsolls that FIT (we will be going outside if its dry).
On a Wednesday afternoon we will be going 'Out with Bee'. Please ensure that your child comes suitably dressed for Forest School activities on a Wednesday bringing a spare change of clothes, water bottle and a snack. We strongly recommend that your child has waterproof trousers and wellies.
Some of you have asked about phonics we use a website at the start of the session which I have placed below.
