Welcome to Class 2!
Miss Berry is our teacher and Mrs Watson helps us too on a morning with Maths and Phonics. Mrs Johnson teaches us on a Wednesday afternoon. This half term we also have a teaching student, Miss Lightburn teaching us.
Welcome to the Summer term. This is a busy term and we already have lots of activities planned.
Our PE lessons will be on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. We will be focusing on cricket and gymnastics. Cricket will be outside (whatever the weather!) with qualified coaches. Gymnastics will be at Penrith Leisure Centre with qualified coaches every Thursday. We will have 5 weeks of these sessions. Please remember your outdoor PE kit (jumper and tracksuit bottoms/leggings) as well as your indoor PE kit due to the typical Cumbrian weather!
During English we will be focusing on Poetry. We will be looking at the types of poems and different Poets from a range of eras. We will be writing our poems - keep an eye out for some of our work. I hope that all children in Class 2 will try and read every night/morning to an adult - remember all we ask is for 5 minutes.
Maths lessons will see us developing our knowledge about place value, addition ad subtraction of single digit numbers,measurement and understanding properties of shape. Maths lessons are always very busy and the children work extremely hard! Every Friday we have our Big Maths Beat That test and always challenge ourselves to beat our score.
Science lessons this half term will be focusing upon 'the apprentice gardner'. We have already started to germinate some seeds - they are in the window for you to have a look at.
This term Class Two are learning all about Victorians.
Spellings and times tables homework are given out on Mondays and Numeracy homework on Fridays. Your child's spellings are available on the bottom of our class page under the heading 'Spellings'. All homework will be checked the following week.
Keep an eye on our class page for regular updates about what we have been getting up to.
