Welcome to Class 2!
Miss Berry is our teacher and Mrs Johnson teaches us on a Wednesday afternoon. Miss Byers is our full time teaching assistant and we are all very excited for this new school year!
This half term our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday and a Thursday afternoon. We will be doing hockey and developing our multi skills. All being well we will be doing PE outside this half term but due to the Cumbrian weather this may not always be the case. Please make sure that children have a full outdoor and indoor kit with them in school at all times.
This half term in English we will be focusing on non-fiction writing, looking closely at leaflets and posters and creating our own linking these to our topic work.
Maths lessons will see us developing our knowledge about number and place value, addition ad subtraction facts, fractions and measuring volume and capacity. Maths lessons are always very busy and the children work extremely hard! Every Friday we have our 'Big Maths Beat That' test and we always challenge ourselves to beat our last score.
Science lessons this term are all about habitats and plants. We will be looking at different habitats and trying to find some of these within our school grounds. When looking at plants we will be learning about and labelling different parts of a plant and what is needed for them to grow. We might even have a go at growing our own!
In Topic this term we are looking at 'Great Britain’. We will be looking closely at the 4 regions that make up Great Britain and their surrounding areas. We will locate these on a map along with some special postcards that have been sent to us from different areas. We look forward to reading where our postcards have come from!
Spellings and times tables tests will be done in class every Friday. The spellings for each half term are available at the bottom of our class page under the heading 'Spellings'.
Maths homework will be given out on a Thursday and will need to be completed and in school by the following Tuesday.
Remember to read for 5 minutes every night/morning to an adult.
