Welcome to Class 2!
Welcome back! Miss Berry is our teacher and Mrs Johnson teaches us on a Wednesday afternoon. We are very lucky to have Miss Byers as our full time teaching assistant.
This half term our PE lessons will be on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Mr Crestwell will be teaching us tennis skills on a Monday and Mrs Johnson will be doing a range of athletic activities. 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 poetry. We will be looking a range of poetry including, rhyming, limerick, shape and colour poems. We will be learning some poems and writing our own. Keep an eye in the classroom for a display of our wonderful poems!
Maths lessons will see us developing our knowledge about number and place value, addition ad subtraction facts, money and properties of shapes. Maths lessons are always very busy and the children work extremely hard! Every week we have our 'Big Maths Beat That' test and we always challenge ourselves to beat our last score.
In science, our focus this half term is all about 'Taking Care of Ourselves'. We will be looking at how to keep fit and healthy and what foods we need to look after ourselves.
Our Topic this term is 'Victorians'. We will be comparing what school was like in Victorian times and how it changed now. We will be looking and making some Victorian toys, and learning about holidaying at the seaside during the Victorian Era.
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'. All spellings link to phonic lessons that the children have each day. Children know which spelling group they are in.
Maths homework will be given out on a Thursday and will need to be completed and in school by the following Tuesday in orange homework books.
Guided reading homework is given out weekly after guided reading sessions. All homework needs to be completed in orange homework books and in school for the following guided reading session.
Remember to read for 5 minutes every night/morning to an adult.
