Welcome to Class 2!
Welcome back Class 2 - I hope you have all had an enjoyable Christmas Holiday.
A little bit about Class 2
Miss Berry is our teacher and Miss Byers helps us every morning for a couple of hours as our teaching assistant. Mrs Johnson teaches us Science on a Wednesday afternoon then Mrs Walsh teaches us some French.
In English this half term we will be looking at retelling and sequencing stories, writing recounts, looking at famous authors and writing our own stories that mimic significant authors.
In our Maths lessons we will be focusing on developing addition and subtraction skills, the importance of number and place value, multiplication and division facts and measurement to work out the length and height of an object. We will also be developing our problem solving skills in a range of practical activities.
Our Science this term is looking growing up and looking at a range of different materials. We will be looking at the different properties of materials and which ones are suitable for different purposes.
Our PE this term is ball skills (football) and we have the Action Ants coaches coming in to deliver some other multi skills sessions. PE kits will be sent home every Friday night but please make sure that they are returned on Monday mornings.
Every Friday we will do a spelling test and a times-table test.
Most of the spellings will be based on a phonic sound or spelling pattern that the children will have learnt or recapped the same week along with some high frequency words that the children will need to learn. Each week the spellings will be added to the bottom of the class page under spellings and then under their year group / phonic group. The spellings will be added to the 'spelling shed' website so the children can practice their spellings in a safe, fun and interactive way online. The more the children practice on spelling shed the more 'points' they can win!
The children will work through a range of 2s, 5s and 10 times-tables tests and will have access to mathematical resources to help if needed. The children can use the safe and fun online site 'Timestable Rockstars' to practice their current timestables.
