Welcome to Class 2!
Welcome back Class 2 - I hope you have all had a lovely summer break.
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 understanding the purpose of labels and then researching and gathering information from a range of leaflets and the internet to help us write our our leaflets and information booklets all about Great Britain.
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 at habitats and how our world changes. We will be looking at a range of animal habitats and what animals eat when living in different habitats. We will then look at how our world around us changes through the seasons and how different habitats change as well.
Our PE this term is multi skills and athletics. 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.
