Spelling homework: we continue to send a spelling homework each week, due back on Mondays. If your child doesn't bring theirs home please ask for another one!
wc 19th June
In English this week we start a unit looking at poetry. First, we will look at Acrostic poetry and have a go at writing some of our own, before going on to look at Calligrams.
In Maths we are looking at place value, building on our knowledge of 2 digit numbers and starting to explore 3 digit numbers.
In topic work we will look at different climates around the world, then consider which animals live in different climates.
In PE, on Tuesdays, Mr Simms is continuing athletics (hopefully outside as the weather improves). On Thursdays, we will be running for the Golden Mile and practising mixed skills and races in readiness for sports day.
Letters and Forms
Miss. Dawson teaches in 2W and Mrs. Flatters in 2F, with teaching assistants Mrs. Wallace and Mrs. Reeve. On Tuesday afternoons Mrs. Cartwright and Mr. Simms teach the Year 2 classes. Mrs. Cartwright teaches in 2F on Thursdays.
Children will take part in guided reading activities every day in school, two of these will be adult-led sessions. Each week your child will bring home a guided reading book and a choice book (these are levelled books which the children choose themselves). Please use the reading diary to let us know how your child is getting on at home.
In addition to reading we will send home tasks which will support our work in English and Maths or Topic. We are now sending home spelling homework each week.
PE and Forest Schools
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. We plan to get outside as much as possible for PE so please could you send in a pair of outside PE shoes/trainers if you haven’t already. As the weather gets colder you may also wish to send in jogging bottoms and an extra jumper.
We will let you know when Forest Schools kit is needed as this won’t be a regular slot.
Please bring in bookbags, a water bottle and coat every day. We will send home book bags each evening. Children do not need to bring a pencil case!
Medicines and Illness
Please ask at the office if you have any queries regarding medicines or need to update your child’s healthcare plan. Please remember to leave 48 hours clear of sickness/diarrhoea before returning to school.
As we don't check bookbags, please let your child know if there is a letter or slip that they need to hand to their teacher in the morning. Thank you.
As always, if you have any queries or concerns please come and talk to us, or send in a note or email to the office.
Miss. Dawson and Mrs. Flatters
