Welcome to our class page!
Our class teacher is Mrs Daley and we also have Miss Mothersole in with us to help us. This term we are very lucky to have Miss Amjad with us too who is in her third year of learning to be a teacher!
For the beginning of Summer Term we will be entering the world of wildlife and thinking all about the jungle/savannah. We will be learning about all of the animals from these areas and looking at climates too.
We will continue to make ourselves more aware of the world around us by watching the BBC Newsround and reading First News. This will support our speaking and listening skills as well as helping us gain knowledge by identifying countries, continents and oceans.
In Writing this term we will be focussing on some non-fiction writing and thinking about fact files.
English: we are looking at fact files this week and thinking about different African animals. We will be linking our English to geography and comparing our lives to people's lives in Kenya.
Maths: Year 2 are busy doing their end of key stage one assessments and year 1 are thinking about fractions including halves.
Please visit our page regularly to see what we are up to!
Our Christian value this half term is friendship.
PE: Our PE days are Wednesday and Monday. Please practise getting changed at home so you can be super speedy in school!
Please ensure that the children have their PE kit in school every day as we try to keep the timetable flexible so that we can make the most of the weather and other opportunities to teach PE.
Star of the Week: Emilia
Dojo Winner: Harlan
Hot Chocolate Friday Winner: Lily M
If your child reads at least four times a week for ten weeks throughout the term then they will receive a certificate which they can proudly show off. So please remember to write in the partnership book about the reading your child has been doing!
Homework is to be completed bi-weekly. It will go out on a Monday to be returned on the following Monday-ready for Mrs Daley to go through with the class that week.
Spellings will now be sent home on a Monday, ready for a test the following Friday. We will be practising some of the spellings in school, but, as always, your support would be greatly appreciated with the practise of this.
A huge congratulations to all of the children who spent time learning a poem. I was so proud of the children's performances in front of the whole school on Friday. The children going through to the finals at Cox Green School in March are :
