Class 2

 

Wednesday 6th September

 

Hello Class 2,

 

Welcome back! I hope that you have all had a fantastic summer holiday and are looking forward to a new school year.

Our topic for this term is history based focusing on significant people. Up until half term We will be learning about the Royal Family including comparing Queen Elizabeth II to Queen Elizabeth I. As part of this topic we will be incorporating DT and Art by completing portraits and making crowns.

For the second half of the term we will be learning about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night before moving onto Christmas celebrations.

PE will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays but children will need to have PE kit in school each day.

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and collected in the following Thursday. Spelling tests will take place on a Friday.

Reading books will be changed weekly and written into school planners. If possible, please try to read at home at least 3 x per week. All children will take part in one guided reading sessions per week in class with a focus on developing comprehension skills.

We will be working through Phase 5 and 6 throughout the year.
