Welcome back Class 2!
I hope you all had a great Christmas holiday, we’re looking forward to hearing about all the fun things you’ve been up to.
This half term we’re excited to announce our Topic will be Wriggle and Crawl. We will be kicking off the term with a minibeast hunt, and will take part in a workshop at Rosemoor on the 23rd January.
If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to book an appointment with the office to see us on a Monday.
Homework this term will continue to include spellings to learn linked to the phonics or spelling patterns we have been looking at during the week, and children will also have a list of topic based projects they can choose from to carry out throughout the half term. Year 2 children will also have times tables to practice. Homework will be given out on Fridays to all children and must be handed in on Wednesdays. They will have a spelling test every Thursday or Friday, along with a number test for Year 1 children and a times table test for Year 2 children.
Children will also bring home reading books every week. Learning to read is one of the most important your child is learning at the moment – it means they can access any information, not just in school but in general life. Please read with your child daily; 10 minutes a day is much better than a long session a week. Children who read regularly will be entered into the school ‘Reading Raffle’.
We will be continuing the Daily Run this term so please ensure children have either black trainers as school shoes or trainers to change into. Children will need PE kits in for normal PE lessons; please leave these in school during term time.

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