Class 2

 

Welcome Back!

I hope that you all had a lovely holiday and are looking forward to the Spring Term.

Our topic for this term is Geography based. We will be learning about Hartland and Clovelly. Within this topic we will be reading maps, planning routes, following directions and researching the history of some Hartland shipwrecks and the Clovelly donkeys!

Our English and Maths work will link to this topic where possible. In English we are starting with a poetry block before moving onto non-fiction and then story. We will also be completing some extended writing through topic including diary and letter writing.

In Maths we will be continuing to follow the Rising Stars pathway using elicitation and cold tasks to continually assess the children’s knowledge.

PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure that children have the correct kit for both indoor and outdoor sessions.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected in the following Thursday. There is a box in the classroom for homework books.

The reading raffle will continue this term. Children need to read seven times over a two week block to earn a ticket in the raffle. Please try to read regularly with your child at home as it supports phonics and comprehension work completed in school.

Tuesday evenings will continue to be parents night so please book an appointment with Donna if there is anything that you would like to discuss.

Mrs Cloke
