Welcome back Class 2!
I hope you all had a lovely summer 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 Superheroes. We will be kicking off the term with a superhero hunt, and throughout the term will look at comic strips, write our own superhero stories, discover some real life superheroes and learn some superhero moves!
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 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 Thursdays. They will have a spelling test every Friday, along with a times table test for Year 2 children and a number skills test for Year 1s. Along with this they will also have a variety of different projects linked to our topic to choose from. They need to complete 3 of these projects and bring them during the last week of this half term.
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’.
As a new initiative for this year we will be taking part in a Daily Run, where the children will all run for 10 minutes. If children do not have black trainers as part of their daily uniform they need to change into their trainers or daps first thing in the morning when they come to school. Children will need PE kits in for normal PE lessons; please leave these in school during term time.
We are really looking forward to getting to know all of you over the Autumn term!

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