Welcome back Class 2!
I hope that you have all had a lovely Easter Holiday and are ready to work hard and learn lots!
Our topic for this term is Our World. We will be learning about the environment and how care for our surroundings. We will find out about David Attenborough and the conservation work that he is involved in as well as researching endangered animals.
Each Friday morning Class 2 will have Forest School with Mrs Bale. All children will need to come to school in suitable clothing and footwear for outdoor based learning. They will then need school uniform to change into after lunch.
This Term Year 2 will be undertaking KS1 SATs and Year 1 will take the Phonics Screening test. SATs will take place the week commencing Monday 21st May and the Phonics Screening will be the week commencing Monday 11th June.
PE will continue to be on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school so that they are able to take part.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected in the following Thursday.
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.
Parent meetings will be available on a Tuesday night. Please book a time with Donna at the office if there is anything that you would like to discuss.
We will be working through Phase 5 and 6 throughout the year.
