Welcome to the Summer Term Class 2
Welcome back Class 2! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and spent time having fun with your family and friends.
This term our topic is 'Castles', we will be learning about the history of castles and the Battle of Hastings in the first half term and then we will be focussing on geogrpahy and looking at where different castles are in the UK. We will be having a class trip to Okehampton Castle as well. In Design and Technology we will be designing and making knights shields and in Science we will be building upon the knowledge we already have about animals including humans. It is our Summer Fayre at the end of the half term so we will be busy learning a new song, along with actions, that we will perform at the fayre for everybody to see.
PE will continue to be on a Wednesday this term so please make sure you come to school in your full PE kit (green polo shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers or plimsols).
Homework is a little different this term and you will have a number of projects that you can complete over the course of the half term as well as a spelling/phonics task. Homework will continue to be given out on a Wednesday and needs to be back in school by the following Tuesday.
It is really important that you try and read at least 3 times a week at home. This doesn't have to be lots of pages at a time or necessarily your school reading book, it could just be a page or two or could be some pages from a book or magazine that you have at home that you enjoy reading. Remember to write in your reading diary when you have read and bring your reading diary into class daily for us to see. Everytime you read three times you move closer to the pot of gold on the reading rainbow!
Some of you come home with phonics pack which have all the sounds and tricky words that you have learnt so far, please try and practice these sounds and words as often as you. Please also make sure the packs are in school each week as the new sounds and tricky words you are learning will need to go in them.
We cannot wait to have a fun packed term with you, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
