Class 2

 

 

 

Welcome to the Autumn Term Class 2!

I hope you all had a fantastic Summer Holiday and have enjoyed spending time at home with your family. We’re looking forward to seeing you all and hearing about all the fun things you’ve been up to.

This half term we’re excited to announce our topic will be Dinosaurs! We will be kicking off the term learning all about where dinosaurs have lived and what they looked like. We also have an exciting junk modelling project coming up where you will be making your own dinosaur lands! In Science we will be learning all about animals, including humans and comparing them to dinosaurs. 

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 Wednesdays.  They will have a spelling test every Wednesday, along with a number test for Year 1 children and a times table test for Year 2 children on a Friday.

Children will also bring home reading books every week.  Learning to read is one of the most important things 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. PE lessons will be on a Wednesday and a Friday. 

We are looking forward to another fun packed term with you!

Thank you,

Mrs Brown and Mrs Williams
