Welcome to Class 2
Welcome to our class page where you can find out about all the fun and exciting things we have been doing. We enjoy learning lots of new things in class 2. We always ask lots of questions and are very enthusiastic about our learning. We are also a very helpful class and we always try and help out our friends which make class 2 a wonderful place to learn. The staff working with your child this year will be Miss Booth and Miss Loach.
PE: Please can you make sure that your child brings in their PE kit on a Monday and that it is left in school for the week. Children’s PE includes black shorts, a white T-shirt and either trainers or plimsols.
Reading at home: Please can you make sure that you read with your child at home for a short time every day and make sure this is recorded in their reading diaries.
Homework: Homework is set on a Friday and needs to be completed by the following Wednesday. Your child will also need to practise their times tables and spellings as they will have a test every Wednesday. There will also be creative homework at the beginning of every half term whereby the children will need to complete all tasks by a specific date (see homework books for more details). Please can you make sure you sit with your child and support them with this.
Please read every day with your child and write this in their diary. Your child will bring a book home in their folder from their tag. We enjoy regular visits to the library and would love you to join us so that you can choose extra books for your child to enjoy. We have reading prizes for the 3 children who have read the most during each half term.
Maths - Your child will need to practise their times tables. There will be a weekly test.
Spellings - Each week your child will receive a list of spellings to learn at home. Please practise them regularly with your child. They will be tested every week please check your child’s spelling book to see how they have done.
Creative homework - this will be sent home at the start of every half term. Please select one activity to complete each week.
If you require any help or advice please come and see me at the beginning or end of the school day.
