Welcome Back to School!
We are starting the year with we a topic called 'World Wonderer' To launch into this topic we have been reading a book called...
Here We Are' - Notes For Living On Planet Earth by Oliver Jeffers
In fact the whole school is reading this book as a way into feeling like we all belong to the same school, same community and same world even though we are separated by distance at the moment. This book links well with another text we are reading about the journey of a pebble. Our English, R.E and PSHCE work is based on these two texts. At the moment, we will not be sending school books home for the children to read, but do encourage your child to read something each night. Year 2 and 3 children should still read aloud to you and spend some time talking about the text and asking questions.
Please find the spellings to learn lists below. These will be updated each week. Children are introduced to the new spellings each Monday and will undertake a check up on the previous week's list on the next Monday.
In Science, the children will be learning about animals and offspring to begin with, then on to looking at skeletons and muscles. In Geography, the children will be learning about volcanoes with Mrs. Pearson.
Our focus in maths is on place value and then moving on to addition and subtraction. Please find the knowledge organisers below. We are also teaching strategies to help to develop quick mental maths and recall of key facts. More on this later.
P.E. takes place on a Tuesday and Thursday with Simon Carson Sports and on Wednesday Football skills with James Lofthouse. Please make sure your child has a P.E. in school including warmer clothes as the weather becomes cooler and damper. All items in the P.E. kit must be named. The children will participate in 'Fit in Fifteen' exercise sessions each day as part of their morning beak.
We are doing well with our new routines to help us keep safe. The children wash their hands regularly, have their own cup for the day and are trying their best to play together, respectful of staying in a space and not touching each other.
Kind regards to you from the Class 2 team (Mrs. Shaw - Monday to Wednesday Miss. Wilkinson - Thursday and Friday Mrs. Pearson HLTA everyday)
P.S. A big thank you to all of you who have brought in summer holiday diaries and theme park projects. They look amazing. We are gradually working our way through sharing them with the class...it might take a while to get to yours...but we will!
This week we are looking at the graphemes (letter/s) representing the phoneme (sound)
