Class 2 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Class 2.
We are a mixed age range class of 24 children. We have 14 Y2s and 10 Y3s.
Our teachers in Class 2 are Mr Davies and Mrs McBride on a Thursday morning.
Our teaching assistants are Mrs Booth every morning from Monday to Thursday and Mrs O'Dowd who joins us on Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings.
Our P.E sessions are on Thursday mornings with Mrs McBride. Children should come to school in their PE kit, and should have footwear suitable for use on the field and indoors. In the first half term, we are swimming at Market Drayton pool. This will take place on Wednesday afternoons for 5 weeks. Children should bring swimming kit and towel. They can wear a -shirt over their costume if they wish. Goggles can be worn but are not essential.
On Thursday afternoons we have our Forest School lessons where Mrs Booth leads the children in their activities. Amongst many cross-curricular activities, children practise making shelters, learn how to use knots to join sticks together, make paint from natural materials and learn about plants as well as experiencing self initiated play in the mud kitchen. Please can you ensure your child/children have the appropriate waterproof, warm clothing and wellies (all named).
Homework for the first half term is a project based around our topic of the Tudors. We also have weekly Spelling Shed activities to help us prepare for our weekly spelling test and a MyMaths task and times table practice. Homework tasks will be set on a Monday to be handed in on the following Monday.
We would also like children to read with an adult at home at least three times a week. Children will earn a star on their reading rocket every time they read at home with an adult. Regular readers will be entered into a draw each half term for a book prize.
Children should bring a named water bottle with them each day and a coat, as we move into the colder weather.
Mr Davies and Mrs Booth
