Class 2 2017 - 2018
Welcome to Class 2.
Hi everyone! Welcome back!
We are a mixed age range class of 17 children. We have 7 Y2s, 7 Y3s and 3 Y4s.
Our teachers in Class 2 are Miss Birch and Mrs Mason on a Monday morning. We are also lucky enough to have Miss Porter with us until the 10th July, who will be teaching alongside Miss Birch.
Our teaching assistants are Mrs Booth (every morning except Tuesday and on a Monday afternoon), Mrs Pennill (All day Tuesday and Friday morning) and Mrs O'Dowd (every Wednesday and children also work with Mrs O'Dowd as soon as they enter school).
Our P.E sessions are now on a Monday afternoon a Thursday afternoon with Activ Sports. Please make sure your children have their P.E. kits (named) in school.
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.
Homework will be due in each Monday morning. For the first half term the children have a half-term project in addition to spellings, reading and times tables. For the second half term, pupils will manage their own homework through the suggested ideas given by the teacher in addition to spellings, reading and times tables. Details are clearly set out in the new homework books. For each piece of homework children are awarded 3 dojos.
We would also like children to read with an adult at home at least three times a week. Children will earn 3 dojos for every 3 reads and a raffle ticket with their name will be entered into our 3 reads pot.
It is becoming very warm and sunny outside. Could you please ensure children have a sun hat and a water bottle in school everyday. Please ensure there are named. We often go outside, so please ensure your child is wearing or has suncream available for them to apply.
