Bring on summer term!
First off I would like to say well done for all your hard work in the spring term. You should all be so proud of what you achieved. Let’s continue the fabulous hard work this term. I hope you had a great Easter and got a well deserved rest.
Our topic this term is ‘our wider world’. We are going to take a trip to different places around the world like Kenya, looking at the similarities and differences in roads, transports and much more.
We will also take a deep dive into how transport has changed over time , taking a closer look at the transport history in Halwill and Ashwater. Fieldwork and observations will be carried out to look at the geography of our school grounds and learning more about the human features and physical features of our surrounding area.
In Religious World Views, Class 2 will be thinking about the questions How should we care for others and for the world, and why does it matter? We will be exploring this through the use of story and discussions on why it is important to look after our world.
This term will be extra special because of our extra curricular activities. I am happy to say we will be going swimming! This will be on Thursdays so please ensure the children have the kit they need for these lessons. As it is in the morning, there may not be time to phone for any forgotten kit to be brought in. P.E will also be in the afternoons so swim kit and P.E kits will be needed on Thursdays.
Homework will continue to be set via Class Dojo and a copy of this will be sent home in their bookbags/bags. This is to be handed in on the following Tuesday. Not too much time should be spent on the homework so it is best to spread it out across the week. Please continue to read with your child 5 times a week as we have seen great improvements when this is done consistently. Remember, the reading does not need to be the whole book but a page will still benefit. You could also each read a sentence each or read one and repeat it until they feel fluent in their reading.
Common exception words are still a focus so please continue to practise these. If you need a new sheet with the words on, let me know and a new one can be sent out.
Fraser bear is happy to be coming home again for the weekends. He has been on some fabulous adventures so far and can’t wait for more to come this term. Remember to send in pictures of what you get up to on Class Dojo if you want your adventures shared with everyone. We will continue to celebrate the star of the day if any of the adults in school think something should be celebrated and every Thursday, show and tell bags will be sent home. These are so you can bring in one item to share with the class. Cant wait to see what you bring!
In Class 2, we want to make a safe, caring and respectful environment and your childs safety and learning of utmost importance to us. If you have any questions, worries or queries, feel free to contact us on Class Dojo or send an email into the office and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible. We look forward to having a term filled with exciting learning, being creative and trying our best.
Please find timetables and planning attached below.
