Welcome to Class 2
During Autumn Term 2 we will be learning about the following topics...
Maths: Numbers and the four calculations: addition, subtraction, multipliation & division.
English: Narrative and instructional writing will be based around Traditional Tales and some with a twist.
Phonics: Recap of Phase 5 and applying in all our subjects.
Reading: Guided Reading takes place daily in a carousel with children working with an adult, in pairs, groups or independently. Therefore, as children will be reading daily, please ensure their reading wallet contains their reading record and book/s everyday.
Science: Healthy eating and human body growth with various investigations.
PE: This is linked to our healthy bodies work in science.
Art & Design: We will be looking at creating portraits and discussing portraits made by various artists from around the world.
Design & Technology: We will be linking this to our writing and Science because will be looking at healthy smoothies.
Music: We will be looking at rythm and body sounds.
RE: We will be learning all about the Christian Christmas with daily worship held in classrooms.
PSHE: This will be developed aound Healthy Minds and Healthy lifestyles using our school values as the core.
PE: This is taught on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Children need their PE kit in school everyday please. Remember to add some warm clothing as it is getting colder now such as jogging bottoms and a warm top too. Also, can you add some extra socks too, thanks. Children will come home in their kit on a Friday for washing, as per COVID-19 restrictions currently in place.
Spellings: They will be tested and given out on a Thursday. Please practise their words in their Spelling Homework books, out loud and writing them in sentences. Children will be learning either Tricky and High Frequency Words or specific spelling rules.
Reading: In their reading bags daily must be their book/s, along with their reading record. Please remember to sign their reading record every time you read with them at home. This ensures they get as much practice as possible and achieve more Class Dojos. Also, please note, any text they read from can be noted in their record as it's still reading and they will earn Dojos for it. Children can change their book as needed, once they have read it at home as well as in school.
Homework: This is usually given out every Friday for collection by the following Thursday at the latest. Again, children can earn Dojos for completing their homework. It may consist of phonics, maths comprehension or a mixture of these. Any questions, as always, just give me a shout on Class Dojos or by the class email firstname.lastname@example.org.
