Miss Curtis is our teacher and Mrs Stephens is our teaching assistant. We look forward to working with the children and their parents throughout the school year.
Class 2 is shared by children in Years 1 and 2
We will be learning lots of new things through different and varied topics and taking part in many exciting activities.
We have high expectations of everyone in our class and everyone is encouraged to work hard and to do their very best.
Amelia proved to be a fantastic first, ‘Reader of the week’ reading ‘The Snail and the Whale’ fluently and confidently. Well done!
Spring Term 2019
This term children will learn about the Great Fire of London as an event beyond living memory. They will also consider ways in which we find out about the past using a variety of sources, for example the diary of Samuel Pepys and contemporary art. They will be introduced to thinking about the reliability of sources.
Spellings will continue to be handed out on Mondays in preparation for testing on the following Monday. I attach a pdf of the weekly spellings on the class 2 page of the school website every week in case the spellings get lost.
Maths homework will be sent home on Mondays and needs to be returned by Friday of the same week so that I can mark and prepare books for handing back the following week. Maths homework will be for Year 2's only this term. ( I have included a maths booklet detailing all of the methods and knowledge the children will need for their upcoming SATs).
PE will be on Wednesday and Friday and children will need outdoor PE kits as we will be doing hockey for this term. (Please send gloves and scarves too).
Woodland school is now on Thursday afternoons.
Daily phonics, spelling and cursive handwriting lessons will continue and this term we are learning to join our handwriting.
Parents evening is during the week commencing 1st April 2019 and I look forward to seeing you all then. In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me .
Best wishes and a Happy New Year.
Callow End Christingle.
Class 2 have had a wonderful time reading ‘Coming Home’ by Michael Morpurgo. They have learnt about migrating robins from Scandinavia and the perilous journey they make every year to return to the UK.
They have made ‘ bird cakes’ to feed the Callow End robins over the Winter and have each written a set of instructions on how to make them during literacy lessons .
They have made their own robins from felt in design and technology and used them to create a colourful display border for our working wall.
This afternoon we went out into the beautiful new sensory garden and hung their bird feeders from the trees. We then waited quietly in the shelter for our first red-breasted visitor , the children were enthralled and I have never seen them so quiet!
Well done Class 2 , what a wonderful effort you have all made and how lucky your little robins are.
