SmileWelcome to Class 2!Smile

We are very excited about the new term and our topic
Marvellous Me!  

We will be finding out how our bodies work, where we live and what makes us special.

Organisation:  PE will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays this term.  Please ensure than named kit is always in school.

Muddy Mondays:  On Mondays we will be learning in the Secret Garden.  Please ensure that your child brings named wellies and clothes for muddy activities to school on these days.

Dates for your Diary
Key dates and important information are always sent out via the school newsletter, but here are a few dates for the Autumn Term.

Thursday 20th September         Fun Run
Wednesday 17th October 9.10 - 10.15am         Open Classroom    

Homework Arrangements
Reading is incredibly important.  The children are becoming more independent and would benefit from questions and discussions about their reading books.  Please read with your child at least three times a week, and sign their reading diary.  We will learn spellings each week; and these will be checked on a Thursday.  The spellings will be words with a certain rule alongside the list of common exception words that the Year 2s need to learn.

We are using Abacus maths games as homework, along with key number facts.  
(If Internet access is difficult at home, provision can be made at school for these games to be completed.)
