Welcome to year Two!
Mrs Cook is the main class teacher, and will be in school Monday to Friday.
Mrs Hemingway is the class teaching assistant, working full time with the children.
‘This is Yorkshire’ is our current topic. The children will learn how to look at maps and use different map and positional language, such as the compass points, left, right and clockwise. They will follow and create their own treasure hunts around the school grounds, and explore our local area through a walk to identify different features in Worsbrough, then create a large map using photographs that they have taken on their walk.
In maths, the children will continue to develop their basic number and place value skills, and build on their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills.
Homework is a task sheet that children can complete in any order in their own time over the half term. Homework will be marked and celebrated with the class every week.
Weekly spellings will also be given to the children – please encourage your child to practise these as often as possible.
Reading books can be changed as often as you would like to – there will be a BOOK PRIZE! every week for one of the children that has read their book every day.
