Welcome to year Two!
Mrs Cook is the main class teacher, and will be in school Monday to Thursday. Mr Churchill, a student teacher is working in the class and will be teaching some lessons over the next few weeks.
Mrs Hemingway and Mrs Hirst are the class teaching assistants, working full time with the children. Mr Sexton is also volunteering in the class and supports the children in the mornings.
Please remember that the children will be completing their SATs this half term, so please make sure that your children come to school punctually every day. Thank you.
We will be learning about Space throughout this term, focusing on the explorations of Tim Peake and considering how space exploration has changed over the past few decades. We will be looking at spacecraft and will even create our own large scale space craft together!
In maths, the children will continue to develop their calculation skills, and should be confident with simple additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions. We will be learning how to tell the time and will learn about simple fractions of objects and amounts.
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. Any additional homework is optional, but the children will be given rewards in class to celebrate their effort.
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.
