Class 2

In Class 2, children in Years 1 and 2 enjoy learning in our spacious classroom where there is plenty of room for investigative play as well as serious work. Miss Jackson and Mrs Corner love thinking of creative ways to introduce new learning and we particularly love our easy access to our beautiful outdoor area.

Dear Parents/Carers,

Class 2 have all made a fantastic start to the new school year and they are all thoroughly enjoying exploring their new classroom and routines.

 

During this half term, the children are going to be involved in a wide range of exciting and creative learning opportunities throughout all subjects of the KS1 curriculum, which we are very much looking forward to.

 

Each half term in school will be linked around a particular topic that the children are interested in and have chosen. This half term, the children have chosen to learn about ‘outer space' and as far as possible a strong link will be made between the curriculum subjects and this topic. The children are already exploring this topic within their subject lessons and they are very enthusiastic and engaged about their learning.

As well as our English work, the children will continue with separate phonics lessons and spelling lessons and will be read to daily, so please make sure your child’s reading diary and reading book are in school.

As part of our English this half term, the children will be exploring a range of genres, which will also link in nicely with their learning of grammar and punctuation. This half term the children will be focussing on a history link with Neil Armstrong! 

  • Space Journals: Neil Armstrong focus
  • Space poems: Neil Armstrong focus
  • Writing Letters to NASA - Neil Armstrong focus 
  • Writing instructions
  • Space story 

As Mathematicians, we have lots of exciting maths to learn about and we continuously use our maths provision areas to support the children’s learning in this area.  This half term the children will be focusing on:

  • Number and Place value
  • Multiplication and Division 
  • Shape 
  • Measuring  

Our science topic this term is ‘materials' and the children will be given plenty of opportunities to explore materials and to investigate which materials are suited best for a certain object. 

As always, the children will be exploring their foundation subjects and this term they will be:

  • RE: Celebrations 
  • Art and Design:  Explore a variety of techniques and use experiences as inspiration.
  • Geography:  comparing countries 
  • E-Safety
  • PSHCE 

In PE this half term, the children have some excellent lessons planned that they are very excited about. The children will have alternate PE and swimming lessons on a Wednesday and Thursday.  The children will also have 1 hour per week from specialist PE coaches from ultimate soccer school, who will focus on games and developing your children’s skills. Your child we now need their PE kit every Thursday and Friday. 

 

We are all very excited about this  term and we are looking forward to seeing your children learn new skills, grow and explore the world around them.

Thank you for your support and if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you,

Miss Jackson and Mrs Corner
