Welcome to Class 2.
We have started a class blog to share with everyone some of the things we have done in class.
Make sure you leave a comment , it would be lovely to hear from you.
Our Teacher this year is Mrs Hillary and our teaching assistant is Mrs Williamson.
Every other Friday Mrs Hillary has PPA time and Mrs Norman will lead the class that day.
There are 27 children in our class, 4 are in Year 1 and 16 are in Year 2 and 7 are in Year 3.
Monday and Wednesday are our PE days. PE kits should be brought in on Monday and kept in school until Friday.
Tuesday is times table test day for Year 3's only.
Wednesday is spelling day - Please make sure all spellings are completed and returned for a Wednesday.
Friday is reading book day - Please make sure the previous book is returned to school for a new book to be issued.
Our topic this term is 'Houses, Holes and Hideouts' We are using Art and Design and Technology to explore our own imaginations and to see what wonderful things we can create using the outdoors to help us!
In the beginning we will be exploring how we can make things move, using different mechanisms. We will put these into our own pictures. We will then move onto explore the Artist Joan Miro, who used his own imagination and experiences to create pictures, sculptures and models.
We will use our topic to lead our English lessons, using stories to develop our own work.
In Science we will explore the seasons and the changes that take place.
In PE we are doing Games and Dance. In Dance we are following our topic of 'In my Imagination' and using our imagination to think of different ways of moving.
In the weeks leading up to Christmas we will begin to prepare for our Christmas Play! Watch this space!
Every Friday Ted will choose someone to go home with for the weekend. Ted loves adventures and spending time with the children from class 2. Children can draw pictures and write about their time with Ted to be shared with the class, when returned on the Monday.
Please encourage your child to write about their time with Ted and please do not do anything out of your ordinary routine.
Enjoy and please return on Monday!
Who's been messy in my room!?
Over the next two weeks Class 1 and 2 will be investigating what has happened in the classroom and writing their own stories to match the crime scene.
Let's hope we find who the culprit is! Watch this space ......
