About Class 2
Class 2 is made up of Year 1 and 2 pupils in a mixed aged setting. Class 2 is taught by Mrs Hayward and Miss Sumner. Mrs Hayward and Miss Sumner are experienced teachers who love to make learning fun in a stimulating environment. They are supported by Mrs Grant and together they help to make sure all pupils achieve the very best they can and most importantly, they enjoy school!
Reading books should be read each night, please help your child to read and enjoy their book and write a comment in their diary to show us that your child has read. For every 5 reads a week, children get entered into a class raffle to win a new book to keep! Reading books will be changed weekly if they are brought in with the diary signed by an adult. Lots of children enjoy reading through Bug Club and this could be used if your child has finished their books. The children are listened to reading in school throughout the week in Guided Reading activities and English tasks.
Homework diaries are checked on a Friday but should be in school daily. Homework will be in the form of half termly projects linked to their learning in class, assigned during the last week of each half term.
Spellings are given out on a Friday and pupils will be tested on the following Friday. Spelling lists are allocated weekly in the Monster Phonics Spelling book, please encourage your child to practise at home, both verbally and in written form. Spelling scores will be recorded weekly in the Monster Phonics Spelling book. If you would like to support your child further, you will find a list of words that the children are expected to know by the end of KS1 in the back of their homework diaries.
Please ensure your child has a labelled water bottle in school each day. Water bottles will be sent home daily to be washed and should be returned on the following day. The children are asked to place their water bottles in a designated place as they come into school in the morning. Children have access to their water throughout the day and are encouraged to drink regularly.
Please ensure ALL school clothing, shoes, bags and water bottles are clearly labelled with both forename and surname. Children will be encouraged to store clothing in their personal lockers when they are not wearing it.
PE will take place on a Tuesday and Friday each week. One of these sessions will be taught by a specialist PE teacher. Full PE kits are required in school each day and can be kept in children’s lockers. These will be sent home each half term for washing.
