Welcome to Class 2!
Welcome to our class page. All of the children are doing really well and are excited about all of their learning. Here you will find information about staffing, routines and homework.
Mr Pengelly teaches Class Two all day on Monday, all day on Wednesday and on Tuesday and Friday mornings. On Tuesday afternoons, Mrs Liddicott takes the class for PE and art. Mrs Yates teaches the class on Friday afternoons and all day on Thursday. Mrs Chaffer and Mrs Parker work in the class as teaching assistants.
PE lessons will be on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Children’s PE kit should be kept in school at all times if possible. We sometimes do outdoor learning on Wednesday afternoons. We will let you know the weeks during which this is taking place.
Please try to read with your child as regularly as possible. This does not always need to be a school reading book (anything that your child enjoys is a good starting point!). Discussing what your child reads with them is also hugely beneficial in developing their understanding.
Times tables: Learning times tables has a significant impact on children’s progress in maths. Throughout the year we will be practising different tables in class, but any time spent on this at home will really help your child. Children will be given regular opportunities to demonstrate what they have learned and there will be a class reward system for each time a child learns a new times table.
In order to support maths learning we have subscribed to Times Tables Rock Stars which is an online platform to help children learn tables and number facts.
You will find below the statutory spellings for your child’s year group (Year 3 spellings are combined with Year 4 in the National Curriculum so they will be covered over the next two years). We will be practising these throughout the year in class and again, any help that you can give your child in practising these will support their learning in class.
If you have any questions, or would like to discuss anything with us. Please feel free to contact us.
