Welcome to our Year Two class page 2018-2019
Our topic for the Autumn Term is 'The Jolly Postman'. The book arrived, all wrapped up, as a surprise delivery. It looked so interesting, we decided to base our whole topic around it!
The 'Jolly Postman' delivered a letter to 'Little red Riding Hood'. We read the traditional tale and then changed some parts of the story before writing our own versions. I have been very impressed with the children's concentration during extended writing sessions and their determination to produce high quality pieces of writing - well done Year 2!
The class will have PE on a Monday and Wednesday so please ensure that PE kits are in school with all items clearly named.
The children need a water bottle and outdoor shoes in school every day.
Homework will be sent home on a Wednesday to be completed and returned the following Monday. This will include spellings linked to our Phonics and Key words along with a Maths activity and our writing focus.
Spellings will be tested on a Monday and recorded in the back of your Homework book, so please ensure these are in school every Monday.
It is important that you hear your child read regularly and discuss their reading with them to check understanding of the text. Please sign their reading diaries, adding comments when relevant.
The Year Two team are:
Mrs Kelly - Class teacher Monday - Thursday
Mrs Gomme - Class teacher Friday
Mrs Greatbatch - Teaching assistant Monday - Friday lunchtime
We would really welcome you to come and speak to us if you have any queries - no matter how big or small. Time is limited in the mornings and not particularly private, so the end of the day is preferable if it can wait.
