2017 – 2018

It is great to see all the children again and so enthusiastic about starting in a new class! I look forward to working with you and your child over the coming year.  Mrs Carter will be teaching Class 2 RE and music on Wednesday afternoons. Mrs Baker will be working in Class 2 every morning. Mrs Wood is now working in Class 3.

 

 

Topic

Our topic in history is ‘Changes within living history’ with a particular focus on Huby Primary School, as we are celebrating 50 years of being in the current building. We will be exploring what life was like for our parents and grandparents when they were at school and comparing it to life at school now. If you have any photographs from your time in school it would be great to see and share with the children. All photos will be looked after and returned. In geography we will be learning about our local area and studying maps to help us understand more about where we live.

 

Reading Book Scheme

We will follow the same format as last year, changing books ‘as and when’. Listening to your child read on a regular basis, for example 3 or 4 times a week really helps them to progress and your help is greatly appreciated.

It will be very helpful if you could please continue to do the following:

 

  • Return the reading record to school each day with the books, even if they have not yet been read at home.
  • When you read with your child, enter the date and title of the book in the reading record and sign your name.
  • Feel free to comment on how your child has done, but please don’t feel that you must do this every time as just signing your name is fine.

 

SMIRFS

Your child will be working on their SMIRF targets. You can find these in the front of their yellow reading record book.  Like last year, the aim for your child is to complete the targets to enable them to move onto the next planet. Instant recall of mental maths is really beneficial to your child’s understanding and further progress in maths.  Please encourage your child to practise these on a regular basis. We will be recapping on the SMIRF that your child is currently on, even if it has previously been signed off, but will we not re-visit previous planets.

 

Spellings

The test will be every Friday.

A quick reminder of good ways to practise learning spellings together:

  • Read the word together out loud 3 times.
  • Look, Cover, Write.  Encourage your child to say the word by sounding it out, cover the word and then write the word, saying the sounds as they write.
  • You can practise maybe just 3 words at a time, rather than all at once.
  • If you are testing your child please say the words out of order or within a sentence.

 

PE Kit

PE for Class 2 is on a Monday and Thursday. For Autumn Term,PE on Thursdays will be taught by Zumba specialist Elaine Gilson-Fox. We will keep the PE kits at school as usual but please make sure they are clearly labelled with your child’s name. As PE on Mondays will be outside please provide your child with a warm tracksuit or jumper to wear. Please label all items of clothing that your child brings in to school.

I look forward to another fun and exciting year in Class 2. If you have any questions or queries then please pop in at the end of the school day or arrange a time for a longer appointment.
