Class 2

Welcome to Class 2 (Year 1, 2 and 3)
Welcome to our class page, here you will find lots of useful information about what our class is getting up to.  
Class teacher: Miss Adams.
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Nobbs, Mrs Smith (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and Miss Humphries (Tuesday and Thursday).
We are a bunch of Independent Iguanas, Collaborative Collies, Resilient Rhinos, Curious Chimpanzees and Reflective Raccoons! We enjoy using these learning dispositions to create a happy, friendly and enthusiastic learning environment within our classroom.
We are capable! We learn about our capabilities to help us: manage our feelings; communicate effectively; plan and problem solve; be creative; be resilient and determined; be confident and to help us know about relationships and leadership.
We use Class Dojo to celebrate our amazing work we do at school to share with parents and earn house points for our teams. 


PE during the summer term will take place on a Tuesday (cricket) and Wednesday (Arena sports coaches) afternoons, children should come into school dressed in their PE kits ready for their afternoon session. 


Wild Tribe

This half term (Summer 1) we are lucky enough to have some wild tribe sessions. These sessions will run on a Thursday afternoon, please bring appropriate clothes in a named plastic bag that the children can change into. 


Home Learning

Each half term a homework grid will be sent home. This will come out on a Friday and needs to be returned the following Thursday. On the grid, there are weekly activities (Reading, KIRFS, Times Table Rockstar's,) to complete. There is also a menu of further activities, which are linked to our wider curriculum topics to choose from to embed and extend knowledge taught within school. 



Children should be encouraged to read for 10-15 minutes at least 3 times per week. Year 1 and 2 are asked to read their Little Wandle book which is tailored to the Little Wandle coverage within their daily sessions. This book will get changed weekly following the three reading sessions your child will take part in within school time. Year 3 children are asked to read their Accelerated Reader [AR] books often to prepare for their quizzes but remember to read harder and/or easier books for fun and enjoyment as well. Children take a book home from the library weekly as a reading for pleasure book. They may not be able to read this fluently but it a book they are interested in, this book is changed every Monday afternoon. 



New spellings are given out on a Tuesday which the children are then tested on the following Tuesday. Please use the spelling menu in the front of their spelling book to give you a wide range of creative ways to practice these spellings at home.

Resources to help your child at home...
We have a big focus on handwriting this year, as a class we use pre-cursive letter formation (Year 1) and cursive letter formation (year 2/3). The children are encouraged to use this throughout their writing in all subjects to ensure neat presentation. 
Phonics / Reading
We are using Little Wandle to teach phonics and reading, here are some resources to help support your children at home.
