Welcome

Welcome to Class 2's page!

 

Our class teacher is Mrs Hooper; other adults who support us are Mrs Duckworth and Miss Coole.

We are also lucky enough to be joined by Miss Andrew, a BEd 3 student from Plymouth University  this term.

 

Our topic for the second half of the Spring Term is 'Green Fingers' There will be a focus on plants and growing, but please see our topic web for other areas of the curriculum that we will be covering throughout this half term. 

 

In maths there will be a real focus on fractions with the use of lots of visual representations and concrete resources.

 

On March 12th we will be visiting the Eden Project. This will involve the children taking part in a workshop called ‘Ready, Steady, Sow’. The children will learn effective ways to explore and observe plants close up, by investigating seeds from around the world and making the connection from plant to seed. Each child plants a seed and finds out how to care for them so that they thrive at home after the workshop. The workshop takes place in the Spiral Garden or in one of our classrooms in the Core education centre. Afterwards we will be visiting the Rainforest and Mediterranean Biomes, as well as some of the outdoor gardens.

 

Wild tribe will be happening weekly this half term. The focus will be outdoor maths, particularly measures. Please make sure Wild Tribe kits are in school each week. 

 

A copy of this half terms home learning grid is in your child homework book. Learning can be recorded in any format in addition to your homework book (e.g photos, models etc). A copy of the homework grid can also be found in the Year 2 home learning section on the website.

 

Reading is really important and we want our children to develop a love of reading and books. Please try and read with your child every night. Please can you record in their reading record book when you have listened to them read. 

 

Our online blog page will be kept as up-to-date as possible, with photographs uploaded so you can see what we are getting up to! Please feel free to also have a look at our half-term overview and weekly timetable (in the curriculum section).

 

If you have any questions, queries or problems throughout the year then please feel free to come and see us or a member of our team at the end of the school day.

 

Thank you for your continued support!

Mrs Hooper
