Welcome to Class 2's page!
Our class teacher is Mrs Hooper; other adults who support us are Miss Coole and Miss Bebbington. Mrs Gilbert also teaches us for the creative arts, including Wild Tribe.
We are lucky enough this term to be joined by Miss Lucy Pearce, a BEd 3 student from Plymouth University.
Our topic for the first part of the Spring Term is called 'Land Ahoy!' We will be mind mapping what we already know and what we would like to find out about Pirates, talking about what a pirate is, sorting facts and fiction about pirates, talking about famous pirates, imagining what life would be like on board a Pirate Ship, explaining all of the different jobs on a Pirate Ship, investigating the different symbols on a map, using these symbols to create our own map, investigating the map of school and using the map of the school to create our own treasure quest.
Our first English text will be 'Kassim and the Greedy Pirate' - A traditional beat the baddie tale.
Our school focus for class reads this half term is Classic Authors/texts. Our class read this half term is Enid Blyton's first Magic Faraway Tree adventure - The Enchanted Wood. When Joe, Beth and Frannie move to a new home, an Enchanted Wood is on their doorstep. However, when they discover the Faraway Tree, that is the beginning of many magical adventures!
We will also be reading lots of other books linked to Pirates and map reading.
It is going be fantastic sharing these topic linked stories together.
In maths we will be really focusing on number, particularly place value, multiplication and division. We will be using a variety of different methods and resources to support our learning. Please have a look at our calculation policy for some of these methods. During Wild Tribe, Mrs Gilbert is going to focusing on measures.
A copy of this half terms home learning grid is in your child homework book and on the home learning section of the website. 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.
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 me or a member of our team at the end of the school day.
Thank you for your support!
