Welcome to Class 2
This Autumn half term, our topic is 'Bodmin Moor'. In Literacy, we will be studying the story of ‘Stone Age Boy’, and using Pie Corbett's Talk4Writing approach to create our own tales! We will also be writing instructions, as well as looking at poetry from various poets. Our knowledge of poetry is building every day with our Poem of the Day Project that will continue through this year!
In Maths this term, we are focusing on place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division using Power Maths and White Rose, as well as times tables practice.
In our afternoon sessions, we will be studying Bodmin Moor – Stone Age to Iron Age in history, as well as exploring in outdoor learning. This term, we will be learning all about making fires and geographical navigation! We will also be exploring rocks and soils in Science and creating landscapes with watercolour in art!
In ICT, we are learning all about internet safety using Purple Mash, as well as word processing so we are all able to access our learning at home too. In Spanish, we are focussing on revising greetings and classroom language, los números 1-31, months and dates, seasons, birthdays, parties and la Navidad!
Thank you for your continued support with the children's learning at home - please keep up reading every day and record reading daily. (If you need further support with this, please see ClassDojo for example reading record entries referring to our class use of VIPERS for comprehension or contact me via ClassDojo message or email - email@example.com)
There is opportunity for your child to write a book review in their reading record when they have completed a book (Before or after they have completed their AR Book Quiz in school). When your child reads in school, it will be recorded in a reading folder in the classroom, the reading record will still be checked daily, so please continue to use it for communication about reading.
On the back cover of the reading record, you will find your child's Sumdog login. We would like Sumdog practice to be completed for at least 30 minutes a week.
Homework this term will be -
Daily Reading (Recorded in reading book & Book Reviews where appropriate)
At least 30 minutes of Sumdog learning
Weekly spellings - children will be taught spelling rules and will be revising these rules as well as spellings each week (we will review each Thursday)
Homework books will be handed out every Friday (Homework due in on Thursdays) Children need to pick one piece of homework from the grid per week.
Children will be expected to log in to Class Dojo regularly to keep up to date with class information and homework.
Class Dojo will be used for home-school communication alongside email. You will be able to view the class story where reminder messages, class information and homework will be posted.
Your child will be able to login using their individual QR code that has been sent home or use the "home login instructions" that have been sent to each parent via ClassDojo.
If you would like to come and have a talk to me about what is happening in class, please email me - firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me via ClassDojo.
Thank you for your support,
