Welcome to Nichols Class – Year 2
Class Teacher: Mrs Quinton (Mon, Tue, Wed am) and Mrs Wiles (Wednesday pm, Thursday, Friday)
In term 4 we will be exploring the big question, How can we grow our own salad? This is a science based cross- curricular topic where we will be learning all about plants.
Our work in English will centre around the picture book The Flower by John Light. We will also be looking at information texts. We are having a real focus on presentation and handwriting throughout this term.
In maths we will continue to follow the Big Maths approach and maths mastery. Our focus this term is on shape and fractions.
In maths we will be doing our Beat That Challenge on a Wednesday and our Learn Its on a Friday. These sheets will be photocopied and sent home so that you can work on them with your child. Please work with your children on these challenges.
Every week we will be sending home five personalised spellings for your child to learn. These will be sent home on a Monday, to be tested the following Monday. The Year 1/2 common exception words that your child brings home are words that they did not spell correctly in our spelling assessment. Some children are now able to spell all of the Year 1/2 common exception words. These children will bring home spellings related to particular spelling rules that need to be learnt in Year 2. Please support your child with learning their spellings.
Please remember that PE kits need to be in school all week. As we are still experiencing cold weather please make sure your child has tracksuit bottoms and a sweatshirt so that they can stay warm during outdoor PE. Please ensure all uniform and PE kits is clearly labelled with your child’s name. We do not keep any lost property in class.
Please remember that every child needs to bring a filled water bottle to school each day.
Please do let us know if you have any questions at all. After school is always better than the morning for a chat, as the mornings are very busy.
