Welcome to Nichols Class – Year 2
Class Teacher: Mrs Quinton (Mon, Tue, Wed am) and Mrs Wiles (Wednesday pm, Thursday, Friday)
We are very excited about our topic this term! The big question we will be exploring is, Why do we love to be beside the seaside? This is a cross- curricular topic which will cover aspects of geography, art, history and music. We will be learning about lifeboats and lighthouses, comparing seaside holidays then and now and learning all about the coast. We will be basing our English work on the wordless picture book Flotsam by David Wiesner. We are especially looking forward to our visit to the Sensory Theatre at Fitzwaryn School for our seaside experience.
In maths we do our Beat That Challenge on a Wednesday and our Learn Its on a Friday. These sheets are 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 send home five personalised spellings for your child to learn. These are 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. Please ensure all uniform and PE kit 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.
