Welcome to Nichols Class – Year 2
Class Teacher: Mrs Smith and Mrs Summers
TAs: Ms Geraghty & Ms Archer
Our topics this term are…
‘What was the Titanic made out of?’
Initially we will be finding out about our namesake Grace Nichols, and then we will be learning about her work.
From week three, we will be beginning our Titanic topic. We will consider the journey the ship made, find out about what life may have been like on board the ship and then we will consider the different materials which would have been used to make Titanic. We will be using a range of non-fiction texts to help to find out a range of information.
In Maths we will be learning about place value and shape.
Please find below an overview of our curriculum for this term.
In maths we will continue to practise our Learn Its. These sheets are photocopied and will be sent home so that you can work on them with your child. In addition to this, the children will be set Maths Family Toolkit homework. This will be given every two weeks and it will be set on a Monday and due in one week later to allow children one week to complete it.
Every week we send home five personalised spellings for your child to learn, please spend time helping your child to learn these – the car can be a great place to do this!
The most important thing you can do at home with your child is to share books together. Please hear your child read at least five times each week and continue to read more challenging stories to your children. Reading at home doesn’t just have to be reading from the coloured banded books, it could be anything appropriate that your child is interested in. Developing a love of reading is key.
Please remember that every child needs to bring a filled water bottle to school each day. As the weather gets cooler and wetter, please ensure that your child has a coat in school.
Wellies and PE kits should be in school every day, however for term one, or PE lessons will be on Wednesday and Friday. Please remember that PE kits need to be in school all week and ensure that all uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name. We do not keep any lost property in class.
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.
