Welcome to St Clare Class
Teacher: Miss Hammond
PE kits need to be brought to school every Monday and taken home and washed on a Friday. That way kits will always be available when they are needed.
Spellings are given every Monday. Please learn these for a test the following Friday.
Reading books are changed weekly. Please read with your child each night and ensure reading books are always in your child’s book bag when they come to school.
Homework is also given on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday morning. Please see the class teacher if you have any questions about the homework. Please see the attachment for this weeks homework.
The main focus at the beginning of Year 2 in Maths we will be assessing your child's knowledge of their numbers. They need to be secure with their 2's, 5's and 10's times tables and they also need to be able to count and write numbers to 100.
We carry out a few Big read sessions each week, which means as a class we read the same book and have lots of discussion around it and complete fun tasks. Our Big Read text this term is Ice Bear by Nicola Davies.
We now take part in Guided Reading, with this your children are in smaller groups and they will take part in different activities daily. Examples of theses include:
Reading with Teacher
Reading with TA
In English we will be focusing on punctuation and learning how to include these in our writing.
Capital letters - ABC
Full Stops - .
Exclamation Marks - !
Question Marks - ?
Commas - ,
Speech Marks - " "
Our history topic next term will be Our Community
