Welcome to Class 2
with Mrs Towers
Hope you have all had a lovely Easter break. I can’t believe we are now into our final term. This summer term is very busy but also very exciting.
Our topic this term is called Splendid Skies. We’ll take a walk outdoors to find out about different types of weather and to look for signs of the seasons. We’ll study TV weather reports, make weather symbols and learn about the life and work of Sir Francis Beaufort. Creative opportunities will allow us to explore weather in works of art, make season trees and create seasonal music! We’ll compose weather poems and write postcards describing the weather in different places. Our thinking skills will come in handy when we experiment with thermometers, investigate the effects of the Sun and compare weather around the world.
On Tuesday 21st May, we will also be taking a trip to the seaside. We will be visiting Cleethorpes, where we will learn all about the geographical features of a seaside resort; and obviously get plenty of time to play on the beach and to make some fantastic sandcastles. Fingers crossed for a beautiful sunny day!
In maths we will be continuing to learn our maths fluency skills (I will re-send the sheet out as promised at parent’s evening). We will also be learning: place value, addition and subtraction, measures, fractions, multiplication and division; and money.
During the week of June 10th all of the children will be taking the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check. Over the next 4 weeks I will be sending past phonics papers home for you to practise with your child and we will also be doing lots of phonics work in class to help prepare the children.
On Thursday 4th July we will also be having a joint exhibition with Class 3, to celebrate all the fantastic work that the children will be doing during this topic.
Our PE days are still on a Monday and a Tuesday; and on these days children will need their PE kit and trainers for outdoor PE please.
Please can you also make sure that children come to school every day with a water bottle, especially now we are moving into the summer months, where hopefully the weather should be getting warmer!
I am looking forward to seeing all of the fantastic work the children in Class 2 will be doing this term and I hope to see you all at our exhibition in July, so you can see it for yourselves.
Lastly, I would like to thank you again in advance for your continued support. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to come and speak to me.
