Welcome back everyone! I have been so excited to see some old and new faces this year coming into class 2. We have an exciting year ahead with brand new topics to explore together. On our DB primary page you will find all the key information you need to know for this coming academic year, along with any updates from myself.
The class 2 team
In class 2 we have an amazing team of teaching assistants that work alongside myself (Miss Williamson) including Miss Woods, Mrs Root and Mrs Fagg. Miss Woods is with us all week during both mornings and afternoons. Mrs Root is with us on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Fagg is with us Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If there is anything you ever need, please feel free to catch any of us on the gate in the morning.
My email address is below should you need to speak to me directly.
Year 1s and 2s - you will have a packet that contains a reading book and a yellow diary. Please aim to read with an adult 4 times a week and get them to write in your yellow reading diary.
You will also have a blue homework book. In here you will find weekly reading and math challenges to complete. Please hand in your homework book on a Wednesday for marking. Books will be returned back to you on a Friday. There is also a list of year 1 and 2 common exception words at the back of the homework book to refer to and practise.
Spellings will be uploaded onto DB primary under the 'Spellings' tab every Friday and will be tested the following Friday.
Times tables are also tested on a Friday. Multiplying will be a new concept for many children in my class and therefore will only be tested once I have taught them how to multiply. I will make a note inside of their reading diary once they are ready to be tested. For those children who were part of my multiplication speed test last academic year and for any children who are confident with the concept of multiplying, we will be restarting from the 2 x table again. This way I can check how well the children can recall facts from previously learnt tables.
Our PE day is on a Wednesday so please send your child in wearing their PE kit in the morning. Most of our PE lessons will be outdoors this term so please send your child in wearing weather appropriate clothing.
Below is the whole year overview for Class 2. It lists each of the topics that will be covered over each half term. Some subject areas cover a term so may start slightly later in the first half term.
