Welcome to Cherry Class
You have all settled into Year 2 very well! We have learnt so much this term already and you all enjoyed finding out lots of animal and human facts in our 'What I need to be me' topic. We are having lots of fun with our learning. Our next topic is called 'Blown Away' and the children will learn about weather, weather patterns, collecting data and weather around the world and how it can differ from country to country.
As the weather is beginning to get a little colder and wetter can you please make sure you have your coat in school.
Our Topic: Blown Away!
(Please see the curriculum map below for more detail)
Indoor PE - Thursday
Outdoor PE - Monday
The children are heard read twice a week in school. Once during a group guided reading session and the other individually by the class teacher or teaching assistant.
It is really important that your child reads at home every day and the planner is signed accordingly. Reading frequently has a huge positive effect on a child's reading development.
Homework is given out once a week on a Thursday and is due back in the following Tuesday. Each week, there is an English and a Maths task. The homework is a reflection of what the children have been taught that week and is a chance to practise and enhance their learning.
In Foundation and KS1 we follow the Read Write Inc Programme. The Read Write Inc. Phonics is a complete literacy programme, for 3 to 7 year-olds learning to read and write. The children review or learn a new sound (phoneme and grapheme) each day and also practise writing this sound on its own and in words.
We do handwriting practise every afternoon for ten minutes. The children have differentiated spellings each week with the spelling test being on a Friday morning.
If you have any questions, please just ask or write in your child's planner.
