Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Greenaway Class! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer break and the children are looking forward to starting their first term in Year 2. I know that I’m really excited to be teaching your lovely children this year and can’t wait to get started.
We begin the term with a ‘Friendship Fortnight’ which will focus on getting to know each other, settling into our new classroom and establishing new routines before starting our main topic for this half term entitled ‘Here and There with Paddington Bear’. During this topic we find out about the many adventures of Paddington Bear and explore the magnificent city of London. If you have any books at home linked to our topic we would love for you to send them in so that we can share them with the class. We promise to take good care of them until the end of term.
Here is an outline of the things that happen every week:
Monday - Homework and spellings are given out. Visit to the library to choose a new book.
Wednesday - PE with Mr Rickard and music with Mrs Davis.
Friday - Active mile, spelling test, maths homework returned. PE with Mrs Cudmore.
Please can the children bring in a named water bottle each day. Please remember to send your child's PE kit into school in a named carrier bag ready for their PE lessons on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Don’t forget to send your child to school wearing their trainers and jogging bottoms on a Friday ready for our active mile in the morning.
Each term we would like the children to contribute towards the class topic. This term we would like them to begin researching The Great Fire of London at home. They can present this information in any way they wish, e.g. make a poster, create a book, use the Book Creator App on the iPad, email us etc. It would be nice to have these in just after half term. Thank you for your support!
We hope you will find this information useful. If you have any further questions or queries then please don’t hesitate to ask.
We look forward to a happy and enjoyable year in Year 2!
Thank you for your support.
With very best wishes,
Mrs Cudmore (Class Teacher)
Mrs Mably and Mr Hawtin (Teaching Assistants)
