Class Teacher: Miss Watson Teaching Assistant: Mrs Burnett.
Please see our Medium Term Plans for more information.
The children will be given Home Learning in a folder, every Thursday which will consist of Maths and English activities designed to help them practise the skills that they have been developing in class. Home learning is due back the following Wednesday unless it is a longer project in which case we will let you know when it is due back. Once marked the home learning can be removed from the folder and kept at home.
In addition, please help your child become confident with knowing the 10, 5 and 2 times tables, and the pairs of numbers that make 10, 20 and 100.
All children have a reading book and reading record diary that they take home and share with an adult. Please support their learning by hearing them read every day. Once they have read it is really important that the adult who heard them read comment and sign their reading record book. You will find further information on how you can support your child's reading in their reading diary.
In Year 2, the children will be responsible for choosing and changing their own home reading books as often as necessary, but ideally they should do this at least twice a week. Please ensure that they always keep their reading record book and reading books in their school bag.
Please ensure your child has their named PE kit in school ALL WEEK. Children are encouraged to bring in tracksuit bottoms or leggings for outside PE lessons, particularly during the colder months. PE lessons are on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
In addition, we are always happy to have a quick chat with you after school if you have any queries. If we can't see you that day, we can arrange to see you sometime that week.
Have you joined Kingston Library yet? They offer a great selection of books and story books on CD and you can borrow them free of charge.
If you are able to spare an hour or two to come into class to play maths games, listen to readers or even share a favourite story it would be very much appreciated. Please see me if you are available, it does not need to be a weekly commitment. We will also be taking our learning out into the wider environment and will need some additional adults to come with us, if you think you may be interested please let us know.

Elf on the Shelf!
A huge welcome to Elf who has come to stay with us throughout December.
Every night he flies back to the North Pole to tell Santa what we've been up to.
We will keep you posted on the cheeky antics he gets up to in our class!
Cornerstone Church Hub Trip
Last week we went on a trip to the Cornerstone Church Hub for their interactive Nativity experience. We enjoyed talking to some of the characters from the story and hearing some of the animals. The message of love and kindness will stay with us all through the Christmas season!
We have started our new science topic 'Plants' by planting some sunflowers in our school prayer garden. We will observe them as they grow over the Summer term.
