Class 4 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Class 4!
A Message from Mrs Moorhouse:
Hello and welcome to year 2! I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing summer - I can't wait to hear what the children have been upto when we share their holiday news!
This year we will be having lots of fun with new and exciting topics in English, History and Science as well as working hard to achieve the very best we can!
Reading - Reading is going to remain a big focus this year so please listen to your child read as often as possible - even if it is just 5 minutes a day, every little helps. While listening to your child read, encourage them to use their phonics knowledge to blend and segmnt the words, and ask them questions to check and deepen their understanding of the text.
Along with their reading book and reding record, your child will have a 'Reading Rocks' card - every time they read at home they will get a sticker and once it is full they will get a prize from the class prize box.
Please ensure that your child has their reading book in school every day - they will be listened to at least once a week as well as daily guided reading sessions where we will look in depth at a seperate text together as a class.
PE - PE will be on a Tuesday with Lewis the sports coach and a Thursday when they will be learning key skills through fun games. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school every day with their name inside.
Class rewards - As a reward for following our class rules, we will be earning gold coins to earn treats. We will also be working hard to earn our weekly Golden Time as well as team points and invidual awards such as smilies and Star of the Day!
If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to see me at the end of the school day.
Phonics is a key part of our learning in EYFS and KS1. It is the basis of how we read and how we write and spell words. You can learn more about what phonics is and how we teach it here. There are also resources on the page such as sound mats and word lists, as well as ways you can help your child with their reading at home.
Please read with your child as often as possible. If we feel that your child can read their book satisfactorily they can change it once a week. Please sign your child’s book every time you hear them read.
Homework will continue to be given out every Wednesday. Please work with your child and complete it in the week. If your child receives spellings please practise these ready for the spelling test .
For more detailed information on what we will be doing this half term please take a look at our class newsletter.
