Welcome back Class 2! I hope you all enjoyed the Summer break and are ready for the year ahead! This letter is to inform you about what we do in Class 2, if there is anything that is unclear or you have any other questions or queries – please do not hesitate to contact me at school or via email: email@example.com@hartpury.gloucs.sch.uk The Classroom Over the summer I have been working really hard to transform the classroom into an exciting and inspiring learning environment; we have a special topic role play area in the classroom, which will change for each topic. At the moment it is set up as a pirate ship for the children to go in and sail the seven seas. Also we have a treasure chest and sand pit to use and practice fine motor skills of using equipment to find treasure as well as a small worlds tray with a desert island and pirate ship and figures to use. Our reading area is a den, guarded by 2 friendly dragons. On some of the windows are waterfalls; showing all our everyday words, to help us spell them correctly and number bonds to 10 and 20, to help us learn key facts for calculations. We even have a tree that touches the ceiling – the apples contain capital and lower case letters to help us match them up & the pears contain numbers so we can check we have written them the correct way around. Oh and not forgetting Dotty our cuddly class dog and her new pup, Spotty, who looks after our classroom when we are not in it. Homework Spellings Spellings for this term will be given out on Friday, please check the date of the test above the list. For this term Year 1 children will be issued 5 words to learn whilst they get used to the routine. Year 2 children will be issued 10 words to learn. Spelling tests will always take place on a Friday morning, spelling books will come home on Friday so you can see which words need to be practised further. This need to be returned and handed in by Thursday. Reading Books Children can have as many reading books per week as you would like, please feel free to change your books before or after school. Children will have a colour sticker on the front of their reading record book so you know which books are the right level for your child. Maths Children will be given a mental maths target to practise, this will be noted in their yellow communication book. The children earn a bronze, silver and gold star then are given a new target to work on. These are also kept on the front of their maths books. The targets may be writing certain numbers correctly, learning number bonds or times tables off by heart. Occasionally there might be an online activity or game pack sent home (there will be a note sent home in this case). Other information Please ensure all your belongings are named to avoid confusion, anything unclaimed will be placed in lost property at the end of the day. If you have any pirate books/toys/figures we could use this term please bring them and make sure your name is on them. Many thanks Miss Rock
