CLASS TWO

Class 2 are taught by Mrs Walsh

 

Welcome back!

Our topic this term is ‘Animal Magic’. 

I hope you all had a wonderful  holiday and enjoyed some of the lovely weather. We are starting a new topic this term which you will find more details of below. One of the main events is a visit from Zoolab. This team are bringing animals to school for your children to handle and learn more about. We are asking for a small donation towards the cost of the event.

I will also be asking some of the children to bring their pets into school. In science, we are learning about human and animal skeletons and looking at how they move. I will be sending out more information nearer the time. 

Thank you for sending children’s book bags in daily. Every child should now have a reading book which they can change on any morning during the week. Class 2 will continue have PE on  a Thursday afternoon but please can children bring a named PE kit in every day so we can always make the most of the outside area. This term the children will be doing athletics with Ignite Sports on a Thursday this term and dance will take place on one afternoon each week. 

Children are allowed to bring in a healthy snack to eat at break-time. Please could children put their fruit in their drawer first thing in the morning so they can retrieve it easily at break time. The children may also purchase items from our school tuck shop to eat or drink in the playground. Children must also bring in a named water bottle which they can access throughout the day.

The children in class two are encouraged to work together in groups and  keeping the classroom and school rules. Good work and behaviour will be rewarded with coloured tokens for their house during assembly times. The children should know the colour of their house and families should be grouped in the same colour. The children are now enjoying playing the ‘class game’ which is a reward system that earns them an extra reward for working as a team to complete work and follow class/school rules. As part of the new behaviour policy in school, children new to class 2 will also be introduced to a ‘class target’ which will be zoned in three colours; green, amber and red. The children’s names will remain in the green zone if they stay on task and complete work. If a child receives three warnings for their behaviour in class then their name may need to enter the amber zone and a dialogue with an adult may be necessary to help them return to green. If this becomes a regular occurrence, then parents will be informed. The red zone will only be used in more extreme circumstances and parents would be informed and senior leadership involved. More details will be available on the school website shortly.

As always, we are willing to answer your queries and address any concerns. All teachers are available after school and special appointments can be made if parents can not make parents meetings this term. 

Regards

Mrs Walsh

SUMMER 1- Around The World in Eighty Days

 Last term was a huge success and I think we managed to feed the whole school. This was all thanks to your generous contributions of food for the ‘Eat Your Way Around The World’ event. I am sure your children learnt lots about their chosen city/country and they certainly persuaded me to visit it a few, which was the main point of the event.Children voted for the city/country they would most like to visit and Mumbai and America were the top two.

 I have included a few photographs below of this amazing event for you to enjoy.
