Happy and Successful Children
This year we will be following the new curriculum through exciting topic such as ; Paws, Claws and Whiskers, Dinosaur Planet, Moon Zoom, Street Detective, Wriggle and Crawl, and Enchanted Woodland.
This term the topic is called Paws, Claws and Whiskers. It has a science focus.
Soft fur, sharp claws and twitching whiskers... What’s your favourite animal? One that meows? One that barks? Or maybe one that scurries or slithers?
From pets at home to animals in the zoo, let’s find out what animals like to eat and where they like to sleep.
Things to Remember:
The children will have weekly homework (English and Maths), which will be sent out on a Monday and checked on a Friday A homework project is set for the children to work on over the half term linked to the topic they are learning about in class. At the end of the term, there is an opportunity for the children to show case their homework projects to parents. Everyone is welcome.
PE is a statutory requirement. Class 2 PE is currently every Monday and Tuesday afternoon. All children are expected to have the correct school PE kit each week; navy blue shorts, navy blue jogging bottoms, white t-shirt, pumps or trainers. Children must not come to school with jewellery on i.e. necklaces, bracelets etc. and if children wear earrings, they must be able to take them out for PE. Children with long hair also need to tie their hair back for PE.
Reading at Home
Children are expected to read frequently at home. They should read independently, as well as having the opportunity to read to/with their adult. All children need to increase their reading pace and fluency. This year, we are taking part in the '100 books to read' challenge. This challenge encourages children to read a range of books and expand their love of reading.
