Earth Class – Year 2

Welcome to Earth Class!

My name is Miss Lynch and I am your child’s class teacher. In our class, the children will have Mrs Hobden supporting us with our work.

This half term we will be learning lots of new things. Our topic is Toys and we will have an exciting trip to Hamley’s Toy Store on Tuesday 25th September. The children have started the topic by taking part in a Teddy Bear’s Picnic in the playground.

In English we have started a text called Meercat Mail and it is a journey story. We will be writing our own journey story and writing in detail about the characters and the setting. Children will be working hard on their handwriting and learning to write very interesting sentences. In Maths we will consolidate children’s understanding of place value and they will learn how to compare numbers. Children will move on to using their number bonds to help them to add.

A few helpful Reminders:

Our class timetable is displayed in the class window and in children’s reading records.

We have PE twice a week on Wednesday and Thursday. Children must have their PE kit for both days. Children must read and have their reading record signed every night. If this isn’t completed more than twice in a week then our child will miss playtime to read.

Please could you make sure that your child has a water bottle in school so they can keep hydrated throughout the day. Children will continue to have fruit time daily in class.

Homework is due on Wednesday and new homework will be given out on Thursday.

Please collect your child from the classroom at the end of the day.
