Venus – Year 1 & 2
Welcome to Venus Class!
My name is Miss Daniels and I am your child’s class teacher. This term is an exciting and busy term for us.
This term we will be focusing on two engaging and exciting topics: At the Seaside and Indian Spice. Within At the Seaside, we will be looking at identifying seasides on a map and looking at the physical and human features. In Indian Spice we will be looking at locating India and UK on the map and comparing both countries.
We will be learning lots of new songs as part of our Charanga scheme and using our classroom instruments to go alongside this.
In English, we are following a new scheme called PM writing. We are looking at explanation texts, discussion texts and narratives.
In Maths, we will be re-visiting a range of skills including multiplication and division, shape and money and addition and subtraction. We will also practice these skills for homework which will be available on Mathletics each week – to access this, you will find your child’s username and password in their reading records. Please continue practicing saying your 2,5 and 10 times tables and telling the time.
Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school each week. They will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed and returned to school. Our PE day is on Tuesday.
Children must read each night and their reading record should be signed by an adult each day. A spelling test will be done on Friday for the spellings that have been set on the previous week’s homework.
Please ensure your child has a school water bottle which can be purchased at the office for £1.
Children will receive a piece of fruit each day at break time.
Thank-you for your ongoing support! We all really appreciate it.
