Welcome to Loganberry Class!
Hi, I am your class teacher in Loganberry Class. My name is Mrs Stevenson and my teaching assistant is Mr Langford.
What are we learning?
In Literacy, we follow a text- led curriculum and will be looking at the texts ‘The Robot and the Bluebird’ and ‘The Owl whose afraid of the dark’. We will be learning lots of reading and writing skills including Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
In Maths, we will continue to develop children’s understanding of place value before developing our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills. We will also be learning about time, shape and fractions.
Our IPC topic this half term is ‘All dressed up’. We will be learning about different materials and the types of clothing that were worn in the past and in different countries.
Every child has the opportunity to read in school and books are changed regularly. Whilst fluency remains important there is a greater focus towards comprehending the texts in Year 2 therefore this may impact the stage they are reading. We do expect children to read at home and continue to earn their REDTED prizes which carry over from Year 1. Please try and listen to your child regularly and don’t forget to record it in their diaries so they can get their prizes.
We have P.E. on a Tuesday and Friday so please remember your P.E. kits! We will go outside to do P.E in the winter, weather permitting, so joggers and a fleece would be beneficial. Plimsolls or trainers can be worn for outside P.E.
As the weather is getting colder please make sure your child has a named coat and jumper with them every day.
Please ensure your child has a named water bottle. Learning is thirsty work!
Homework is sent out on Friday afternoons and needs to be back in by Thursday of the following week. I run a homework session at lunchtime on a Friday if your child needs support. Just let me know.
Please put your child’s name on all of their belongings so that they can be reunited with them more easily.
