Welcome to Year 2 and Hedgehogs class.
Welcome to Hedgehogs Class!
The Summer term is here, let the learning commence!
In the Hedgehogs Class, our topic for the Summer term will be 'Let's go on a Super Safari' where we will be travelling around the continent of Africa! We will be exploring the different countries, cultures, climate, living things and their habitats, geography and history of the many countries (also we get to try out lots of African recipes in the kitchen mmmmm yummy). Our topics are integrated across the curriculum, throughout all subjects and in line with Big Writing for English. If you have any interesting African artefacts, photos or even experiences your child would like to share with us please don't hesitate bringing them in or telling us all about them!
This terms international week, we will be learning all about St.Lucia; their cultures, food, traditions, festivals and language. If you or your child would like to bring in any souvenirs or have any interesting facts, Mrs Howes and Ms Vargo would love to hear or see them during our international week!
Each Thursday, your child's homework will be located inside their spelling book, Maths whizz and reading eggs are assessed and monitored weekly. Spellings will be given out weekly, each Thursday and children will be tested individually the following Tuesday. Children will read at least twice a week at school and we ask that they also read at home three times a week in addition to diaries being read and signed each time. This will help your child to receive their reading sticker, ALSO each Friday each class will be completing for the reading trophy in celebration assembly, the more children that read 3 times a week the more chance we have of winning!
If you have any queries in regards to this homework, please don't hesitate to speak to Mrs Howes, Ms Vargo or Mrs Jones.
We have PE every Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child's PE kit is kept in school so that they have access to their PE kit at all times and where possible please make sure that a pair of tracksuit bottoms are packed in addition to shorts, in case of winter weather.
If your child is unable to tie their shoelaces, we ask kindly that they have plimsolls with no laces.
Please also ensure that your child has spare clothing in their bags in case of any toilet accidents. These should be kept in school on your child's coat peg.
We do cooking on a Wednesday. Please make sure that your child has a labelled container in school each Monday so that they can take home their delicious treats.
If you have any queries, concerns or would like an appointment to see your class teacher, Mrs Howes and Ms Vargo will be available each morning on the playground.
