Teachers – Miss Chelsea Burrows and Mr Baxter
We hope you are all well and have had a lovely Summer holiday. It was lovely to see all of the children – don’t they look so grown up and smart!!!
Please see the curriculum map below (which was emailed with this letter) as it will inform you about everything Class 2 will be learning this term.
As you will already know there will be a new teaching timetable in Class 2 this year. Miss Burrows will be teaching in Class 2 Monday to Thursday morning and Mr Baxter will be teaching Thursday afternoon and Friday. We are also very lucky to have Trainee Teacher, Miss Ella Tarr, join us in Class 2 for the Autumn and Summer terms. Miss Tarr is currently completing her PGCE year and will be completing her teacher training at Kenn Primary. All of Class 2 are very excited to have Miss Tarr and we know she is looking forward to meeting all of you.
Homework will be arranged differently this year. The children will come home with the whole half term’s homework in their homework book. There will be Spellings and Maths, as well as a quest/topic work, which will be broken down into small chunks. Please could your child choose one of the quest/topic pieces to complete each week and bring their homework book back to school on a Wednesday when there will be an opportunity to share their homework with an adult at school. We will then send the books home again on Wednesday night, so they can continue the rest of their work at home.
Please read with your child every evening. You can use one of the multiple books sent home each week or can use books that you have at home. It makes such a difference to their reading in all curriculum areas if they are heard at home regularly. As you know the children have reading records and when your child has collected 25 signatures (from an adult or themselves to say they have read) they will be awarded with a non-school uniform day. Your child can choose when to take this, so they may like to do it on their own or with their friends who have also received 25 signatures. The children are aware of this incentive and are already eager to get reading, so please do help me in keeping them motivated.
On Mondays and Fridays the children will need to come into school in their PE kit. For this half term the children will be inside on Mondays and outside on a Friday (weather permitted). Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit.
Water bottles, Book Bags and Jumpers
Please ensure that your child brings these items into school with them every day and that they are labelled.
Thank you for your ongoing support,
Miss Burrows and Mr Baxter
