Class 2 Newsletter
14th September 2017
News: This week in class 2 we have been learning about reports, reading lots of examples and putting actions to a newspaper report about the rescue of Little Red Riding Hood to help us to learn the text. In maths, we have been learning about numbers, how to build different numbers using a range of mathematical resources. In the afternoons, we have learnt about the life and work of William Morris (Victorian artist) and have created a human timeline to represent the Victorian period.
Home learning: This week home learning was sent out for the children to practice their times tables. Please ensure that all home learning folders are returned on Monday 18th.

News: I would like to welcome everyone back after the summer break. It has been lovely to get to know the children this week. This week in class 2 we have been completing lots of 'get to know you' activities including an 'All About Me' maths activity where the children needed to create maths sums to use as clues to find out how old they were, the number of pets they have and so on. In English, we have written recounts about the summer holidays and have also written character descriptions based on the eye of a creature.
Home learning: No official home learning activities have been sent home this week. Please make sure that you hear your children read regularly.
14th July 2017
News: This week in class 2 we imagined we were reporters for either The Celtic Times or The Roman Times and wrote reports from different viewpoints. The children then learnt about the Roman months of the year and wrote about their year in a report. In maths, we have all been learning about collecting data and presenting data on graphs and charts. The children have also been interpreting the data to draw conclusions and pose questions for their friends. The children have also designed Roman chariots to make next week.
Reminder: We are very much looking forward to our Romans day on Thursday 20th July where the children can come to school dressed as Romans for the day. Please don’t worry about spending money on costumes, a pillow case/old sheet with a rope tied around the middle will suffice. Invitations will be coming very soon to you asking if you’d like to join us for the last part of the afternoon which will be a celebration roman feast. It will also give me a chance to say goodbye to so many of you that have been so supportive over years and that I’ve grown so fond of. So do please join us if you can make it from 2:30pm onwards.
Home learning: This week the children have topic work to complete. The details are on our class page on the website if you have misplaced the homework letter I sent out at the beginning of term 5.
