1st Autumn Term 2020
School has been closed (for what seems like forever) but it is now safe for us all to come back.
It will be lovely to be back in school and see our friends but we must try to keep a little bit away from each other. We can still be friends even if we don’t touch.
You might feel a little happy and excited, or a little bit nervous about coming back to school, but that is ok. Your teachers will help you to keep safe whilst we are learning and playing.
Whilst some things will be different, there is one thing that will always be the same…the happy, smiling and funny teachers waiting to welcome you back!
We’ve missed you and can’t wait to see you in September.
We have got lots to look forward to this half term and lots of new things to learn.
Remember to follow our class page on twitter @MissCooper_2C to see all the amazing things we do in class.
The question we are asking this half term is:
“What is it like Down Under?”
In class this half term we will be learning about the following things:
Maths: Place Value, addition and subtraction
English: Non-Fiction and Narrative
Science: Living things
Topic: To be as creative as possible and learn lots of new facts about Australia, the landmarks and the animals that live there.
Homework will be set through Purple Mash every Friday:
If you need your child’s login, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Children in 2C can change their book on a Monday and Thursday. Their book will be changed by their teacher, so if your child comes home with a book they have already had, please read it with them and change on the next time.
Remember to read a little every night. We aim for children to get a new book each week as we see huge benefits from this.
We have a weekly spelling challenge on Friday mornings.
Spellings in Year 2 are made up of common exception words (tricky words), spelling patterns and topic words.
Each term the children will have a bumper spelling challenge where they will spell all Year 1 or Year 2 tricky words. See below:
PE in 2C is on a Thursday morning. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on this day. They will need black shorts, a white t-shirt, trainers and a spare pair of socks.
PE kits need to be in school every day as we may do extra PE lesson throughout the week. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term or if they get dirty.
Due to COVID we are unable to speak to you at the door during collecting times. Communication is still key so please email me email@example.com or ring the office and I will call you back once the children have gone home.
As always, thank you for your continued support. You’ve all been amazing during these difficult time.
