Welcome to Y2 at Marshland
Welcome to Y2CS and what we hope will be a very exciting year! The term has already started brilliantly with the children settling well into their new class and routines and they already seem more grown up! They have all arrived punctually, looking extremely smart in their uniform and our class attendance is fantastic so keep it up!
Our theme this term is All Creatures Great and Small which will cover lots of the science curriculum, with lots of hands on, exciting learning opportunities. We have a trip to Austerfield planned for November and have already taken part in some outdoor learning using the school environment. We have already looked at Spinderella as a class text and the children are producing fantastic non fiction writing from this. Our shared reading text is Fantastic Mr Fox which I know the children are very eager to start reading!
Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has their kit on these days. Homework will be given out on Friday to be completed by the following Thursday. They will bring home spellings and a maths activity based on our learning in class. At the front of their books is a homework menu. The children can choose any activity they wish and do as many (or few) as they feel like. Not all the tasks involve reading and writing and I know having shared them with the children that they are keen to have a go! Please support your child by listening to them read as often as possible – it really does make all the difference to their progress and understanding.
If you have any questions or need to speak to me about anything, please contact me.
Many thanks for your continued support.
