Year 2 - Seal Class
Welcome to Seal Class.
Our class teacher is Mr Chappell and our class teaching assistant is Mrs Cooper
Our class focus in Term 3 is around our history enquiry question:
'Who is the greatest history maker?'
As we begin to look at events in the past and recent history, we will explore just some of the influential figures that have had an impact on the world that we see today. We will be looking, in particular, at their achievements and what makes them history makers. From our new-found knowledge of these people, we will write newspaper articles on the events and create fact files about their life.
During Term 3, our P.E day will be on a Friday. This will be outdoors, so please make sure your child has the appropriate kit in school on this day. They will require warm PE trousers (jogging bottoms), a P.E top, a jumper (school or PE suitable jumper) and trainers. Our focus will be on football this term as we continue from last term, improving our ball control skills, our accuracy when passing, our speed in team games and most of all working together as team to achieve a goal. The weather is still going to be cold, so please make sure you are prepared.
Our Forest School days will be on alternate Tuesdays. This is run by our forest school lead Mr Walsh. The dates this term are:
Tuesday 3rd January
Tuesday 17th January
Tuesday 31st January
Please make sure your child brings their Forest School kit in with them on these days to avoid disappointment. Please be prepared for the British weather and have the appropriate clothing for the day (wellies, coats, jumpers, trousers).
Home learning is sent home every week on Fridays and should be returned by the following Thursday. You will find six activities in the homework book. Your child can select one of these to complete each week. Children are also encouraged to read every day at home and receive Dojo points when they do this. Your child should also know their spelling shed and TTRockstars usernames and password, so they can access these at home. If you are unsure, please let me know and I can recover these for you.
If you ever have any concerns or questions please don't hesitate to contact me. I am at the classroom door before and after school or, alternatively, you can email me on the Class Dojos. We use the Class Dojo page every day to provide an update of all our class learning.
