Week beg 10th January 2022
Happy New Year to everyone! It has been lovely meeting and getting to know Swallows class. I am very pleased to be Swallows new class teacher and can't wait for our journey together this year!
We have a very busy yet exciting term in store for us!
This week we have started our new story 'The Dragon Machine' written by Helen Ward. The children began the week noticing dragon footprints and that an egg had been laid. Throughout the week they have used adjectives to create noun phrases to describe what they have found. We will continue with developing this during next week.
Swallows class are currently working with money by adding up different coins.
In Religion, we are exploring the Jewish faith and discovering their love for God in their daily life.
Please spend 10 – 20 minutes reading each day. This can be a combination of Read Write Inc and bedtime storybooks. Please take turns reading to each other. Listening is just as important as being able to read and will support your child in their understanding of stories.
Please refer to your child’s diary for information regarding the sounds that your child has been taught and also the titles of the books they will have at home.
During the Spring term, our spellings will be focused on the Year Two Common Exception words. These are words that the children will come across frequently in both their reading and writing. We will complete a spelling quiz in class every Friday. We will write your child's score in their diary each week. This will be written next to the spellings they have been tested on that day. This will be on the page of the previous weeks.
There is no spelling quiz on Friday 7th January. Spellings will be put in your child’s homework diary on the 7th January for the following week.
There is no times tables quiz on Friday 7th January. Time tables will be given on Friday 7th January ready to complete the spelling quiz on the 14th January.
PE day will be on Monday (Mr Ault)
