Miss Turner's Class

Welcome to Class 2

     

I am looking forward to a great year with all the children.   Please see some general information about how Class 2 will run for the year ahead below.

 

Reading

Please make sure that reading books are brought to school every day. Children need to read regularly to an adult for about 10 minutes each school night. It would be helpful if you could ask your child questions about what they have just read as this develops a greater understanding of text, questions such as, ‘who are the main characters?’ and ‘what do you think will happen next?’ are good places to start.

 

Spellings

Spellings will be given out every Friday; your child will have a short spelling test within their spelling session and then they will be given new words which link in with the teaching for the following week.  

 

Homework

Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be handed in the following Wednesday to allow for it to be marked before the end of the week. 

 

PE & Welly Wednesday

Named PE kit needs to be in school every day in a named bag on your child’s coat peg.  Our PE slot is on a Thursday afternoon but if the weather is good we may well take advantage of it and go out on different days.  We will go to the forest in the school grounds on Welly Wednesday, please ensure your child has appropriate clothing and wellies in order to be able to take part. 

 

Welly Wednesday for this term will begin on Wednesday 13th September. 

 

Many thanks in advance for your support.

If you have any queries at any point please get in touch with me.
