Hello and welcome to Puma Class!
Puma Class is a Year 2 class with 28 children in total. Working in Puma’s this year is myself (Miss Raynor - Class teacher) and Mrs Spencer (Teaching Assistant).
We are kick starting this half term off with our topic which is called ‘What a wonderful world!’ We will be exploring the seven continents of the world and learning about what makes our planet so wonderful. Our art lessons will focus on colour which will include looking at the work of the famous artist Pier Mondrian. PE will be mainly outdoors looking at rounders and cricket with the children having the opportunity to spend a morning this half term being coached by a cricket coach. We also have a football coach who will be spending a few weeks with us teaching the children some skills. As well as this we will also be working on Literacy and numeracy lessons daily along with phonics, spelling, topic, ICT, RE, PE and music. Where possible we will try and link our topic to all our sessions. Year 2 will also be taking the KS1 SATS this half term.
The children will continue to bring home a reading book and we ask that you sign their planners to let us know if they have finished the book or what page they have read up to. When a book has been finished the children will change their own books in the library areas.
Homework booklets will also be handed out during the first week back and maths and spellings will be sent weekly.
Please could you ensure your child’s P.E is in school Monday – Friday, if you wish for them to take it home they can then take it home over the weekend ready to be brought back on the Monday.
There will be a range of after school clubs for children to take part in so please keep an eye out for letters about these in the first few weeks.
Toast and juice is available to all children in KS1. Toast is 20p and juice is 30p. If your child has milk through the ‘Cool Milk’ scheme then they will have this at playtime instead of juice. We ask that children are responsible for their own toast and juice money and they order this in a morning with the class teaching assistant on entering the classroom.
We hope you and your child enjoy the first half of the summer term in Puma Class. We have lots to look forwards to!
