Puma - Y2
The fantastic Puma class is a straight Year two class located at the bottom of the two story block. Working in Puma’s this year we have Mrs Spencer, Mrs Porter and Mrs Burns. Mrs Butler & Mrs Gray will also be providing additional teaching. If you have any questions or queries, you can speak to any of the adults in the class.
We have lots of exciting activities planned for this half term in the run up to Christmas! Our new topic is called 'Famous for 5 minutes' and the children will be learning about famous people in the present and those from the past. The children will get to place famous people on a timeline to develop their understanding of the past and learn a little bit about their life. Famous people we will be looking at are Vincent Van Gogh, L.S. Lowry, Queen Victoria, Tim Peake, Neil Armstrong, Lionel Messi and the Brownlee Brothers. This will link to our art work when we will study the work of Van Gogh and Lowry and try to recreate art work in their style. Our science work on materials will continue this half term. As well as this we will also be working on Literacy and numeracy lessons daily along with phonics, spelling, ICT, RE, PE and music. Where possible we will try and link our topic to all our sessions.
Homework booklets will come home during the first week back and maths and spellings will continue to be sent weekly. If the children want extra support with the homework, they can ask any of the adults who will be more than willing to help them. And if they bring their homework back early they get even more team points.
The children will all 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. We are keen to develop fluency so we like to encourage children to re-read their books before changing them.
Toast & Juice
Just a reminder that toast and juice is available to all children in KS1. Toast is 20p and juice is 30p. You can either pay daily or weekly upfront. If your child has milk through the ‘Cool Milk’ scheme then they will have this at playtime. Also there will be a selection of fruit and vegetables that the children can have as well.
