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 new term! Our new topic is called A Walk On The Wildside and we will be learning all about the continent of Africa in our Geography sessions as well as finding out about the people and animals that live there. This will link into our science work on animals and humans. In our Design Technology lessons we are going to be making animal finger puppets and exploring different ways of joining materials. Once we have made our finger puppets we will use them to create our own animations so watch out on our school web pages for these appearing! As well as this we will also be working on Literacy and numeracy lessons daily along with phonics, spelling, RE, PE and music. Where possible we will try and link our topic to all our sessions.
Maths and spellings will continue to be sent home weekly. The maths links to the area of learning we have been focusing on that week but if the children are unsure how to complete their homework please speak to us at home time. We do encourage the children to be independent and hand their homework in as they come into the classroom. Please help us by reminding them to do this as they come into school.
Reading books are changed after the children have read them a few times as we want to develop fluency. We ask that books are sent to school daily and that children read at least three times a week at home and that planners are signed.
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.
