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 the last half of the spring term! Our new topic is called What a Wonderful World and we will be continuing to learn all about the continent of Africa in our Geography sessions as well as finding out about the other continents. This will link into our science work on humans and what makes us healthy. In our Design Technology lessons we are going to be making smoothies after learning about healthy food and practicing our food cutting skills! Once we have made our smoothies we will be selling them on our parent open afternoon. 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.
Wednesday 11th March is our Easter Story day where the local church group will be coming in to help the children explore the Easter Story and its importance for Christians.
On Wednesday 1st April from 2.30pm - 3.30pm we will be having our enrichment afternoon where parents can join us to find out what we have been doing in the last term.
On Tuesday 17th March Boggledy Books will be joining us and children can bring money to buy a book for either £1, £2 or £3. Parents are welcome to browse the books after 3.30pm.
Thursday 5th March is World Book Day and EYFS and KS1 will be dressing up as a Julia Donaldson character. On this morning from 9.15am until 10.15am we will be inviting parents to join us for another Book and Bite reading morning.
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.
