Welcome to EY2
Welcome to our class page! We currently have 18 wonderful children in this class who are all happy and keen to learn. Mrs Barnett and Miss Hill (covering Mrs Procter’s maternity leave) are the class teachers with Mrs Waddington making our team complete.
Our classroom environment supports and celebrates all of our work and achievements. Each week, we have a reader, writer, mathematician and presentation award. The children are presented with certificates in assembly, given a trophy to keep on their desks and they are allowed to choose a prize. We also have English, Maths and Topic boards that display the children’s fantastic work and change throughout the year. We also get lots of stickers for showing good learning behaviours and we get star cards for doing super work and trying our best.
We enjoy learning lots of new and exciting things. In the mornings, we have Reading Workshop, Phonics, Grammar, Literacy and Maths. In the afternoons, we have topic RE, Science and PE sessions. Please click on the links/documents if you would like to see more about what we are doing. PE is taught twice a week on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.
Newsletters are sent out on the first week of each half term to update you on what we will be learning.
Our Trips and Enrichment Activities
- Summer Term – A visit to the library as part of our Literacy topic and/or a trip to Brockholes or ‘Bring Yer Wellies’ to take part in some outdoor games and fieldwork.
General Class Information
- We understand the importance of reading and the children read in school every day. Reading books are sent home and are change on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please listen to your child read and discuss what they have learnt before signing your child’s reading diary.
- Homework is sent on Fridays. There will be a phonics investigation, maths activity and reading activity each week. There will be a weekly spelling test linked to the previous weeks’ phonics investigations.
- Show and Tell time is on Friday afternoons. These sessions are important to us as it gives the children the opportunity to share news with the rest of the class. The children are encouraged to bring things to show that are linked to our topics or tell others about any exciting news they may have.
