Kingstone & Thruxton Primary School

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2's Class page!

Hello and welcome to our class page! Our teacher is Mrs Stevenson and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Jones.

We have 23 extremely clever, enthusiastic and hardworking children in our class and we always enjoy a challenge.

Welcome back! We hope you had a fabulous Easter and have returned well rested. This half term, as usual, promises to be packed full of exciting learning activities. Below is everything you need to know for the rest of the spring term.

 

Big Question

Our two big questions this half term are 'Where do and did the wheels on the bus go?' and ‘Which birds and plants would Robin Hood find in Kingstone?'  We will explore these exciting questions by looking at different types of birds and seeing if we can spot any in our school grounds and at Kingstone park.  We will try and attract them by making bird feeders!

We will take the bus into town to visit some local landmarks - Hereford Cathedral and The Old House.  If weather permits we will enjoy a picnic on the green.

 

Swimming/ PE

PE sessions will continue to be every Tuesday afternoon. We we will be going up to the high school to take part in PE sessions every other Tuesday.   Please could you ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times.

 

Homework

Children will be set homework on Education City weekly (on Fridays), their log in can be found inside their reading diaries. The homework is optional but I would encourage your child to have a go when possible. There will also be homework linked to our topic which will be available on our class profile. You will have heard your child talking about ‘TT Rock stars.’ Times Table Rock stars is an exciting yet engaging way to help your child learn their times table quickly. Your child has already had their login and we would be very grateful if you could support them when logging on at least once a night at home.

 

Reading Diary

Reading dairies should be in school every day so they can be checked by myself or Mrs Jones, so please feel free to add any comments or concerns. It is important that children are listened to on a daily basis, comments from the listener should be recorded in your child’s diary.

 

Spellings

Spellings will go home on Thursday's  and need to be learnt for a spelling test the following Thursday. Please continue to take a little time each evening to support your child with these. It is a vital part of their writing skills.  Spelling rules build up week on week, and it can be very difficult for children to catch up when they get left behind the rest of the class. 

 

Dates for your diary

We have some really exciting dates to share with you…

*As promised, we will be holding another WOW day and you are all invited! Our next WOW day takes place on Wednesday, 23rd May.  A letter with more details will be sent out closer to the time.  Fingers crossed for a dry, sunny day!

 

As always please do not hesitate to pop in or email me to discuss any concerns or questions you might want to ask.

We look forward to a fabulous Summer term with you all!

 

Kind Regards

 

Mrs Stevenson and Mrs Jones
