Mrs Sinclair and myself are looking forward to welcoming you all to our new classroom in September.
Over the course of the summer holidays, make sure you get an adult to take a photo of you reading in an unusual place, and then e-mail it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're going to make a class display of all of our weird and bizarre reading places!
Looking ahead to next year, PE days will be on a Tuesday and Thursday.
Miss Hendry will be teaching most of the week, except for Tuesday morning, when Mrs Foster and Mrs Hardy will take the class, and for 1 hour on a Thursday afternoon, when Mr Boardman will take the class for PE.
All children are encouraged to read a minimum of 4 times a week to an adult. These should be recorded in their reading records.
Reading books and records should be brought into school each day as children will be expected to read throughout the week in school.
In Year 2, children will begin moving through the school's times table challenge. We will be learning the 2 times tables (including division facts) in the Autumn term. To support your child will this, you can start by counting up in 2s (e.g. 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 etc).
One way you can practice this, and get some help with the laundry, is to encourage your child to pair up their socks and count how many socks they have by counting in twos!
I have put pdf files for the Year 1 and Year 2 exception words below.
Children are expected to be able to spell all the words in the Year 1 list when they start in September.
We will begin to add in the Year 2 words over the course of the coming year.
If you have any questions, please contact me on email@example.com.
Have a fantastic Summer Holiday!
