Welcome to Class 2
Welcome to class 2. Mrs Wright is the class teacher and Mrs Young is the teaching assistant.
The children have settled well into Year 2 and we are getting used to our new classroom. The children have already been producing some lovely work ready to go up on the walls in our new classroom. We have painted self portraits and we have written speech bubbles about what we enjoy doing. We have also been thinking about what our goals are that we would like to achieve this year.
Our first topic in September is called ‘Around the World in 37 days’. We will be learning about where we live and what it is like. We will be locating different countries around the world such as Rio, China and Pakistan and comparing them to England.
In English we will be focussing on different types of writing such as stories, character profiles, letters and instructions. We will begin by focussing on the basics of writing, making sure that children are using capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, correct letter formation and using a variety of words to extend their sentences. We will also be encouraging the children to add more adjectives (describing words).
