Class Morocco

P.E days are Tuesday and Friday. Tuesday is our indoor hall slot and Friday is our outdoor P.E session. Please ensure you have a full named kit in school with suitable footwear to go outside. We will still be going outdoors for P.E in the colder weather if the conditions aren't too bad so please send your child in with a warm jumper and trousers. 

 

Homework shall be sent out every Friday changing between English, maths and reading on a 3 week rota. The homework will be due in for the following Friday unless stated differently. Spellings will be sent home on Fridays as well - these will be to consolidate the work already undertaken in class. Children will be informally tested on these during our phonics/English lessons. 

 

Please try and read with your child at least 3 times a week. One of the adults within Class Morocco will listen to every child read at least once per week. The children will change their books independently but only if there is a signature from an adult from home or within school to say they have read their book. Sometimes we may ask for a child to read the book for a second time if we feel that they would benefit from improving fluency and/or comprehension by revisiting the book. It would be great to ask children about the book they have just read to check their understanding of the characters / events or facts if it in a non-fiction book. Our lovely new reading planet books have a questions page at the back of the book for you to enjoy with your child.

 

                                

     Welcome to Class Morocco!

 

 In Class Morocco we have 27 wonderful year 2 children and an abundance of fantastic adults making up our class team. Miss Footitt is the year 2 class teacher but we are very lucky to have Miss Wildgoose training with us this year on her teacher training year, she will be teaching the children alongside myself Monday - Thursday and will be completing her training at university on a Friday. We have Mrs Holyland and Miss Heany working within our classroom everyday and Miss Heslam working Monday - Wednesday and Mrs Rickard Thursday and Friday. Mrs Green will be teaching the children on a Monday afternoon whilst Miss Wildgoose and I undertake our weekly PPA. 

 

We love learning in year 2! We enjoy daily reading every morning when we first come into the classroom followed by our daily phonics lesson. We typically have English for our first lesson before morning break followed by Maths just before lunch. During the afternoon we love our topic learning before finishing the day with our whole school collective worship. We try to go outside for our learning as much as possible and ensure our learning is always practical. You can see a more detailed overview of our topic learning on a topic overviews attached below.

Spring Newsletter

We are available on the playground before and after school daily, please come and speak to us if you have any concerns, questions, news to share or just a chat about your child. Appointments can also be made if you would like a more formal discussion about your child. Please also use their home/school diaries for communicating any messages and remind your child to let us know if there is a note in there. An adult will respond to your message ASAP. Thank you for your support.
