Hi and welcome to 2S’ page :)
Our class teacher is called Miss Spillman. We have another adult in our classroom called Mrs. Bates and we are lucky to have Ms Newman who comes and reads with us, and who takes some of us to do interventions. In 2S we love to learn, that is why we have Lionel the learning lion, who helps us with our shared language and who encourages us to be the best learners we can be. In our classroom, there is a reading corner so we can read and enjoy different types of books; an art area so we can get creative; a sand area so we can have fun searching for our treasure, and we have a construction area where we can build things. We also have lots of interactive displays where we can practice our times tables, our SPaG and phonics.
Our days are filled with lots of exciting lessons, including: Maths, Reading, English, R.E, Handwriting, Phonics, SPaG, Science, Computing (taught by Mr. Kearney), Music (taught by Mr Watson) and P.E.
We do Topic every Friday in 2S- we do lots of different things in Topic including Geography, History, English, Art and Design and Technology. We have sketch books in Year 2 which make us really concentrate on our Art. This term, as you know from our super class assembly, our Topic has been ‘Adventures Ahoy’- We are all excited for our Pirate dress up day! We will also be studying whole school topics including ‘Black History Week’ and ‘3-5-7’ this term. Our Topic links closely with other Curriculum Studies, such as English and Maths. Throughout the year we will be going on trips and having workshops that will help us understand our Topics- information to follow.
We have P.E twice a week (taught by Mr Vijay and specialist coaches this term). We do P.E both outside and inside so we need to make sure we have the right kit. We can bring our P.E kits and leave them at school until half term so that we don’t have to remember each week.
Our learning doesn't stop at school that is why we get homework. Our homework always relates to what we are doing in class, so it helps us a lot. We get spellings on Monday and we have to make sure we complete our spelling words every evening ready for our spelling test on Friday. We also get Maths homework on Wednesday to be given in on Friday. We have special R.E homework which is to complete the Wednesday Word. We also have to make sure we read every evening as we want to be super star readers :)
In 2S we are such super stars and role models in our school. We are kind, helpful and always try our best. We are very excited for our exciting year ahead!
