Welcome to Owls Class.
Hello and welcome to Year 2! Our class teacher is Ms Teale and our teaching assistant is Miss Fox and Miss Peake. Our classroom is bright, well-resourced and learning is always fun and active! We have a designated reading corner and we have a wonderful outdoor space, which is attached to our classroom. We use this to extend our learning, particularly in the spring and summer terms.
We enjoy English, Mathematics and Phonics lessons every day. Most of our subjects are taught through an exciting thematic approach. This year our topics are: ‘Magical Journeys’, ‘Formidable Fire’,’ Fabulous and Famous’, ‘Island Adventures’, ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ and Amazing Animals’.
We have a PE lesson twice a week, usually on a Tuesday and Wednesday. We are encouraged to read with an adult at least four times a week at home. Our homework consists of weekly spellings, reading which is logged in school (including phonics decodables for those still working on this skill) and mathematics tasks linked to the current learning. Below you will find some useful documents including our ‘Spelling Booklet’ for the current term so that you can support us at home.
