Class 2 - Mrs Foster / Miss Beaumont
Welcome to Class 2!
Hello and welcome to Class Two. We are Miss Beaumont and Mrs Foster, the teachers of our wonderful year twos this year. We also have Mrs Wattam and Miss Allen working in our class. We are all looking forward to a brilliant year ahead, with lots of exciting topics and activities planned.
Reading: We love reading in our class, and it is really important that we all read as much as we can to help us widen our vocabulary and develop our fluency. We need to read at least three times a week and make sure we record it in our Learning logs so that we can get as many reading prizes as possible.
Spelling: Every day we go to our RWInc groups and practise our reading and spelling. We have a spelling test on Fridays and we have our new spellings given out on that day too. The spellings are stuck into the Learning Logs so that they can be practised during the week.
Homework: There is also our Homework Grid which contains tasks linked to the current topic. The activities can be done at any time during the half term and we look forward to seeing how creative our year twos can be! Please don't forget to learn your spellings and practise your times tables too!
PE: We have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays but it's a good idea to bring PE kits in on Monday and leave them in school just in case. You never know, we might have an urge to do something extra during the week!
