Willow Yr 2/3
Miss Parsons (Mon-Thurs), Ms Lewis (Fri) and Mrs Morrish (Mon-Fri am)
Hello everybody, welcome to Willow Class.
It has been a pleasure to meet and teach your children.
We have enjoyed listening to all of the fun things that they got up to during the summer holidays.
Below are pictures of Jax, Sam, Millie, Charlie and Dylan’s STEM activities and Skye’s postcard, written on the first day of school. Mrs Morrish was so impressed with Skye’s writing that she even decided to put it in our ‘work we’d like to show off’ picture frame (the hope is that everyone at some point throughout the year will have the chance to show off a piece of work for a week).
This half term we have lots of fun topics, including, creating artwork using patterns and symmetry, learning to read and create maps, and trying to remember the 7 continents and major oceans (I’m sure by the end of this half term they’ll be able to sing you the continents and oceans songs off by heart!). They will also have a chance to play with beebots and even learn how to write a simple code to create a short animation on the chromebooks. In Science we will be learning about different materials and doing lots of fun experiments. Ms. Lewis also has lots of fun PSHE and RE activities planned for Fridays.
I really hope this will be an exciting half term, full of fun and learning.
The Willow Class Team.
When do they need their kit?
- PE is on Monday
- Swimming is on Tuesday
Please ensure all kit and uniform is named, if possible! There are always zillions of jumpers, trunks, and water bottles finding their way back to their owners……
Reading – Please listen to your child read every day and fill in their reading tree for checking every Monday.
Spelling – Practise their spellings everyday so they are ready for their spelling test on Friday morning. (This will start after half term, once everyone is settled)
Maths – Please encourage your child to access Doodle Maths 3 times a week for 10 minutes. This regular practice will make a huge difference (if you need a login for this, please let us know).
We also have access to https://st-peters-school.org.uk/news/stick-and-split-fantastic-free-maths-app-for-our-school/ . Take a look and sharpen your math skills.
Finally, if your child requires any medication please ensure this is also brought to school.
