Welcome to Class 2RR –
Miss Rudd’s Class
Autumn Term 2017
Welcome to Mrs Rudd’s class page.
Here you will find information about the exciting projects that Year 2 will be covering, as well as any key dates or important pieces of information that you will need to know for the upcoming weeks and months.
A very warm welcome back to school! I can’t wait to hear the children’s holiday news. We have a very busy and exciting term ahead of us! This term’s project is all about toys from the present and the past. We will be receiving a special toy box from Warrington Museum that will contain lots of old toys. We will be comparing toys from the past with our own. In Art and DT, we will be sketching our favourite toys to help us design and make them.
We will also be creating our own teddy bear museum, so if you have any old bears in your family these would be great to showcase.
During this half term a focus text will be the Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. We will be using this to develop our reading and writing skills. We would like each child to purchase their own copy of this story to read and explore at home with parents also.
We will be planning an exciting visit to the Lowry Art Gallery and having a Lego workshop shop at school.
This year group will continue to be taught under the revised National Curriculum and will be assessed on this at the end of Key Stage 1. This will include tests for Reading, Maths and Spelling and Grammar to be completed in May. More details and information on this will follow.
Please ensure that school uniform is clearly labeled so that items don’t get miss placed during the year.
Please ensure that your child brings a named water bottle into school every day containing water only.
Homework will be sent home every Wednesday and needs to be returned to school on the following Monday. This will support learning that we have covered in school.
Spellings will be sent home to learn on a Monday and these will be tested on a Friday. We will send weekly guidance to help your child learn these.
Please continue to read with your child at least 3 times a week and record this in your child’s planner as this is so valuable and vital to improving their reading and writing skills. Children will be encouraged to change their own reading books when they have confidently finished it. Your child will read from the school reading scheme that it matched to their reading ability. If you child wishes to read from any other books that they are interested in, these can also be recorded in their planners.
Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school everyday and that it is clearly labeled. The PE kit will be sent home at the end of each half term to be washed unless they need washing sooner. PE will be taught twice a week.
We would love your help and support however big or small.
If you would like to help in school please come and have a chat with me so we can discuss how this can be arranged.
