Class  2

Welcome to Class 2 at Longtown Primary School

Year One and Year Two 

We are very excited to be starting a new academic year.  This year our Class will be called Class Two and it will be made up of Year One and Year Two pupils. Class Two will be taught by Mrs Jefferies and Mrs Fawcett.

Our topic this half term is the ‘Great Fire of London’. Children will look at paintings, and listen to stories and songs to help transport them back to 1666 London. The children will make comparisons and comment on the differences between London now and then.

In Science, the children will explore how sounds are made, the differences between manmade and natural sounds as well as experimenting with pitch and volume.

In Maths, the children will continue to work on their place value skills.

The children will as ever, access a broad and rich curriculum and take part in RE, Art, PE , RSE, Music and of course Forest School!

 PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday. Please could children wear their kit to school on those days. Please make sure their PE kit follows school guidelines.

Forest School will be every Tuesday. Please can children wear their uniform to school and bring old clothes and wellies to change into.

Home learning

Once the children have settled back into school, we will set some home learning tasks. We ask that your child reads as much as possible, ideally every night. Book bags will be changed every week and progress monitored. Please let us know how they are getting on and when you read your schoolbooks with your child.

Year Two children will have spellings to complete. These will link to the spelling patterns taught in class and be given out for the half term. A spelling test will be held on a Friday.

 Maths homework is accessed through the ‘Numbots’ game. All children have a ‘Numbots’ log in. Your child’s log in is attached. NumBots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have.

We have many adventures planned for this year and we are excited to get started. Please get in touch if you have any questions or queries.
