Class  2

Welcome to Class 2 at Longtown Primary School

Year One and Year Two 

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 ‘Nurturing Nurses’. Children will learn about the lives of Florence Nightingale,  Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell. The children will read extracts from biographies before planning and writing their own. 

In Science, the children will explore the parts of their bodies and take part in investigations to help them explore their senses!

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 bring their PE kits to change into. Please make sure their PE kit follows school guidelines.

No Forest School this half term.  

Home learning

 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.

All children will be given spellings to learn for the half term. Each week the spelling rule will match the one taught in class. 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.
