Welcome to Bengal Tiger Class!!
Welcome back to a new school year! We have lots of exciting learning in store for Year 2. Our teacher is Miss Brown and our teaching assistant is Miss Fell. Miss McRae teaches us on a Thursday afternoon. This term we will be focusing our learning around 'The Victorians'.
Homework will be sent home every Thursday and is due back on Tuesday. Spellings will also be sent home every Thursday and tested the following Thursday. In addition to this, please read with your child each night and record it in their reading record. Every read goes towards their Rocco Reading Passport!
Please ensure your child's named PE kit is now in school. Our PE days are as follows:
Tuesday - outdoor
Friday - indoor
This term we will be focusing on ball skills and team skills through games such as dodge ball.
If you have any questions or concerns at any point please do pop in at the start of the day or at pick-up. I believe a big part of your child's success is a result of strong school-home links and communication.
Reading at Home
In Year 2, we are very enthusiastic about reading and encourage the children to read for pleasure at every opportunity. It is also an important foundation for their learning, as without the ability to read, the children will find all other areas of the curriculum tricky. There are a number of wonderful stories and fairy-tales which link into our topic and are well worth a read:
Traction Man is Here by Mini Grey
Meerkat Mail by Emily Gravett
Amazing Grace bu Mary Hoffman
Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper
Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book? By Lauren Child
