Welcome to Spruce class. We are a Year 2 class taught by Miss Sharman. Miss Pierce is our Teaching Assistant, and is with us every day.
If you have any worries or concerns then don’t hesitate to speak to us, we are always available at the end of the day to answer any questions you may have. Alternatively, you can make an appointment to see us with Mrs. Nicholls at the front office.
See curriculum overview for more details regarding learning this term.
During Spring term, we will be reading Wild as our class book. We will be reading and looking at the text in-depth to help build our reading, comprehension and writing skills. We will be making predictions, asking questions and developing our comprehension skills. We will also continue our guided reading sessions, which focuses on comprehension.
We would like your children to read at least three times a week at home, more if possible. We have a reward system in place where your child will get 5 house points every time they read. When they have read, 5 times they move up on our minion’s mission to the moon chart. Every child who reads three times in a week receives a certificate in our good news assembly. Occasionally we send home a comprehension sheet instead for the children to read and answer questions about.
The children will continue to develop their understanding of the number system, focusing on place value and addition. This term we will be following the focus maths programme and working on place value, addition and subtraction, and length and measurement.
Our topic focus this term is looking at Antarctica. We will be looked at the human and physical features of Antarctica, the animals that live there and what life is like there. We will be looking at the 7 continents of the world, and the oceans that surround them.
Homework will be sent out every Wednesday and due in the Thursday of the following week. This consists of Maths and Topic based homework.
Spellings rules and phonics are taught throughout the week during Star Spelling. There will be a spelling test every Friday. Spellings will be sent home every Monday, to be learnt for the test that week.
