Welcome to Mars Class
This is our Y1/2 class. The class teacher is Mrs Miller and the teaching assistants are Mrs Regardsoe, Mrs Browne and Mrs Sparkes.
Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and we would like to wish you all a Happy New Year!
This term our topic is “An Island Life” where we will be following the adventures of Katie Morag at her home on the Isle of Strauy. We will be linking this with our Geography topic looking at the countries that make up the United Kingdom. Please take the opportunity of looking at the topic web below for a more in-depth overview.
These next two terms are important, particularly for Year 2s, who will be gearing up towards their SATs in Term 5. Please continue to read at home as often as you can and use the bookmarks to ask questions about the text. There will be a few workshops for parents coming up in the next two terms about strategies we teach the children in maths and also information about SATs.
Homework will continue in the form of a topic grid (see below). This is to be completed alternate weeks starting on Friday 11th January. Year 2 will receive maths homework every week and a literacy task on the weeks when the topic grid is not done. Year 1s will have Maths alternate weeks. Please hand in homework no later than Thursdays.
Spelling tests will be on Fridays with new spellings going out on a Friday for the following week.
Please make sure your child has a PE kit in school, and also appropriate clothing to wear if we go outside to do hockey as it is very cold!
