Welcome to Class 2!

Croeso i Ddosbarth 2!

 

 

 

Welcome back to school !

We hope you've all had a super summer and are ready for a super start to the super year ahead! This is our main page where you will find general class information and you can follow the links to find more specific information. I will endeavour to post photographs here regularly so that you can see what the children have been getting up to.

 

The staffing for class two is - Mrs Manley-full time class teacher

- Mrs Wilkinson , LSA (Mon,Tues,Thursday,Fri)

-Miss Parsons , LSA (one to one support Tues-Fri)

-Mrs Francombe LSA (Mon and Weds)

-Mrs Parfitt, HLTA (PPA cover Mon afternoon)

 

General Information:

Dinner money should be paid on a Monday.

Forest School will be on alternating Friday afternoons.

 

Our PE days are:

Monday - indoor PE

Fri - alternating afternoons for outdoor games.

We will endeavour to do gym indoors and games outdoors but occasionally due to adverse weather or the hall being used we may have to change this unexpectedly. We would therefore ask that children bring both indoor (shorts/pants,vests/t-shirts) and outdoor (joggers/trainers) kits on these days.

Kit can be left in school and sent home half-termly for washing.

No jewellery is to be worn on these days please. (In the case of newly pierced ears, please provide micropore tape or plasters to cover them).

 

Our context for learning this half term is.... 'Superheroes' which will provide many exciting learning opportunities to kick-start the year).

 

In this project the children will learn:

To understand the features used by authors and cartoonists in comics and film to describe superheroes;
To read comic strips and dialogue .
To design a comic strip and use it to tell a story;
To use music movement and musical instruments to express the characteristics of fictional characters;
To identify acceptable behaviour and give reasons for your choices;
To identify real life ‘superheroesand describe their lives.
To identify healthy eating habits.

 

Alongside this we will also….

  • Have daily numeracy sessions.
  • Have daily literacy and phonic sessions.
  • Have daily Helper Heddiw (Welsh oracy) sessions and our Welsh focus is personal details such as name (Pwy wyt ti ?), feelings (Sut wyt ti?), and illnesses (Beth sy’n bod?).
  • Follow our values curriculum, with our whole school value being ‘Generosity’ and within RE we will be exploring the concept of special things, Christian values such as truth, honesty and forgiveness, and Harvest celebrations.
  • Follow our ICT scheme which this term focuses on Programming,Data handling and creating Mind Maps.
  • Develop our creative skills focusing on drawing and painting portraits and make clay models.
  • Develop scientific skills by looking at how bodies change, lifecycles, life processes and human senses.

 

And so much more !


As I am sure you are aware, there is ongoing concern in the UK about the content of children's packed lunches, so please endeavour to give your children a good start in life, by providing them with a balanced lunch which contains fruit and vegetables and little processed food which is often high in sugar and salt. Chocolate biscuits/cakes/crisps etc should ideally be limited to an occasional treat rather than a daily necessity. Sadly, we often see several of these items included every day and we notice the behavioural/concentration highs and lows that they can cause.
As always, we are here to help you by encouraging the children to try new foods. We will be doing this as part of our topic, but I am also happy to encourage children to try new foods which you would like to include in their lunches - please just let me know in the morning and I will sit with them at lunchtime to encourage at least 'a taste'!
